11 bit studios have announced that their award-winning PC hit, Frostpunk, is out now as the Frostpunk: Console Edition on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Frostpunk: Console Edition is available today digitally for $29.99, and at retail for $34.99.
Thanks to a partnership with Merge Games, the Signature Edition for collectors launches at $44.99 featuring a beautiful art book, CD soundtrack, enamel pins and more. Also good to note is that the console edition isn’t just a simple port of the PC version, it was actually rebuilt from the ground up.
Frostpunk puts the player in the role of a 19th-century leader of what is possibly the last community on Earth, living in the last city still standing. Ruling the city’s population, maintaining and building up its infrastructure, and developing steam-powered technologies to survive an apocalyptic winter are tasks that players need to handle, which of course, isn’t going to be easy to accomplish.
According to a press release, 11 bit studios aimed to create a strategic experience that plays naturally on a controller while still being engaging and thrilling. The team’s ambitious goal was to set a new benchmark for strategy games on consoles and they’re confident that’s exactly the goal they achieved.
