11 Bit Studios’ glorious post-apocalyptic city builder Frostpunk is poised to receive its third and final expansion, On The Edge, later this month, and its scenario-specific gameplay twists have now been detailed in a new developer video.
In contrast to Frostpunk’s The Last Autumn expansion, which showed the world prior to the big freeze seen in the base game, On The Edge is set after the Great Storm that caps its main story.
Once the Great Storm has subsided, a multitude of new landmarks are unearthed across the world. One of these is a previously lost Army Warehouse, which serves as the focal point for this latest expansion. Rather than tasking players with the continued management of New London, On The Edge gives them control of this newly discovered outpost, asking them to establish a civilisation in some very different conditions – with many of Frostpunk’s core mechanics turned on their heads to create a distinctive challenge.
