A number of tweaks and improvements have been added!
While it was reported earlier this year that the city-building survival video game Frostpunk would make it to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this summer, but the said console release has now been pushed to October 11. A PS4 retail launch has been scheduled a week later (Friday, October 18).
“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,” said Jakub Stokalski, Frostpunk Senior Lead Designer.
The official description of the critically acclaimed title reads –
Frostpunk – a grim society-simulator and city-builder and a PC best-seller in one, in which players struggle against the frozen post-apocalyptic landscape as the ruler of the last city on Earth – will be launching on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on October 11th.
Frostpunk is a society survival game where heat means life and every decision comes at a price. Presenting complex strategic gameplay, demanding challenges and rich story, Frostpunk extends its unmatched survival experience to consoles. Adapted to the new platforms, with revised controls and adjusted mechanics – Frostpunk: Console Edition allows you to fully test your tactical prowess on the frozen wastelands.
Developed and published by 11 bit studios, Frostpunk was released for Microsoft Windows in April 2018.
