Frostpunk is about to head even further back in-game: the Frostpunk: The Last Autumn DLC has been announced, and it's coming to digital platforms for PC next year.
Let's kick things off with the trailer for Frostpunk: The Last Autumn.
In The Last Autumn, groups of settlers have headed out to a new land as a precaution against the weather getting just a wee bit colder than usual according to a press release from the publisher. The sight of green grass and trees will be pretty unfamiliar to players of this survival game, but it's pretty interesting to see a new setting explored. Players will be able to take advantage of new buildings, technologies, and Books of Laws that will help you shape your society.
This latest DLC will see players trying to build a generator that will keep everyone alive. The British Empire is threatened with collapse as you try to build a bastion of civilization before the oncoming frost consumes everything. The process is, of course, going about as well as one might expect — you can expect to see a challenging scenario fraught with disasters and hard decisions.
