11 bit Studios have today confirmed that Frostpunk, its ice-cold strategy game is coming to Xbox One and PS4 later this year.
Set in 19th-century industry revolution, Frostpunk tells the story of our planet freezing over, ending civilisations and forcing survivors to adapt. You lead the last society on Earth and it’s up to you to build the city your survivors live in, explore the wastelands and rule the society in preparation for life in a new world.
It’s had a huge crowd on PC so it’s exciting to see the game transfer over to consoles, should be interesting to see how it adapts to controllers. According to the press release, this is priority one;
Focusing on a smooth transition to consoles, great efforts are being taken to re-design the game and adjust its mechanics for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, especially when it comes to controls. 11 bit studios still have some work to do but are close to the finish line, creating an intuitive interface allowing gameplay to feel natural even when playing with a controller.
There’s no release date yet, but keep an eye on Finger Guns for the latest on Frostpunk’s console debut.
