As development on the follow-up to Frostpunk 2 continues, gamers are guessing about what they may expect. Frostpunk 2 is a survivalist thriller, resembling its predecessor, and actually occurs 30 years after the events of the original Frostpunk.
No official launch schedule has been announced by the title’s developer, 11-Bit Studio, however, they are already hard at work on the project. They haven’t revealed anything about the title itself, but they have published a fascinating video to whet fans’ appetites.
Here’s everything we know about it.
Frostpunk 2 Trailer
Shots of an oil exploration site down in the icy countryside are shown with a narration that says, “The world has turned against us, but we endured.”. As seen by the vacant houses and smashed medication containers, the focus on oil as a possible combustion supply remains constant all through the shots.
As a narrator muses on allegations of treachery and “[jettisoning] God,” the video focuses on a bright scarlet bloodstain against the ghostly landscape. Finally, a bleeding stripped guy is seen crawling on the ice with his wrists tied and the phrase “LIAR” on his torso.
Frostpunk 2 Release Date
“Frostpunk 2” was unveiled by 11-bit productions in the summertime of last year. Despite the fact that you may add the title to your wishlists on Steam, Epic Games Store, and GOG, the publisher has still yet to reveal when the successor will be available.
Nevertheless, taking a glance at the original title’s production cycle might help put additional insight into the matter. It’s not certain when “Frostpunk” was put into development, but it took around a year and a half for the game to be released.
A release date for the successor has not yet been announced, however, it is likely that it will be in the springtime of 2023. “Frostpunk 2” may have a lengthier production timeframe than its original because of the game’s increased scope and polish.
What’s The Game Setting?
New London, a couple of decades after the happenings of the original title, is the setting for Frostpunk 2. However, they have learned to evolve and grow harder amid the cold tundra. You’ll take over the role of the city’s mayor and have to figure out how to make things better in the face of adversity. Forget about using coals; you’ll have to hunt for and burn oil as a substitute.
You’ll probably have to deal with a lot of challenges inside the neighborhood, so good judgment will be required. Empathy or sheer strength must be your guiding principles if you want to keep your population under command and united as you confront the challenges ahead.
