11 Bit Studios recently announced that its upcoming post-apocalypse city-building game sequel, Frostpunk 2, would launch for the PC on July 25. However, people who pre-order the Deluxe version of the game now will get a chance to check out a beta test from April 15-22.

More info on the beta test can be found on the game's Steam page. It mentions that the beta test will include a "part of the sandbox mode called the Utopia Builder Preview." It also says the beta will only be available in English and in Simplified Chinese, with the other supported languages available when the full game launches.

In another Steam post, you can check out the PC hardware requirements for the beta version:
