It’s been a long old wait, but fans of 11 Bit Studios’ celebrated post-apocalyptic city builder Frostpunk on Xbox and Playstation will finally be able to get their hands on the game three expansions from Wednesday, 26th June.
Frostpunk launched on consoles toward the end of 2019, introducing its narrative-rich blend of survival sim and city builder – in which players must overcome gruelling conditions to keep their fledgling community alive in a desolate sub-zero world – to a legion of new fans. Since then, three distinctive expansions have built upon Frostpunk’s punishing, but wonderfully compelling core in interesting new ways, and it’s these that will finally debut on consoles later this month.
The first of these to be released on PC, The Rifts, is the smallest of the bunch, adding a new Endless Mode map that splits the landscape into awkward chunks. To help players survive in this challenging new locale, the expansion adds a new mechanic in the form of constructible bridges, enabling players to ferry gathered resources between the map’s scattered islands.
