From Press Release:
August 6, 2018 — 11 bit studios produced and developed, Frostpunk was released in April but development and improvement on the title hasn’t slowed down! Today, 11 bit studios is happy to announce that the brand new DLC ‘People and Automatons’ is now available to all owners of Frostpunk – for free!
While working on this update, we at 11 bit studios have spent hours on top of hours browsing through forums and comment sections on Frostpunk. Based on suggestions from our community, most of the features and changes implemented directly address those concerns — and because of that we’d like to take this opportunity to thank all the people who are contributing there on daily basis. You do a great job! Without further delay, let’s take a look, at the new content;
- Naming Characters and Automatons — You can now change the names of your people and automatons. This feature not only allows you to dive deeper into the in-game world, but will also help you while managing your city because from now on, you’ll be able to search for individuals (both men and machines) using given names.
- New Visuals — We dedicated many hours working on new visuals for certain elements of the game, including; Hunter Airships, Hunters’ Huts, Gathering Posts, Outposts and Workshops. From now on your city will look better than ever before and what’s more, it will be easier to find certain facilities among all the other buildings.
- Intel NUC Skull Canyon and Razer Chroma Support — It’s rather self explanatory, really! If you own the aforementioned devices you can now use their full potential in our games. We think you’re gonna like it!
- Fixes, optimization and ALL THAT STUFF — As always, we crushed a number of bugs that were bothering our players and optimized here and there, improving the overall experience for the game. For the full list of changes, be sure to check the changelog.

That’s it for today, but remember that’s not our last word when it comes to Frostpunk. There are more free updates coming in the future, so be sure to follow our social media channels to stay up to date.
