Frostpunk is on its way to PS4 and Xbox One to bring a chill to the air this October, with a few UI changes to keep the strategy game flowing.
The gruelling city-builder game, where you protect one of mankind's last surviving outposts in a frozen post-apocalypse, will arrive on consoles on October 11 after a critically acclaimed PC release in April last year.
To go with its console launch, the game has had a few modifications to transfer that strategic flow from mouse and keyboard to gamepads a little easier.
“We wanted Frostpunk to feel like a native console experience, so we redesigned pretty much every game element to work intuitively with a gamepad," says senior lead designer Jakub Stokalski. "Among the new, console-specific UI changes we have an express menu for quick access to most common building actions, easy to use choice-wheels, top-down view for precise building placement, upscaled icons, and much more."
The Frostpunk: Console Edition will sell for $29.99 on October 11 for digital storefronts on PS4 and Xbox One, but a limited physical console release from Merge Games will arrive a week later in Europe, on October 18 for £29.99 or 34.99 Euros, and October 22 in the US at $34.99.
