Frostpunk might be grim, bleak, and responsible for turning Julian into a ruthless dictator (see our review below), but it’s also very popular. Developers 11 bit Studios have just announced that the game has already sold 250,000 copies.
As promised, here’s our Frostpunk PC review.
It took 11 bit, who developed the also grim and bleak This War of Mine, just 66 hours, or slightly more than two and a half days, to reach the milestone. The upshot of that is that we’ll definitely be seeing more of the game in future. In a brief statement on Twitter, the company’s CEO, Grzegorz Miechowski said “Yes, we had plans for the expansions and now we’re 100% sure we are doing that.” Miechowski also said there would be free updates to the game going forward.
#Frostpunk sold 250k units in the first 66 hours! Thank you for supporting us, we love you all!

Exactly what those expansions and updates will be isn’t clear, of course, but we can take a reasonably good guess. Expect to see at least a couple of new major campaign missions, but I’d also like to see a few more of the challenging scenarios. Either way, expect to see plenty more people freeze to death in the barren wastes, like that other timeJulian played Frostpunk and forgot to turn the heater on.
