The This War of Mine: Stories - Fading Embers release date has been announced by 11 bit studios. This upcoming piece of DLC and third entry for the game's Season Pass will put players into a brand-new scenario that is as emotionally tumultuous as it gets. Our heroine has a simple question to answer: is it more important to survive or to allow the legacy of mankind to carry on?

If you happen to be unfamiliar with this game, This War of Mine is a 2D survival game set in a warzone. It's a "war game", alright, but one of a very different sort — rather than play as soldiers or their commander, you take on the role of civilians doing their best to try and survive in the middle of a warzone. You'll have to scavenge supplies, build furniture, and protect what little you have from scavengers, bandits, hostile soldiers, and many more threats. It's performed pretty well in the last four-and-a-half years, selling 4.5 million copies since it first came out.

A news post on the game's Steam Community page states that Fading Embers is the next piece of DLC to arrive for this game that first debuted in November of 2014. It's sure to be a heartbreaking, depressing tale, and you'll be able to check it out for yourself soon enough: the This War of Mine: Stories - Fading Embers release date is August 6, 2019.

This newest bit of DLC has players taking on the role of Anja, a woman who is (perhaps unsurprisingly) trying to live in the middle of a warzone. The central premise of this story is to decide whether it's more important to preserve the great works of man or the actual lives of people. You'll be faced with some tough decisions as always and you'll have your choice of multiple endings.

You'll be able to pick up Fading Embers on August 6, 2019, at a price of $3.99 or your regional equivalent. If you don't yet already own This War of Mine, you can get it for free at the Epic Games Store right now. You can also check out the Official Teaser for this DLC below.

If you'd prefer to get this game on another platform, you can grab it at Green Man Gaming right now for $6.00, a 70% discount off of its regular price. You can also pick it up on Steam, the Humble Store, GOG, and Fanatical at its regular price. Console gamers can get the Complete Edition on sale at the eShop for Nintendo Switch at a price of $19.99 or "The Little Ones" Edition for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at the same price point, and mobile gamers can get it at iTunes for $14.99 or Google Play for $13.99 for iOS and Android, respectively.
