A new campaign mission and more has arrived in Frozenheim Update 0.3.0, delivering players with their first "meaty" update featuring new playable content and features.

Frozenheim is a game that's all about taking control of a Viking settlement and everything that entails. You'll have to manage your people, survive the harshness of the weather, and make a living by sending your warriors out on raids. First revealed earlier this year, the game has been available in Steam Early Access for a little over two months. Now, a brand-new update has arrived with a nice mix of content!

What's New in Frozenheim Update 0.3.0?

The first big addition in Frozenheim Update 0.3.0 is a brand-new campaign mission titled "Of the Sacred Spout," continuing the story another step and inching the game slightly closer to its full release.

The Upgrade system has had some additions, too. Houses can now be upgraded and the Weaponsmith can be upgraded multiple times going forward. Investing your riches into your town will give you some neat new benefits for your Viking citizens.

One of the many issues the game has had in early access is with its buildings; they would occasionally disappear entirely. While one might have suspected Loki's magic, this was actually just a bug and has now been fixed, along with a number of other issues related to building visuals. Other structures got some upgrades, too, such as with the new model for the Well.

The final major addition is a new "Survival" mode that will give players a different kind of challenge compared to standard gameplay. More new content (and bug fixes) will be coming every month according to the Frozenheim Roadmap; you can read about all of today's changes in detail in the full Frozenheim 0.3.0 update patch notes. It's a good time to pick up this game if you've been thinking about it, too — you can buy Frozenheim for PC via Steam for just $15.29 or your regional equivalent, a 10% discount that lasts for the next week.
