New Prequel DLC for 'Frostpunk'
I’d say I’m shocked to see 11 bit studios take Frostpunk, a game that’s as much a morality study as it is a city-building strategy title, and put gamers in the time prior to the world freezing over, but they’ve taught me to expect the unexpected when it comes to Frostpunk.
After all, the game – which I loved in both of its forms – got an Endless mode added to it, something I thought was absolutely impossible and counter to everything the game was about, and the mad geniuses made it work!
So when The Last Autumn hits PC on January 21st, I’ll be there. I have to see what they’ve done now…
Here’s the press release:
Frostpunk was once a world full of life and energy – New DLC expands on the story behind the popular city-building, survival game!
The Last Autumn DLC releases in January. Explore the world of Frostpunk before the frost consumed everything.
The Last Autumn depicts an important turning point in the Frostpunk universe, as it sheds light on events of the story that happen before the winter strikes. Imagine the world of Frostpunk before the frost consumed everything; the world that is full of life and energy. See the civilization’s last attempts to remain unbeaten by nature and build a generator in an effort to save your people. Experience the uneven battle against winter as it slowly takes over the British Empire and threatens its collapse. The Last Autumn offers new buildings, technologies, and Books of Laws that will assist you in navigating through unprecedented social issues and shape the Frostpunk society in previously unknown ways.
“We’re really excited to show our latest work to the community. The Last Autumn will debut a month later than originally planned, but we firmly believe that it will be worth the wait since it’s one of the most amazing things we did with Frostpunk so far. And the story doesn’t end here. The third DLC is coming so 2020 will be a big year for Frostpunk.” – says Kuba Stokalski, Frostpunk Lead Designer.
The Last Autumn is included in the Frostpunk Season Pass that was released in August for PCs. The pass grants access to all three DLC packs: The Rifts, The Last Autumn, and the unannounced pack codenamed “Project TVADGYCGJR”. If you don’t have the Season Pass, each DLC pack can be bought separately. All expansions will arrive on consoles at a later date.
Last up — the cherry on top, if you will — 11 bit studios has a special treat for the musically-inclined part of the Frostpunk community. Frostpunk’s ‘Suite for String Quartet’, by composer Piotr Musiał, is comprised of the game’s main theme and accompanied by the music from ‘The City Must Survive’. Sheet music for this stellar composition can be found here. May it serve as a source for great musical interpretations!
