Frostpunk is a popular PC game and the developer just added new features to the already expansive experience. The update is live on Steam and should hit Universal Windows Platform shortly. Frostpunk is currently available for roughly $30 through the Microsoft Store and other retailers. It's a great game so be sure to check it out if you like strategy titles.
If you find "Hard" difficulty too easy, now you can test your limits to survive the winter apocalypse in the brand new "Survivor Mode". Survivor Mode features new requirements which make the game even harder. There's no active pause so you'll need to think fast, and progress is only saved automatically so all your decisions are final. To start a new game in Survivor Mode, select a scenario and toggle the switch below the "Customization" button.
Frostpunk is a city-building, survival, and strategy experience. In a frozen world, people develop steam-powered technology to oppose the overwhelming cold. The city ruler has to manage both the inhabitants and the infrastructure the citizens live in. Leaders face numerous challenges, frequently questioning morality and the basic foundation of what we consider to be an organized society. Here optimization and resource management often clash with empathy and thoughtful decision-making. While city and society management consume most of the ruler's time, at some point exploration of the outside world is necessary to understand its history and present state.
In our review, we said "despite the gameplay-slowing visual similarities between structures, Frostpunk overall is a wonderfully emotional and engaging city-builder strategy game that will challenge you with tough tasks and even tougher choices."
