War Has Changed

11 bit studios have released a free content update for the PC versions of survival sim This War Of Mine. The Final Cut Update is intended to celebrate the game's fifth anniversary and adds some new content including characters, scenarios, and more. It'll be the final content update for This War Of Mine.

The new character's name is Livia. She's a pregnant woman who also abstains from alcohol and drugs. Livia's partner Petr died during the outbreak of the war, leaving her to raise the child by herself. She'll also take part in the game's new scenario, which you can play now if you download the update. In addition to Livia and her new scenario, the Final Cut Update also adds all locations from This War Of Mine's Stories DLC packs, even if you don't own those packs. This isn't the DLC itself, but rather the locations from the DLC being added to the base game's existing scenarios.

 

It's not just extra content though. This War Of Mine's Final Cut Update also adds 4K UI adjustments and remastered visuals for the game's classic levels. You'll also be able to play the game on ultrawide 21:9 monitors now. If you don't like all this new stuff and you want to play the original This War Of Mine, you can do so; 11-bit studios are allowing you to play the vanilla version of the game as it appeared back in 2014. You can read the full list of additions the Final Cut Update brings right here.

Although this is the final content update, 11 bit will still be supporting This War Of Mine with technical fixes and bug squashes. The Final Cut Update is free to everyone who owns the game on PC. This War Of Mine is available on PC via Steam and GOG. You can also grab the game on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

Dark Souls changed my life, and I'm here to spread the good news. I like pretty much all sorts of games, but I judge everything by its proximity to our Lord and saviour, Dark Souls.
