Frostpunk Celebrates Christmas With A Free Update
Frostpunk is a city-building survival game developed and published by 11 bit studios. Frostpunk might be grim, bleak, and responsible for turning Julian into a ruthless dictator, but it’s also very popular. Developers 11 bit Studios have just announced a new Christmas FREE update:
A Christmas Carol Update Details:
– is available in Endless Mode
– adds a new Christmas themed quest line
– lets you construct a new building
– challenges you with new dilemmas
– it’s free!
The update introduces a new quest in Endless mode, where survivors will approach you in the hope that you’ll preserve Christmas for the next generation by hosting a big communal meal and distributing presents. I know that if I was facing a miserable (but probably brief) life in a frozen wasteland at the end of the world, a present would cheer me right up. Unfortunately, given the era, it would probably just be a hoop. The Victorians had rubbish toys.
It wouldn’t be Frostpunk without something to balance out the cheer, of course, so you’ll have to weigh the costs of having a party and plonking down a lovely Christmas tree with the benefit to morale. A celebration might go down well at first, but everyone will be a lot less chipper when they realise they’ve scoffed the last of the food.
A Christmas Carol is free and out now.
