This War of Mine is about to see the release of its second Stories DLC; The Last Broadcast. The new episode will launch on November 14, 2018, to mark the 4th anniversary of the original release of the game.
After the first episode, Father’s Promise, when 11 bit studios joined forces with exceptionally talented game writer Meg Jayanth, most known for 80 Days (IGF winner for Excellence in Narrative), a new story for This War of Mine was born.
Throughout development, this story grew much broader in scope when compared to Father’s Promise. Tomasz Kisilewicz, Project Lead, says:
“Surely it took us a while, but the focus was on delivering a deeply emotional story. The leading theme circles around the price of telling the truth.
In this addition, we’re introducing a lot of new content with different endings, new gameplay mechanics, new moral dilemmas about telling the truth that influence the world, new playable civilians, a new shelter people can live in, and new sites of the city of Pogoren to visit. It had to be at least as good as the other stories you can find in This War of Mine. For this reason, after we received the scenario from Meg we iterated on the episode an enormous amount of times afterward. We had to make sure that in the end, the community would have a story they expect from us and we couldn’t let them down. And now that The Last Broadcast is releasing, I’d like to say ‘enjoy The Last Broadcast’, but perhaps the better wording is actually ‘experience The Last Broadcast’.”
The Last Broadcast will be released on November 14th on Steam, GOG.com, the Humble Store, and anywhere else quality games are sold digitally. It is included in the season pass, which will see a price increase soon, so grab it now!
