There’s good news for fans of the hit game Frostpunk! Announced just earlier today, the new mode is an Endless survival mode. Fans have gone absolutely insane over the news, with many praising 11-Bit Studios for listening to fans desires every step of the way in development. The top comment on the trailer states,
“So let me understand this. 11 bit studios makes an awesome game. We all love it. But we ask ‘hey can we have a sandbox endless mode?”. Take a bit of time. And then they give us what we asked for x10. YOU GUYS ARE AMAZING.”
Frostpunk isn’t done just releasing an Endless mode though. Within this new game type brings two ways to play. The first is Endurance, the second being Serenity. Endurance is made for those who want to face the hardest challenge they’ve ever faced in the cold winter, while Serenity gives lots of resources, mild weather, and short gales.
You’re able to have more freedom designing your town in Serenity, while Endurance will test you. In Endurance, you will get randomized events. 11-Bit Studios stated:
“You can also expect randomized events, such as your generator being turned off for many days.”
There are four different starting maps to choose from, and you’re able to fully customize anything you want about the map. There are no time limits, so you’re able to play for as long as you desire. All building upgrades are unlocked, so you are free to explore many options for your city. A new change the game makes is one to the world around you. The developer wanted to keep Endless mode fresh, so the locations you visit will be randomized over time.
There is also a new mechanic with a building called the “Archives”. To use this, you will need to find a memento out in the wasteland. Once you do, you can build an Archive to retrieve your rewards. The developer even teased that:
“Who knows, maybe you’ll even find answers about the world around you.”
