11 Bit Studios has revealed the third and final piece of Frostpunk’s DLC by unveiling On The Edge. On the Edge is set after the events of the Great Storm and an expedition group is sent out from New London to complete an assignment. There will be new challenges to face and new mechanics to get to grips with both in the city as well as the Frostlands.
Maciej Sułecki, lead designer of Frostpunk: On The Edge, said
The Edge symbolizes a cross between what has been the past and what’s new to come. Although the society of New London — the city believed to be the last one on Earth — has survived, it doesn’t mean the struggle is over. The people face new challenges that are catalysts to spark up divisions, new problems, and conflicts based on the fact that people might have different points of view, different perspectives. This is the Edge that you will face as the leader of the society that survived the great snowstorm of Frostpunk .
In our review for Frostpunk, Jason wrote:
Frostpunk is a horrifyingly playable post-apocalyptic survival game that demands more out of you than most games ever could. Each decision and each sacrifice you make is hard on your city and on you. There are so many impossible choices and no win situations that the game is almost hard to play, but it’s so compelling that you will be unable to step away from it. The only real negative is the sheer overwhelming nature of the world the game is set in, and really that is more of a compliment to the designers than anything else. Frostpunk is a truly harrowing game in the best possible way and one that will have you steeped in the harsh reality of eternal winter for dozens of hours to come.
