Get Frostpunk (Steam) For Just $10 Ahead Of Its New Expansion Out This Week

Frostpunk's new On The Edge expansion releases on Thursday, and you can snag the base game for cheap ahead of its launch.


Frostpunk is one of the best strategy games to come out in years, and it's received some great support in the form of expansions. The third and final expansion, On The Edge, is slated for release this Thursday, August 20, and if you want to get into the post-apocalyptic strategy game ahead of its launch, then you can snag the Steam version at a great price. Frostpunk is only $10 (was $30) on Fanatical with promo code GAMESPOT. This deal is only valid until August 20 at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET.

This promo code stacks with the game's current discount, bringing its $12 sale price down to $10. All you have to do to claim this extra deal is add Frostpunk to your cart, apply promo code GAMESPOT, and then check out. Once your order is complete, you can then redeem your Frostpunk code on Steam and start playing. Frostpunk's season pass and Game of the Year edition are also discounted. The latter includes both the base game and season pass.

GameSpot's Frostpunk review scored the game a 9/10 for its great aesthetic that helps reinforce the themes of its frozen-wasteland dystopia. Frostpunk features gut-wrenching decisions, and challenging gameplay that forces you to balance your short-term goals and overall long-term plan.

"Frostpunk is among the best overall takes on the survival city builder to date," critic Daniel Starkey wrote. "Its theming and consistency create a powerful narrative through line that binds your actions around the struggle to hold onto humanity in uncertain times. Hope is a qualified good, but you may not always be strong enough (or clever enough) to shelter that flame from the cold."
