Frostpunk Gets a Console Release This Fall

The post-apocalyptic city builder, Frostpunk, is finally making the jump to consoles this October, so PS4 and Xbox owners can get in on the action. 

While PC gamers have been able to enjoy Frostpunk for a bit, console owners (PS4 and Xbox One) will be able to enjoy the frosty experience soon. Today, 11Bit studios announced the game will arrive on consoles on October 11th:

Frostpunk, a grim society-simulator and city-builder in which players struggle against the frozen post-apocalyptic landscape as the ruler of the last city on Earth, garnered high praise among PC-users. Now players can experience the unique gameplay, make thoughtful decisions, and follow a powerful narrative on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this fall.

“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 DesignerJakub Stokalski
