How to Get a Steam Core in Frostpunk
Frostpunk is a tough challenge for fans of city builders. It’s harsh in its aesthetic and even harsher in the choices it gives players. But at least it looks cool, right? The steampunk in it is surely a good draw for people. Well, let’s talk about steam cores, the important resource you’re going to need a lot in the game.
Steam Cores are tricky because you won’t be able to make them even though they sound like they’re technology. They’re a lot like wood, steel, and coal in that regard. You’ll need to either find them out in the wild using expeditions (usually tied to main story missions), or you’ll need to be lucky and have a deposit that lets you rummage through it for one. There’s really no other way to get this valuable little thing.
You’ll need them to build pretty much every important, advanced thing within the game, so don’t go spending them all willy nilly. You’ll need to choose wisely or you’ll find yourself sacrificing a coal mine for an automaton. This might sound like a fair trade, but not when your colony’s freezing! Keep your reserves in mind always.
That’s all there is to steam cores in Frostpunk! If you need any more help with the game, let us know in the comments below.
