11 bit Studios has announced that Frostpunk: Console Edition is getting all three expansions released for the title this week. Players who already own the game can get all three expansions with the Season Pass or new players can instantly get access to the base game and all three expansions via the Complete Edition. The expansions are arriving on Xbox One and PS4 on July 21, 2021.
Check out the new Frostpunk trailer to see all three expansions in action on consoles:
Kuba Stokalski, Lead Designer of Frostpunk detailed:
All expansions had to serve two purposes when we designed them. We wanted to broaden the lore since the game portrays people’s hardship in the fight with nature, and we put a lot of emphasis on narrative, but also introduce new mechanics. We didn’t want to go with delivering more fun that plays almost like the base game approach, and three expansions ended up being distinguishable from the base game but also each other. And we’re happy that console players, at last, have a chance to play them. Thank you for waiting so patiently.
You can also check out the detailed commentary in the video below:
All three expansions bring their own unique gameplay mechanics to the title however the most unique expansion is The Last Autumn because it completely changes the pace of the game. It is a prequel to the original story and the deadly frost has not arrived yet and your goal is to complete the construction of the generator before the frost arrives.
On the Edge is set after the story of the main game as you try to maintain and self-sustain an outpost far away from the main hub and there is no generator as well. Your main goal is to extract resources from a recently discovered military warehouse and either send them back to New England or keep them for yourself and grew your outpost into a self-sustaining settlement. The Rifts adds a new map for Endless mode and bridges, and new buildings.
Starting July 21, 2021, you will be able to purchase them separately and as a bundle in Season Pass on both Xbox One and PS4. If you want the base game as well, the Complete Edition will include everything for you in one bundle.
