Survival game This War of Mine got a free update on PC today to celebrate the game’s five year anniversary. The update adds “a new character, new classic scenario, and more quests and events on the locations known from Stories episode,” as well as graphical overhauls.
The third episode for This War of Mine’s Stories DLC drops on August 6. Called Fading Embers, it’ll follow the story of Anja as she’s faced with decisions about saving people or the things they’ve created featuring non-linear gameplay and multiple endings. The game is currently free on the Epic Game Store.
This War of Mine: Stories—Father’s Promise is out today on PC. It’s the first of a planned ‘season’ of story-oriented DLC for This War of Mine.
The next game from the creators This War Of Mine is Frostpunk, a game about steam-powered survival on a frozen world. Slated for PC next year. Scant details. Devs 11Bit say the game “utilizes strategy & management elements [but] revolves around empathy & devision-making rather than optimization & resource management.”
