11 bit Studios’ upcoming post-apocalyptic city-building simulation Frostpunk has a ton of potential, as discussed before, and now we’ll finally get to see that potential unleashed in its finished glory soon, as a release date has finally been announced for next month. Said announcement comes courtesy of a new cinematic trailer ironically titled “Serenity,” which you can check out below. And as seen by the use of Johnny Cash’s cover of “God’s Gonna Cut You Down,” the developers truly mean business when it comes to how harsh this alternate Victorian-era setting and its icy setting can be.
Set in the last city on Earth following an overwhelming cold, you’ll have to manage an industrial city that has to do whatever it can to keep the heat flowing, because as the tagline states, the city must survive. Of course, the choices you have to make when it comes to maintaining said survival won’t always be pretty. Frostpunk will also be receiving a special “Victorian Edition” for retail as well, which includes a hardcover “New London – The Art of Frostpunk” book showing off the game’s concept art and designs, with a price tag of $34.99 USD. Whichever version you choose to go with, Frostpunk aims to deliver a unique and challenging simulation when it hits PC on April 24, so make sure to keep an eye out for it.
