The hit indie strategy game Frostpunk launched today on PS4 and Xbox One.
11 Bit Studios has rebuilt the PC game on consoles. It mixes post-apocalyptic survival, city-builder, and society simulation into one package.
Set during the 19th-century, you play as a leader of what is possibly the last city inhabited on Earth. Your job is to rule the city, maintain and build its infrastructure, and develop steam-powered technologies to survive the winter.
Frostpunk is a strategy game at heart. Typically, these games don’t do as well on consoles as they do on PC players. 11 Bit Studios says that they wanted to create “a strategic experience that plays naturally on a controller while still being engaging and thrilling.”
The console edition is available today via the Microsoft Store and PlayStation Store for $29.99. It’s also available at retail for $34.99. The Signature Edition for collectors is $44.99. It features an art book, CD soundtrack, enamel pins, and more.
