Frostpunk devs teasing a brand new recreation with snow, oil, and blood
Tis the season to spaff your advertising funds on large bulletins with lavish trailers and automobiles descending from auditorium ceilings, however Frostpunk builders 11 Bit Studio are enjoying this one low-key. At present they put out a video titled “A Tease Of Issues To Come…” which positive seems like one thing Frostpunk-y, although they are saying completely nothing about what it’s. They’ve beforehand talked about eager to make a RPG spin-off, so perhaps that is that. Or a straight sequel. Or… dunno. They are saying they’re going to really announce the sport in August.
“The wasteland coated by snow’s quilt appears quiet, calm, asleep as if the wind was its lullaby,” the trailer’s description says. “But, the crimson scars mark the battleground for treasured assets price breaking apart alliances over.”
They added on Twitter, “Past snow-covered tracks, with wasteland upon wasteland, we go hoping towards hope.”
That is about all they must say, although they tag it #NewGame so hey, it is their new recreation. The trailer’s only a teaser for the precise announcement, approaching August twelfth.
In 2019, 11 Bit advertising director Patryk Grzeszczuk did trace that they have been contemplating making an RPG. He informed GamesIndustry.biz that they’d constructed Frostpunk very a lot as a universe that would home future issues.
“We needed to create a world, after which fill that world with tales, with locations, after which construct connections between them,” Grzeszczuk mentioned.” “[The DLC] is increasing on the universe, it’s including new story, and explaining some issues that could be hinted at up to now. That is what actually drives us; the world of Frostpunk is rising, and we’re considering that, sooner or later we must always take into consideration, perhaps not a sequel, however a spin-off — an RPG set in the identical universe.”
So perhaps this thriller recreation is an RPG? Or a sequel. Or… however certainly it is some type of Frostpunk. Usually I might say “That is rubbish, what a horrible trailer, what a nasty announcement, what’s even the purpose of this” and delete the e-mail however, properly, Frostpunk’s an honest recreation.
The grim settlement-building administration sim is ready round a lone megafurnace because the world falls right into a lethal international freeze, and it will take cautious planning and troublesome selections on your colony to outlive. Mainly, it is Snowpiercer however not on a prepare. See our Frostpunk assessment and the RPS verdict for extra on it.
Frostpunk is spinning off a board recreation too, made by Glass Cannon Unplugged after elevating a whopping €2.5 million (£2.1m) on Kickstarter.
