11 bit Studios announced their plans to finally released the survival simulation, Frostpunk, on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 11.
Originally released on PC, Frostpunk is set in a post-apocalyptic landscape where players assume the role as the ruler of the last city on Earth.
“From day one we knew we wanted to bring Frostpunk to consoles. At the same time, we didn’t want it to be just a port. We wanted Frostpunk to feel like a native console experience, so we redesigned pretty much every game element to work intuitively with a gamepad. Among the new, console-specific UI changes we have an express menu for quick access to most common building actions, easy to use choice-wheels, top-down view for precise building placement, upscaled icons, and much more. We truly believe it will become a new benchmark for the genre on Xbox One and PlayStation 4,” says Frostpunk Senior Lead Designer, Jakub Stokalski.
Additionally, the developer released a new trailer to show a cinematic view of the game to set the tone. During gameplay, players will need to do whatever they can to ensure the survival of their people. Combined with a story, players will find hours of complex strategic as each in-game day passes.
Merge Games will release the physical edition of the game on October 22.
