Manchester, UK, September 13, 2019 — Indie game publisher Merge Games is excited to announce it’s bringing Signature Edition versions of 11 Bit Studios' Bafta-nominated society survival game, Frostpunk, to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in October 2019.

Adapted for consoles with revised controls and adjusted mechanics, Frostpunk: Console Edition enables you to fully test your tactical prowess on the frozen wastelands.

Offering players a complex, strategic challenge alongside a rich narrative featuring an alternative take on the 19th century industrial revolution, Frostpunk tells the story of how our planet mysteriously freezes, putting an end to civilization as we know it and forcing the human race to adapt to harsh conditions.

As the leader of possibly the last civilised society on Earth, you’re going to build the city that your survivors live in, discover new technologies, explore frozen wastelands and most importantly, manage and rule society to prepare it for life in an unforgiving world. Whether you’re an enlightened ruler or an iron-fisted tyrant, you’ll discover that choices in this world aren’t as easy as they seem, and that holding power over people has a cost as heavy as the responsibility you feel in caring for them.

The Signature Edition includes:

  • Region free copy of Frostpunk
  • Hardcover artbook
  • CD soundtrack
  • 'Order' enamel pin
  • 'Faith' enamel pin
  • Digitally printed signed artwork
  • Frostpunk is a society survival game where heat means life, and every decision comes at a price. Presenting complex strategic gameplay, demanding challenges and a rich story, Frostpunk is extending its unmatched survival experience to consoles.
Pre-orders for Frostpunk are open now directly from Signature Edition (

The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Signature Edition versions of Frostpunk are scheduled to ship at the end of October 2019 and are priced £39.99/ $44.99/ €44.99.
