After previously being known for the harrowing survival game This War of Mine, developer 11 bit studios is back with another harrowing survival experience in the form of a new title set on an abandoned snowy planet, called Frostpunk.
The studio announced today that their next project will be Frostpunk, which takes players into a harsh, barren world that will test their morality and ability to survive. The game’s official website gives a bit more information on what to expect from Frostpunk, explaining:
“In a completely frozen world, people develop steam-powered technology to oppose the overwhelming cold. Society in its current form becomes ineffective and it has to change in order to survive.”
“What does this change mean? What is culture when morality stands in the way of existence? Think about how survival may, in the end, leave us different beings. Whether worse, better, stronger, weaker or, last but not least, more or less humane–that is debatable.”
The title has been confirmed so far for release on PC and will release in 2017 – 11 bit studios will be revealing more information about the game “soon,” according to the game’s official website. In the meantime, the debut trailer for Frostpunk is available to view below:
