The beta version is available to the players who have preordered the Deluxe edition of the game the duration of this beta testing is from April 15th to April 22 at 1:00 PM ET.

In this post, we will explore everything we know about ‘Frostpunk 2‘, from its storyline, to gameplay mechanics. 

How to Download FrostPunk 2 Beta?

Players can download the Frost Punk 2 beta version by pre-ordering the Deluxe version of the game which is available on Steam.

If you preorder the deluxe version of the game it provides you some extra features including access to the beta, three post-launch DLCs, three days early release, a digital artbook and soundtrack, an exclusive in-game item, and a digital version of the “Warm Flesh” novella.

In the recent gameplay deep drive video on the 11-bit YouTube channel, co-directors of Frostpunk 2 Jacob Stokalski and Lucas Juszczyk turn off the curtain from the gameplay of Frost Punk 2.

To hype up the gameplay reveal co-director Stokalski said,

“By the end of the first game, you survived the end of the world, The question then becomes, ‘What now?’.”

Unlike the first game where you can only build a single building at a time, in FrostPunk 2 players can build out entire districts which is one of the key features of this edition.

One of the other new features includes the creation of a council where different communities within the city can put up their issues and vote on the laws of the land. Which can lead to various conflicts in your city

As we told earlier in Frostpank you can build entire city districts and various communities within the city can vote according to the land laws.

That means the game is heavily dependent on decision-making and choices you make for the city as various community brings different opinions and choices according to their benefit. If you favor one over another it may trigger communal Conflicts.

Because the unity the city required for the apocalypse is gone now there is only thing that matters is self and communal development. Communities will try to manipulate the way you lead the city.
