Frostpunk is Getting a Free Expansion Next Week! New Scenario, New Stuff to Discover
Yes you heard me correctly! 11 Bit Studios announced that they will be releasing ‘Fall of Winterhome’. They’re calling it a free expansion that goes live for everyone that owns Frostpunk on September 19th.
This is basically a brand new scenario with new things to discover and more lore to uncover. The press release promises a fresh take on the morally ambiguous mechanics… which sounds interesting… but it’s not exactly clear if we’re talking new structures or laws.
The devs are keeping much of the expansion a secret. They aren’t divulging much about it because they of course know that much of the allure of Frostpunk is the self-discovery of just what the hell happened to these cities and the world.
I don’t expect this scenario to be a cake walk though. I mean even the first scenario is anything but a cake walk. This would probably cater to the seasoned Frostpunk players… at least that’s what I’m guessing.
11 bit Studios are also working on a full-blown paid expansion, although details about that and the time frame for that isn’t. If you remember the 2018 Frostpunk update roadmap the devs outlined, this free expansion is termed as ‘The Builders’ scenario update.
And with the name of the expansion called Fall of Winterhome, I’m guessing it doesn’t go well for the builders in the end. Regardless, we’ll know what cool new stuff this scenario has when it goes live on September 19th.
