Frostpunk is a city-building, survival, and strategy game that's quite popular on PC. In a frozen world, people develop steam-powered machines to oppose the overwhelming cold. You, the city ruler, have to manage both the inhabitants and the infrastructure. Leaders face numerous challenges, frequently questioning morality and the basic foundation of what we consider as a society.
Frostpunk: Console Edition is the Xbox One port that features controller support so you can enjoy the experience on consoles. We thought that without a mouse and keyboard, the game would be hard to play, but that's not the case at all. If you're interested in such experience, be sure to pick it up for $30 through the Microsoft Store.
In Windows Central's review, Jez Corden wrote, "There are a ton of great strategy games on Xbox One these days, including Stellaris, Surviving Mars, They Are Billions, and Age of Wonders; but Frostpunk's dynamism, thoughtful console controls, setting, and narrative elements, for me, give it a special place above all of the others. This is a staggering achievement that strategy game fans shouldn't miss out on."
