11 bit studios just announced Frostpunk 2 earlier today. This is the sequel to the popular survival city-builder. This is the first project of three that 11 bit studios is reportedly working on.

In addition to today's announcement, the studio is allowing players who haven't yet played the first game to give it a go this weekend. From now through August 16th, players can download and play Frostpunk for free on Steam.

Frostpunk 2 will once again task players with leading a resource-hungry metropolis. To expand the city, you will need to search for new sources of power. Of course, there's a whole apocalypse that happened which makes this task pretty darn difficult. The sequel is said to be much bigger in scope compared to the original.

The original Frostpunk sold over 3 million copies and received a bunch of free post-launch content and three paid expansions after release.

You can add Frostpunk 2 to your wishlist on Steam, GOG, or the Epic Games Store.

After the age of coal, conquering Frostland for the oil extraction industry is expected to be the new salvation of what’s left of humanity. However, change does not come easily, and not everyone in this new multi-layered society will welcome this new direction.

With the ever-growing team responsible for the first game, which is now nearly 70 people strong, the sequel will bring a much bigger scope to the table. “We have more manpower available to focus on all aspects of the game from the scale, the production value, to the quality of UX. Our ambition is to do more than a straight-up sequel. What we aim to deliver to players is an experience that goes vastly beyond that of the original Frostpunk,” states Jakub Stokalski, Frostpunk 2 Co-Director.

Jakub also shares his grand vision for Frostpunk 2: “What players should expect is a wide universe of choices, freedom to shape the society and the city however they see fit - and reap the consequences. Frostpunk 2 builds on the conflicts of its predecessor - survival vs human values, life vs the arctic frost. But most importantly, it adds a new layer that is present in many aspects of the game - be it politics, be it society, be it technological progress - the conflict between humans and their nature”.
