11 bit Releases New Frostpunk Trailer!

11 bit has released a new development video for their upcoming title, Frostpunk. The focus was on how players can rule over their constituents; either they can be a dictator and rule through fear or be a noble ruler who listens to the people.

In Frostpunk, you play as a ruler over a steam-powered city in a froze wasteland. You’ll oversea the city’s development while managing the ebb and flow of resources, which in turn affects the people living there. If things are going bad, for example, a rift between groups of people can form. Fighting could break out. From here, you’ll have to decide on how to quell the violence via oppression or some form diplomacy. Given how nuanced 11 bit’s games have been in the past, I’m sure things will be more complicated than these two paths seem initially.

Frostpunk will be available on Steam, GOG, Humble Store, etc. for $29.99. There’s been no word on a release date outside of 2018 and soon. We'll be sure to let you know when that "soon" turns into a hard date though.
