Is Frostpunk 2 on Game Pass?

Frostpunk 2 will be available on Game Pass on PC from day one. This was confirmed during the first official gameplay trailer, but was reconfirmed along with the release date during the Xbox Partner Preview stream in March 2024. Frostpunk 2 will also be available on Xbox Series X|S Game Pass when the console version of the game is released.

As for the gameplay itself, you’re not conquering worlds and forging huge new societies. Instead, you’re deciding how many people should be sent to collect wood, who gets the last of the food rations, and whether you have the resources available to build a makeshift tent for one starving family. It’s equal parts brutal and beautiful.

While you can play it from day one on PC Game Pass, Frostpunk 2 also has a beta running in April for seven days which you can access by preordering the game. You’ll be able to do so on Steam – where it is currently the fifth most wishlisted game – as well as the Windows Store, Epic Games Store, and GOG. Preordering will also give you early access 72 hours before the game’s release.

While you wait for the arrival of Frostpunk 2,here are some management games to allow you to get some practice in, as well as a list of must-have upcoming PC games releasing in 2024 and beyond.
