Black Friday is almost over here in the UK, but the deals train is still going strong for all you folk over in the US.

Frostpunk - (Dominic Tarason)

The inhospitable icy wastes of Frostpunk don’t look so bad if you’ve picked Serenity, one of two routes to take through new free Endless Mode DLC. According to 11 Bit’s video dev diary (which you can find below along with a launch trailer), Endless Mode took longer to develop because they got a little carried away on the new content front. There are four different maps to pick from, determining how free you are to expand your icepocalyptic city outwards, and players can pick between two styles of play as they build without the threat of a looming, story-ending disaster.



UPDATE 21ST NOVEMBER: The Endless Modes is live! It's free, remember, and comes in a patch with additional Frostpunk fixes.

"We've put a lot of effort to deliver you this mode," wrote developer 11 bit Studios. "We hope you're going to enjoy it immensely! Also, we tried to test both modes as thoroughly as possible - but being a really big piece of content that you can play, well, endlessly, some non-standard issues may occur in the late game. Worry not, though, 'cause our brave QA guys are always waiting for your feedback at! Don't hesitate to contact us about any bugs/crashes."

ORIGINAL STORY 19TH NOVEMBER: Frostpunk is a fine, fine game. An exquisitely wrought city-builder in which you cling to survival through apocalyptically cold temperatures. It's thrilling, and if you can hold on through the colossal storm, you win. But your campaign ends there - you can play no longer.
