Frostpunk Endless Mode Out Now So You Can Build a Frozen City Without the Fear of Death

Frostpunk Endless Mode Out Now So You Can Build a Frozen City Without the Fear of Death

Baby it's cold outside.

Frostpunk, the post-apocalyptic civilization-sim where players are given the near-impossible task of keeping a society alive in the frozen wasteland. But a new update that's free for owners will let them play Frostpunk as a more traditional city-builder without the fear of death looming over every construction.

Developer 11bit announced that Frostpunk will get a new Endless Mode that will let players continue city-building beyond the requisite time limit in two distinct modes: Serenity and Endurance. Serenity lowers the difficulty, so players can build the best frozen city of their dreams while Endurance will see how long you last under the intense conditions.

Frostpunk is post-apocalyptic strategy game where players build a city that can survive a nuclear winter. Think Snowpiercer but instead of being on a train, players build a society around a big heater. It's also really good and one of the best strategy games of the year and you should check it out if you haven't already.
