Frostpunk: Console Edition is just a couple of weeks away from its scheduled release and to celebrate, 11 bit studios has released a new story trailer for the game, showing some of the stylized cinematics that open the story mode.

When they find a massive old generator, they realize it is time to build a city that can weather the cold. You can check the story trailer out below:
