revealed that Frostpunk 2's release date is set for July 25, 2024. and that it will also be available on day one on PC Games Pass


In addition to the release date, the brief Frostpunk trailer also contained pre-order info for the Deluxe Edition, which will offer access to a closed beta set to take place in April. The beta will feature part of the final release's sandbox mode, which will offer players more flexibility in choosing their starting communities and factions.


The Digital Deluxe edition will include three paid post-release DLCs, access to the story mode 72 hours before the official release, and bonuses including a digital novella.

Frostpunk 2 will attempt to build on the popularity of the original game, which was a surprise hit when it was released back in 2018.

But this time the inner turmoils, sparked by rising social differences, mean that players will be facing new kinds of threads that are beyond the bare survival of the first time."

In particular, he says, Frostpunk 2 will aim to "tell a meaningful story about human ambition, societies striving for their ideas, and the consequences of hard decisions which are not always respected by everyone." Among other features, Frostpunk 2 will include factions like the "methodical Technocrats" and the Icebloods, who are "advocates of adaptation over development."
