Frostpunk remains one of my favourite games of 2018. Its gritty, depressing realism still captures my imagination and I go back to it on a regular basis. The introduction of the endless mode made it literally replayable forever as you attempt to beat your best survival time.
The Rifts, which is available now on Steam, is the first paid expansion for Frostpunk and also the first expansion available as part of the game’s season pass. Both Frostpunk and the season pass are currently heavily discounted on Steam. Players who purchase the season pass will get The Rifts for free and will get access to the two other planned expansions.

The Rifts sees the introduction of a brand new map to the Endless Mode, where you use new gameplay mechanics to bridge the rifts to access new areas and expand your city in unprecedented ways.
If you don’t want to buy the full season pass, The Rifts can be purchased on its own for £3.99
The upcoming expansions, no release date as of yet, are:
- The Last Autumn (Q4 2019) – 11 bit studios vastly expand the Frostpunk universe by introducing a brand new scenario along with all-new game-changing mechanics and unique architecture, while also broadening the game’s lore and narrative.
- Project TVADGYCGJR (2020) – This mysteriously titled expansion (Can you crack the code?) will be coming in the early months of 2020. Scouts from the city of New London are on the hunt for information and their safe return is expected at the launch of The Last Autumn. Stay tuned to find out more!
All Frostpunk players also receive a free update as well. Three new Endless Mode maps are now available, Frozen Grove, Snowdrifts and Hanging Rock and are based on The Arks, Refugees, and Fall of Winterhome scenario maps.
