From Press Release:
June 18, 2018 — Frostpunk – a grim mixture of city-building, survival and a leadership game – is updating today with the launch of Survivor Mode. Promised in the road map few weeks ago, and eagerly awaited by the community, Survivor Mode is the ultimate evaluation of your skills in the arctic wasteland.
A special feature for the most seasoned arctic survivalists among Frostpunk players, 11 bit studios is prepared to challenge you like never before. If you find Hard difficulty all too easy, this new mode will be the true test of your ability to survive the winter apocalypse! You can pause the game only by opening a menu – there is no active pause whatsoever! – and your progress is only saved upon exit, so all your decisions are final. The difficulty level itself is also more rough and demanding – meeting the people’s needs or balancing the delicate economy of your city will be even harder. What’s more, finishing the game in this mode will reward you with some new achievements! More can be found as explained by the devs in the new Survivor Mode Update 1.1.0 video.
Frostpunk also launches its very first discount on Steam with a 15% price drop RIGHT NOW! Frostpunk deftly mixes the city-builder and survival genres to create the first society survival game. As the ruler of the last city on Earth, it is your duty to manage both its citizens and the infrastructure. What decisions will you make to ensure society’s survival? What will you do when pushed to breaking point? Who will you become in the process?
