Almost eight years after its release, This War of Mine remains a game with a powerful, pacifist message. 11 bit has announced that this message has now reached more than 7 million players around the world. This comes prior to the release of This War of Mine: Final Cut on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5.

This War of Mine: Final Cut serves as the most polished This War of Mine experience released on consoles. It’s the sum of numerous patches, tweaks, balancing, AI improvements, control scheme updates, and stability that have been implemented since launching on the previous generation of hardware. This War of Mine: Final Cut contains all additional content provided in two major updates: Anniversary Edition and Final Cut.

Anniversary Edition includes three new locations, new NPC civilians, a new scenario, a new playable character, and more achievements. The Final Cut update comes with 4K visuals, UI adjustments, and remastered locations with new quests and events.

For those who already own the base game, the This War of Mine: All Expansions Pack release adds all the new content. The Little Ones DLC, which adds children to the survivor groups, and three narrative-focused StoriesFather’s Promise, The Last Broadcast, and Fading Embers each introduce new locations and mechanics. This is in addition to stories touching upon different moral and cultural aspects of wartime survival. The Last Broadcast was written by Meg Jayanth, writer of 80 Days.

“It’s no surprise that This War of Mine is one of our company’s crowning achievements. We put a lot of care into it, and the game has changed a ton in the time since console owners first had a chance to immerse themselves into these civilian struggles. We’ve improved on every aspect of the original, and now, with the potential of new hardware at our disposal, we’re proud that we’re able to present a perfected version of our bestselling gem.”

Bartek Gwardiak, Lead Producer at 11 bit studios

The game is also available in This War of Mine: Complete Edition which bundles the base game with all four DLCs. This War of Mine: Final Cut is available now on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. It is also included as part of Xbox Game Pass.
