About This War of Mine

About this game

All stories must come to an end... See what life is like living as a civilian in wartorn times in a thrilling atmospheric Indie with your This War of Mine Steam PC key.

As part of the 5th anniversary of the original release, 11 bit studios proudly presents you with This War of Mine: Final Cut - a FREE update with new content and major changes, all the updates and free expansions released so far, and expands all scenarios with the locations known from the This War of Mine: Stories DLC.

WAR RAGES ON
In This War Of Mine, you do not play as an elite soldier, but rather a group of civilians trying to survive in a besieged city - struggling with lack of food, medicine and constant danger from snipers and hostile scavengers. The game provides an experience of war seen from an entirely new angle.

DAY-NIGHT CYCLE ADDS SUSPENSE
The pace of This War of Mine is imposed by the day and night cycle. During the day, snipers outside stop you from leaving your refuge, so you need to focus on maintaining your hideout by crafting, trading and taking care of your survivors.

At night, take one of your civilians on a mission to scavenge through a set of unique locations for items that will help you stay alive.

WHO WILL SURVIVE?
Make life-and-death decisions driven by your conscience. Try to protect everybody from your shelter or sacrifice some of them for longer-term survival. During war, there are no good or bad decisions; there is only survival. The sooner you realize that, the better.

THE FINAL CUT
This War of Mine: Final Cut is a conclusive, remastered edition of the game that contains all the updates and free expansions released so far and introduces not only a new scenario but also expands all scenarios with the locations known from Stories DLCs - even if you don’t own those. In short words - that means you can now experience lots of never-seen-before playthroughs and struggle with new challenges.

Major changes and new content includes:

  • New main menu.
  • 4k UI adjustments.
  • A brand-new character.
  • 64bit and 32bit version.
  • One new classic scenario.
  • 21:9 aspect ratio support.
  • Vanilla version of the game option.
  • additional smaller bugfixes and tweaks.
  • New quests and Events on Stories locations.
  • Remastered versions of all the classic locations.
  • All locations from TWoM Stories added to the original game.

YOUR OFFICIAL THIS WAR OF MINE STEAM PC KEY GIVES YOU:

  • Inspired by real-life events.
  • Control your survivors and manage your shelter.
  • Charcoal-stylized aesthetics to complement the game's theme.
  • Randomized world and characters every time you start a new game.
  • Craft weapons, alcohol, beds or stoves – anything that helps you survive.
  • Make decisions - an often unforgiving and emotionally difficult experience.

 

 

Please note: To launch the 'vanilla' version of This War is Mine, right-click on the game in your Steam Library - then go to Properties and click Betas. From the drop-down list, choose vanilla - This War of Mine: Original Release 1.0, then close the window and update the game.

    Good perspective on war with great ethical conundrums. Good to discuss with students.

    This product has a fantastic premise. This is a war game from the perspective of the civilians, who have to survive their worlds being broken by people killing each other. This game is very good to use with students, especially in a history of social sciences class, so students can have a glimpse of what it means to live in a wartorn place, and all the ethical choices they have to make on a daily basis.

    One of my favourite game ever. Atmosphere is on point and really lets you sink in this terrible world. Challenging in many ways and can be frustrating when not careful but it will leave you asking for more. Great game, great music.

    Sims in a Warzone The game has its mechanics but unlike most other games, it pushes the player to think of the game more like a real war with a realistic view rather than a game where you keep looting and try to build the best shelter. As a gamer who leaves all their empathy skills behind the monitor and who can sell her wife for internet connection while playing, I was unsuccessful countless times. If you want to play, consider this before doing so.

    An intense and alternate take of the War genre.

    An intense and alternate take of the War genre. A game that shows you the civilian's side of war and let's you play with survivors scavenging and looting, trying to suvive in the warzone while also trying to maintain their human side and their emotions in check. If you like suvival games, this is a must place.

    This War of Mine Review

    Sam Jones
    Staff Review
    Big decisions must be made, and they can often have a huge impact on the characters in your group and the way in which you survive. This War of Mine takes strong strategy elements and puts them in an artistic, emotional setting where survival is everything.
