With both Frostpunk and BattleTech hitting digital stores today, PC fans are currently spoiled for choice. In the case of Frostpunk, the city-builder-meets-survival-of-the-human-race, we could be talking about game of the year. At least from a strategy-sim perspective. No game in the history of the genre has felt so intense, where something as simple as sending a group of people out to collect wood takes on an ominous and monumental tone.
And that's because it takes place within an alternate Victorian-era British Empire, where a new ice age has arrived and humanity is on the brink of extinction. Forced to leave the streets of London you're put in charge of an expedition to find a settlement. Only you find nothing but an inactive generator, and so begin construction of the last human city.
It's both beautifully presented and graphically impressive. The snow deformation in this and God of War make 2018 the year of digital show. Then there's the steampunk influence that adds an almost sci-fi vibe to everything. Or the fact that within the first hour you'll need to decide if children should be put to work or not. We've been playing this quite steadily for a few days now so be sure to check back for our review in the coming days.
In the meantime you can grab Frostpunk over at GOG.com
