Update 1.3.3 | Photo Mode added + Mac version incoming!

Hello there, Citizens!

Hear me, hear me! After months of waiting, and hundreds of emails asking about it, we are excited to finally deliver the good news — Frostpunk’s frigid survival landscapes will be released worldwide on Mac OS this coming February 13, 2019, for the price of $29.99 / €32.99.

While we’ve put a lot of work into bringing the game to a new platform, it doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten about our friends and fans on PC! Releasing today, patch update 1.3.3 brings the much desired Photo Mode to Frostpunk’s icy world alongside a lot of new additions to the game.

Allowing players to document their triumph over the endless winter and show it to their friends, the new photo mode tool has everything players need to take stunning photos of their city. Including a number of graphics effects and filters, players can transform their photos into a picture-perfect postcard of the post-apocalypse! What’s more, from now on the weather in Endless Mode will be randomized, making each playthrough a wholly unique experience.

A Photo Mode lets you:

  • Add some vignette and monochrome effects
  • Add soot and ice effects
  • Enable an ornamental frame
  • Add Frostpunk’s logo and additional caption
  • Zoom in and out more than it is possible during gameplay

List of features:

  • Photo Mode added
  • New languages added: Italian, Japanese and Korean
  • New building: Large Resource Depot
  • Randomized weather in Endless Mode
  • A new look of Resource Depots
  • Christmas Carol story is no longer available
  • Other minor fixes and improvements

Fixes and smaller changes:

  • Some translation fixes for all languages
  • Fixed bug with levitating site markers
  • Added missing texts after loading saves from 1.0.1 version
  • Some translation fixes for the Chinese language
  • Changed text formatting for the Chinese language
  • Fixed lightning issues
  • Additional minor fixes and optimizations
  • Smaller changes and balancing

We can’t wait to see your awesome screenshots, Citizens!

HOTFIXES to Update 1.3.3  

Sometimes, when our engineers are tinkering with the Generator – things go *Boom!*. But thanks to your commitment and feedback we are usually able to track down many issues quickly – and solve them as soon as we can! Thanks for being vigilant, Citizens!

The biggest issue that you’ve reported and we decided to give it the highest priority is the Blocked Buildings Bug™. This whole thing was correlated to the save files. Luckily, we have been able to address the problem. Here is a breakdown of how things are working:

  • Saves from version 1.3.2 or earlier on which no storm has been triggered yet: your game will progress in a normal manner, the bug will not be present at all;
  • Save from version 1.3.3 created during a storm: the bug will not be present after the hotfix has been applied, you can just carry on;
  • Save from version 1.3.3 created after the storm (Beacon, Hothouse, Hunter’s hut, etc. are inoperable): the normal operation of the facilities is going to be restored after next storm passes. In other words, you just need to survive
