Frostpunk's second story expansion is set to drop in late January 2020. The prequel will focus on the days before the winter started ravaging the game's landscapes. The available DLCs can be bought separately or as part of the Season Pass.
Frostpunk's developer studio - 11 bit have now fully unveiled the game's latest expansion. The hefty DLC named The Last Autumn will serve as a story prequel to the plot of the base game you already know and enjoy.
The Last Autumn DLC will serve as a significant turning point in the Frostpunk universe. The expansion will shed some light on the events that unfolded before the winter struck. The players will be given an opportunity to see the game's landscapes before the frosty air turned them into what we've seen in the base game.
You'll be given an insight into the civilization's final efforts to thrive in a chilly world and build a generator in a bid to save your people. The Last Autumn will bring 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".
Frostpunk Lead Designer, Kuba Stokalski said: "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".
The Last Autumn is included in the Frostpunk Season Pass that launched for PC back in August. The pass will grant its holders access to all three DLC packs: The Rifts, The Last Autumn, and the unannounced pack codenamed "Project TVADGYCGJR".
The DLCs can also be bought separately, and all expansions will also launch for consoles at a later date.
