Com2uS, in collaboration with NetEase and 11 bit studios, has opened Early Access for Frostpunk: Beyond the Ice on Google Play and Apple App Store for players living in the US, UK, and Philippines. Fans of the original Frostpunk, which has sold more than 3 million copies since its launch in 2018 and was a nominee for both the British Academy Film Awards and BAFTA Game Awards, will now have the chance to join the community early and provide feedback on the new mobile game ahead of the global launch later this year.
Frostpunk: Beyond the Ice is free
Frostpunk: Beyond the Ice is the free, eagerly anticipated official mobile game based on Frostpunk, a society survival city-builder and management game set in a post-apocalyptic ice age during the Second Industrial Revolution. To survive and thrive, players must combat the overwhelming cold by gathering basic survival materials, trading with other players, and creating a strategic stronghold. Players can order expedition teams to obtain resources and battle against dangerous wild animals or visit the Weather Station to accomplish missions even in disastrous conditions. In this dystopian universe, players’ choices alter the fate of the city.
