Warsaw, Poland – January 21st, 2020 — 11 bit studios is exceedingly proud to announce that The Last Autumn, Frostpunk’s biggest and most complex scenario yet, launches today on PC and is available via Steam and GOG. Available as part of the Frostpunk Season Pass released in August, this massive expansion is also available for purchase separately for $16.99.
The Last Autumn is a riveting prequel story taking place before the endless winter that the Frostpunk universe is known for most. Experience the events that lead to an icy cataclysm and the construction of Frostpunk’s iconic Generator. Working conditions will be harsh and not everyone will be happy with the situation at hand. Some of your people — albeit they shouldn’t know it — could even pay the ultimate price as they strive together to give humankind its last and only hope. It’s up to you to weigh the stakes and decide how much you’re willing to sacrifice for the greater good of humanity.
“Everyone associates Frostpunk with snow and winter, so our goal was to provide them with something totally new and change the tone of the game a bit. It was a challenge, but the result is the biggest and the most tone-nuanced scenario in the whole Frostpunk universe” – says Kuba Stokalski, Frostpunk Lead Designer.
Frostpunk: The Last Autumn new features:
- A prequel story set in a new environment not yet covered by snow that allows players to construct the Generator from the ground up to prepare their society for the upcoming winter.
- A new Endless Mode variant — Builders — that redefines the challenges players will face by providing different setups and solutions.
- Two new Books of Laws allowing players to shape their society in previously unknown ways.
- New threats and issues to deal with such as toxic gases and workers going on strike.
- Influence society in creative new ways from establishing labour unions to outright manipulation.
- New technology tree, inventions to discover, and resources to obtain.
- 25 new buildings to construct such as docks, a telegraph station, a labour union building and more.
- New social classes including Convicts — a cheap and obedient workforce.
- Discover even more new mechanics and tweaks to gameplay.
