Frostpunk announced its release date of 24th April, 2018 with a brand new trailer, named “Serenity” in stark contrast to the game’s harsh, frigid reality. The spiritual successor to This War of Mine will land on PCs in a digital version and retail version in the form of a special “Victorian Edition”. This special edition includes the “New London – The Art of Frostpunk” hardcover book which shows off the beautifully crafted artwork and concept images from Frostpunk’s icy interior.
We wanted to make it before end of Q1, but we ended up slightly moving the release further. The reason is simple – we needed this time for the final polishing required to deliver a game that, we believe, is the best 11 bit title so far. For us, production value is always the most important thing and a bug-free, carefully-balanced game is crucial to offer gamers the experience we want them to have. This War of Mine was a unique game about moral choices, and with Frostpunk, we are bringing this to a whole new level. It’s true that it took us some time to get here, but I’m happy to say that it was worth it!
