Frostpunk 2 – Everything we know so far – release date, beta access, plot, and price


The original Frostpunk, just in case you haven’t played it, is probably one of the best strategy games released in the last six years since its release in April 2018.

The city-building survival game set in an alternate 19th Century saw you taking over the reins as the head of a rag-tag band of survivors of a freezing apocalypse.

The eruptions of Krakatoa and Mount Tambora, alongside the unexplained dimming of the sun in this alternate version of history, caused a permanent volcanic winter, so you had better wrap up warm or you won’t feel the benefit when you are outside.

The original Frostpunk was nominated for Best PC Game of the Year in 2018 at the Golden Joysticks, and now some six years later we are about to embark into the cold, harsh wastelands once more.

When is Frostpunk 2 released?

We now have a confirmed release date of the 25th of July for Frostpunk 2 from developer 11 Bit Studios. The game will be available on Steam, Epic Game Store, GOG as well as Xbox and PlayStation. It will also appear on Day One on Xbox Game Pass.

There will be a beta version with access “in April” for those who pre-purchase the Deluxe Edition of the game ahead of time. There is no date given as yet for pre-purchasers of the normal version
