Chilly survival builder Frostpunk 2 is out in July

Cool down the summer.

11 Bit Studios has announced that the follow-up to their 2018 survival city builder, Frostpunk 2, will arrive on July 25, 2024. You can pre-order the deluxe edition today to get access to the beta.

The original game focused on your building a city in the middle of a disastrous ice age to shelter your people. You had to keep them warm, gather resources, and endure harsh storms. Frostpunk 2 takes place 30 years later, and the focus moves back to a larger picture with your city sprawling out into much larger proportions with different factions vying to have their ambitions met.

The new trailer doesn’t have a lot of information we don’t already know (aside from the release date), but it does give us another glimpse at the direction it’s going with big, sprawling cities compared to the intimate ones of the original.

The trailer also shows off its Deluxe Edition, which includes seven-day beta access in April, post-launch DLC, access to story mode three days before launch, a novella, an artbook, and a soundtrack.

I enjoyed the original Frostpunk, but after I completed its campaign (on maybe my third attempt), I didn’t have much desire to return to it or its DLC. I love survival city builders, though, and Frostpunk is royalty among them, so I’ll probably give the second a try.

Frostpunk 2 releases on July 25, 2024 for PC, with Xbox Series X|S and PS5 versions afterward. It will be released on day one on PC Game Pass.
