11 Bit Studios has revealed the third and final piece of Frostpunk’s DLC On The Edge will be available to purchase from August 20th. The DLC was announced in June. On The Edge is set after the events of the main campaign acting as a sort of epilogue to what came before. There is some new content including new gameplay mechanics to get to grips with when handling diplomatic and economic issues, as well as new challenges to overcome as the journey to rebuild continues.
The description of On the Edge says:
On The Edge picks up when the base game has ended. The storm has exposed an army warehouse from times before the evacuation. A scouting party is sent from New London to set up an outpost and a steady chain of supplies. It’s time to take another step on the laborious path of rebuilding hope and leading humankind to survival. But… the world of Frostpunk is still full of embroiled dualities: trust or skepticism, independence or domination, union or separation. The question is, what path will you take?
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.
