If you’ve not already had (and brought on) your fill of tragedy and catastrophe in Frostpunk, you may need to take a look at the destiny of one other doomed settlement within the apocalyptic survival handle ’em up with a brand new free enlargement launched immediately. Set earlier than Frostpunk’s principal marketing campaign, ‘The Fall Of Winterhome’ explores a spot you’ll have heard of–and probably visited–throughout that, the fallen/exploded city of Winterhome. Only right here it hasn’t fairly fallen simply but. I’m positive you’ll be able to repair that hole within the continuity, you and your brilliant concepts about baby labour. Come meet the brand new residence you’re about to muff up.
Winterhome began out as a well-equipped analysis outpost however grew too massive and collapsed into anarchy, being little greater than a damage to salvage by the point gamers discover it in the principle story (a discovery which hardly conjures up hope in your individual settlement). This bonus marketing campaign goes down just a little earlier than then.
Senior lead designer Jakub Stokalski launched Fall Of Winterhome in a brand new devchat video:
“When you start the game, the city is at the brink of collapse. The previous captain ruled it with an iron fist, and neglected people’s needs for months. After some time of such treatment, people finally rebelled – but, as you can imagine, the previous captain didn’t want to go down easily. The fights were bloody and took many lives, but at the end the previous leader and his followers met their fate. That’s where you come in. Elected as the new captain, it’s your job to pick up the city from its knees. This task won’t be easy. Large parts of the city are destroyed and you’ll have to rebuild them to maintain chances of survival. Memories of the tyrant are still fresh so you’ll have to put in time and effort to make your people trust you.”
Along with new distinctive issues and duties, 11 Bit Studios say the Winterhome situation options new buildings too. They estimate the marketing campaign will take 4-6 hours to finish, which I assume is assuming you don’t royally muff it.
See the update 1.2.0 patch notes for extra on this and different modifications arriving immediately. The replace is now dwell on Steam and GOG.
