This War of Mine is coming to Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5. 11 bit studios recently confirmed a release date of 10th May, 2022. And now this newly overhauled version, named This War of Mine: Final Cut, has also been confirmed for a day one launch on Xbox Game Pass.
The bestselling antiwar game sees players take on the role of civilians in a besieged city. They will experience war-torn reality from a down-to-earth perspective. You will struggle 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.
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. Crafting, trading and taking care of your survivors. At night, embark on a mission to scavenge through 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 for longer-term survival. During war, there are no good or bad decisions; there is only survival.
“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.”Przemek Marszal, 11 bit studios CEO
Apart from the newly updated 4K visuals and UI adjustments, which help the sketched, raw aesthetics resonate more than ever, This War of Mine: Final Cut 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.
The new edition, This War of Mine: Final Cut will come to Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 on 10th May, 2022. Xbox Game Pass subscribers will get access to the game immediately at launch.
