Developer SpaceRocket Games and publisher Toplitz Productions announce Permafrost, an exciting new addition to the survival game genre and one with a chilling narrative; Permafrost thrusts players into a bleak, open-world urban landscape where survival is not just a choice—it’s a necessity.

In the wake of the cataclysmic ‘shattering’, an apocalyptic moon phase phenomenon, humanity finds itself teetering on the brink of extinction as the world succumbs to an eternal deep freeze. The game reveals the collapse of existing political and economic structures and the deadly winter cold that has resulted in the deaths of billions of people.

As a survivor, adaptability is key. Brave the bone-chilling sub-zero temperatures which will have an effect on character capabilities, hunt elusive prey, and repurpose salvaged machinery to craft the tools needed for survival. But beware, for in this frozen wasteland, danger lurks at every turn—from hostile factions vying for control to the ever-present threat of natural predators.

Players of Permafrost have the opportunity to prevent the further extinction of humanity by building a shelter and establishing peace for the scattered communities that survive.

They will have the freedom to forge their own path, whether it’s banding together to rebuild society or carving out a place for themselves in the unforgiving wilderness. Construct intricate shelters from scrap, cultivate crops to stave off hunger, and harness the power of technology to fend off threats both human and environmental. Navigating the frozen remnants of civilization with vehicles and on foot plays a huge part in exploration and discovery as players strive for survival.

It’s not just the brutal elements that are a threat, in Permafrost players will use deadly combat to defend against threats using primitive weapons or firearms, whether facing hostile enemies or natural predators in this relentless battle for survival.

“At Toplitz Productions, we are increasing our presence in the survival genre with both, crossover titles like Medieval Dynasty and Sengoku Dynasty as well as hardcore titles like Serum. Teaming up with the skilled developers at SpaceRocket Games is the next step in this journey. Together we are thrilled to unveil „Permafrost“ – our newest venture in the survival segment – a title that combines a modern post-apocalyptic setting with intricate resource management and deep survival mechanics, promising players an immersive and dynamic gaming experience.” said Matthias Wuensche, CEO of Toplitz Productions.

Permafrost will provide both single player and co-op play for up to 4 players and is scheduled to launch on Steam early access in 2025 on PC.

An eternal winter is coming.
