Some cool news from 11 Bit Studios today as they will be releasing the anticipated Frostpunk DLC "The Last Autumn" in January. The DLC will drop on January 21st, 2020 across all PC retailers the game is sold through. And much like the season of autumn, this DLC will have a profound effect on the world inside the game. Change is coming, and in a way you might not expect. Here's a few more details as well as a quote from the Lead Designer on the upcoming addition.
The Last Autumn depicts an important turning point in the Frostpunk universe, as it sheds light on events of the story that happen before the winter strikes. Imagine the world of Frostpunk before the frost consumed everything; the world that is full of life and energy. See the civilization's last attempts to remain unbeaten by nature and build a generator in an effort to save your people. Experience the uneven battle against winter as it slowly takes over the British Empire and threatens its collapse. The Last Autumn offers new buildings, technologies, and Books of Laws that will assist you in navigating through unprecedented social issues and shape the Frostpunk society in previously unknown ways.
"We're really excited to show our latest work to the community. The Last Autumn will debut a month later than originally planned, but we firmly believe that it will be worth the wait since it's one of the most amazing things we did with Frostpunk so far. And the story doesn't end here. The third DLC is coming so 2020 will be a big year for Frostpunk." – says Kuba Stokalski, Frostpunk Lead Designer.
