New Frostpunk Trailer Shows Us That “The City Must Survive” No Matter the Cost (VIDEO)


The upcoming city builder from 11 Bit Studios is looking to be a very dark game from the debut gameplay trailer. The video shows that in Frostpunk, no decision will be an easy one to make. There will be many a moral dilemma to be had as the trailer shows choices along the lines of how to handle a child being injured at work. Will you comfort them and send them back to work, or ban child labor all together? It also shows the choice to add sawdust as a filler in your starving people’s food, because that’s totally a healthy thing to do.

The whole point of Frostpunk is to help the city survive at all costs, so players will most likely need to make some choices that they wouldn’t feel comfortable making in real life. For the most part, it seems like a normal city building game in that your frozen town will start small and the players will build from there, but the decisions that must be made really take this title to another level. Watching out for things like resource levels are of course a must, but another important area to check on is the level of “hope” your citizens have. Without hope, your city can not thrive and we can’t have that now, can we?

So far there is no confirmed release date for Frostpunk, but the developer hopes to release it before the end of the year on Steam. What do you think of the gameplay trailer?
