This War is Mine developer 11 Bit Studios has formally announced Frostpunk 2, a sequel to the 2018 city survival game.
Set 30 years after the original, you’ll once again lead a city in the middle of a never-ending winter. Facing the harsh elements, you’ll also be on the constant hunt for oil and other sources of power and resources. There’s also the many needs of your people to worry about.
Co-Director Jakub Stokalski provides a quote on his team’s vision for the sequel. “What players should expect is a wide universe of choices, freedom to shape the society and the city however they see fit – and reap the consequences,” he says. “Frostpunk 2 builds on the conflicts of its predecessor – survival vs human values, life vs the arctic frost. But most importantly, it adds a new layer that is present in many aspects of the game – be it politics, be it society, be it technological progress – the conflict between humans and their nature.”
The first Frostpunk released on PC in 2018 and was swiftly followed by a console version a year later. This sequel was first teased back in June with a mysterious trailer, although we’d heard word the studio was working on a new next-gen game as far back as 2019.
