The bestselling antiwar game This War of Mine is coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X next week.
In This War of Mine, players take on the role of civilians in a besieged city to experience war-torn reality from a down-to-earth perspective. This updated version of the game features updated 4K visuals and UI adjustments for next-gen consoles.
11 Bit Studios CEO Przemek Marszal notes that the timing of the release is particularly relevant right now:
The message and themes existing inside of This War of Mine have, unfortunately, become brutally vivid and relevant in recent months. We believe it’s especially important to educate people on the realities of war right now, while its horrifying reality has become a daily struggle for people that are close to us. We’re proud that recent This War of Mine fundraising helped us create a wave of spontaneous help for war victims in Ukraine, and we hope we can further spread our antiwar message with This War of Mine: Final Cut.
Apart from the newly updated graphics — which help the sketched, raw aesthetics resonate more than ever — the Final Cut package also contains all locations from both the base game and This War of Mine: Stories, new quests and events, one new classic scenario, and a brand-new character.
This War of Mine: Stories, comprised of three narrative-focused DLC episodes, will be also available on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 separately or in one package. This War of Mine: Complete Edition bundles the base game with all of the Stories DLC.
This War of Mine: Final Cut launches on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Game Pass on May 10.
