11 Bit Studios is excited to announce that three incredible DLCs will be finally gracing Frostpunk for both PS4 and Xbox One on July the 21st.
These three expansions hope to bring not only new gameplay mechanics and new buildings but also new stories and dilemmas which will hopefully expand the lore of the harsh city-builder survival simulator.
These three DLCs add a variety of new things to do and steer their focus to different areas of the greatly acclaimed game.
The Last Autumn is the most different out of the three expansions as it shies away from the snowy setting revealing a greener environment to the players. This prequel story features green trees, a ship dock that will be used to obtain resources as it tasks the player to oversee the rise of the base game’s Generator. This miracle invention is what could save humanity from the incoming storm. As time is so short, how far are you willing to push them to create this last hope?
On the Edge is set after the events of the Great Storm and also after the ending of the base game. (no spoilers) Your mission is to maintain an outpost alone outside of the city away from the generator. There is still a chance to get resources from an old military warehouse through it may be risky. Another risk you’ll be taking is maintaining the trading routes between other settlements.
Last but not least is The Rifts. This expansion will add a new map for an Endless mode as well as bridges. This new type of construction will be used to gather resources scattered across various islands you’ll get to explore.
Lead Designer of Frostpunk, Kuba Stokalski, stated that:
“All expansions had to serve two purposes when we designed them. We wanted to broaden the lore since the game portrays people’s hardship in the fight with nature, and we put a lot of emphasis on narrative, but also introduce new mechanics. We didn’t want to go with delivering more fun that plays almost like the base game approach, and three expansions ended up being distinguishable from the base game but also each other. And we’re happy that console players, at last, have a chance to play them. Thank you for waiting so patiently”

All expansions will be available to purchase on both Xbox One and PS4 on July the 21st. These packs can be bought separately or in a season pass. Frostpunk will also be available to be purchased in a bundled Complete Edition which will include the base game and the three expansions.
