When is the Frostpunk Mobile Alpha?

The regional alpha for Frostpunk Mobile is here.

Frostpunk is a game all about balancing prosperity versus suffering in an extremely hostile environment. You need to be constantly on top of everything your people want and need, and whether those wants and needs are sustainable in a frigid wasteland. It’s kind of an intense game, perhaps too intense to play anywhere besides a PC, but if you’re looking for some existential suffering on the go, you may be interested in Frostpunk’s upcoming mobile version. On that note, when is the Frostpunk Mobile alpha?

Frostpunk Mobile is, obviously, a mobile version of Frostpunk that’s been completely rebuilt from the ground up to properly facilitate easy mobile gameplay. The developers are currently in the alpha stage of the game’s development and are inviting players to join in and try it out ahead of the full release. 

When is the Frostpunk Mobile Alpha?

Now, we’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is that the Frostpunk Mobile alpha began today, April 20th. The bad news is that it’s not an open alpha, but rather a regional alpha. This means that only users in certain territories can download the alpha build. Those territories are:

  • Australia
  • New Zeland
  • The Philippines

If you don’t live in these territories and don’t have access to a VPN to switch your IP address to those regions, you can’t download the alpha. Additionally, the alpha build is only available on the Google Play Store for Android mobile devices, so iOS devices like iPhones are a nonstarter.

If you are one of the lucky Android users in one of those regions, you can visit the Google Play Store now and download the alpha version of Frostpunk Mobile for free. Just a heads up, in-app purchases are enabled in the alpha build, and any purchases you make will be carried over to the full game when it releases.
