One of the most outstanding games of the last five years, Frostpunk (2018) was a tautly-tensioned game taxing the players with difficult moral choices over managing workforces, researching technology and enforcing order through a police force or manipulating religious faith. The original game was outstanding, but increasingly ingenious expansions gave the game a lot of variety and replayability.
The sequel picks up thirty years after the original, with explorers from the city of New London uncovering oil reserves in the frozen wasteland. The race to exploit oil technology generates new challenges and conflicts, which the player has to navigate carefully.
Frostpunk 2 does not have a release date as yet, with the smart money suggesting a late 2022 or 2023 release.
