Today, HYPERSTRANGE and Paranoid Interactive invite you to the Frozen North in the time of legends! Frozenheim launched in Steam Early access one year ago, and players fell in love with the beautiful and serene Norse city builder. As the developer prepares for the full release on June 16, one last Early Access update hits Steam today. Become an Earl worthy of the Viking Sagas and make Odin proud!
Over the course of its Early Access year, Paranoid Interactive’s debut title, Frozenheim, gained much popularity with Steam players. As it developed from a small, 3-people project to a fully-fledged, multi-faceted strategy epic, the game sold nearly 200,000 copies. Following the Early Access launch under the indie publishing label, Hyperstrange, the development team grew four times in size to be able to meet the expectations of the game’s fast-growing community.
The eighth and final Early Access update, moving the game up to version 0.9, adds a third story campaign. Its four missions focus their narrative around Thorstein, the hero of the Bear Clan, and make up for the total of sixteen scenarios available in the game. The multi-player segment receives its long-awaited matchmaking feature, and siege weapons make their way into the northland battlefields.
The full 1.0 release, slated for Thor’s Day, June 16, will not only bring about the finishing touches to the game’s visuals and gameplay but will also introduce the fourth story campaign and a conclusion to the entire Frozenheim legend. The game’s price will increase slightly to $19.99 (16.99€) before the full launch, but the players can expect a release-week discount on Steam, GOG, and Humble Store.
