On The Edge is the third and final expansion for Frostpunk. All expansions are available in Frostpunk: Season Pass which can be found HERE. "They say the snow is dead. But we've learnt to the contrary." - Samuel Robinson, Frostland Scout (1887, New London). ABOUT ON THE EDGE EXPANSION: Assigned as the leader of a newly formed Outpost — settled near the Army Warehouse — you are kept on New London's leash and bound to transfer all your precious findings to the headquarters. At the same time, you have to rely on scarce food deliveries and laws enforced by your supervisor. It's a delicate balance to navigate — each decision introduces new risks and hardships. But as soon the alternate food source is discovered by your scouts, you can start to think about surviving on your own… Snowy tides turn quickly on the Frostland. There are other Settlements out there willing to cooperate with you. Once you manage to gain their loyalty, designate trade routes between new allies, and regain control over your Book of Laws, then you can form a strong, independent union - and shake off New London's yoke. ON THE EDGE - FEATURES: New Frostland mechanics: Settlements and Safe Routes New Relations mechanics: Favours, Improvements, Trading, Diplomacy New Unit: Construction Team - used to build Trading Depots and Safe Routes 16 brand new areas on Frostland and new lore added to some of the old sites 3 new city structures and 7 new technologies A brand-new Setting in all Endless Mode variants: Settlements 25 minutes of new music (6 tracks) composed by Piotr Musiał Many smaller additions, improvements and fixes On The Edge gives you the opportunity to break free of the shackles New London has inflicted upon you and turn your ice-cold will back onto your masters.

On the Edge provides a tense new challenge and is the perfect reason to rediscover an exquisite city-building game.

On The Edge plays like the rest of Frostpunk, albeit with some caveats. I enjoyed playing with at least one hand tied behind my back, but I never felt in control of my outpost. Calling back to New London meant I had to wait for their new laws, or food deliveries, or whatever have you. I was merely a subset of their survival trial, and at that one, that didn't matter. However, I had fun. The environment and tech have some new stuff to use to your advantage, and you're not beholden to New London if you want to set out for yourself a bit in terms of scouting nearby locations for supplies and survivors.

As the final DLC of Frostpunk, On The Edge is solid but far from perfect especially compared with The Last Autumn.

7 / 10

On the Edge, the final Frostpunk DLC, offers one more challenging, and gripping strategy title that genre fans will love. When compared to The Last Autumn, it feels a bit limited in the things one can do when giving it a second try, and it's also not as original as you might have hoped, but it's still a solid recommendation to anyone who found the base game to be one of the best in its field.
