  1. It’s a brand new scenario! Is it really free? Why?
    • Yes, it is totally free. Because we love you.
  2. Wait a second. This scenario was called “Builders” before! What’s up with that?!
    • Good that you are so observant! But the situation is pretty simple – “Builders” was more of a code name, we didn’t want to spoil too much by revealing the title too soon.
  3. What about the future updates? When are they going to arrive?
    • Next big update is the long awaited and highly requested Endurance Mode! It’s going to be available for this year. For free, of course.
  4. Are you guys still working on This War of Mine – Stories DLCs?
    • It’s not exactly a Frostpunk-related question but yes – we are still totally working on TWOM DLCs. A separate team is responsible for that – so you don’t have to worry that Frostpunk updates are somehow interfering with TWOM updates. We’re going to announce new stuff as soon as we’re ready. But you are smart and you already know how we work, right? 😉
