'This War of Mine' Update Adds New Starting Shelter, Character Selection and More

by Rainier on Dec. 17, 2014 @ 1:28 p.m. PST

This War Of Mine provides an experience of war seen from an entirely new angle. You do not play as an elite soldier but as a group of civilians trying to survive in a besieged city.

This War of Mine is a dark survival game where you control a group of civilians trying to stay alive in a besieged city.

Your task is simple: survive.

The pace of the game 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: crafting, trading and taking care of 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.

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

This War of Mine, has been updated to version 1.2, and the update includes a couple of big changes.

The first big thing is a brand new shelter. From now on, each time you begin your story, you'll have a chance to start in this new building.

The second new feature is the ability to choose your starting group of characters. You will have bigger influence on shaping the story of civilians in war, making it more challenging or putting the game into a totally new perspective. Please keep in mind that you have to play at least once to unlock this option. 

Additional improvements and tweaks:

  • Some locations were enhanced 
  • Some animations were improved 
  • NPC behaviors were improved
  • bug fixes
