11 bit studios actually will put the latest This War of Mine DLC on Linux

Posted by , | Views: 4,157

As an update to the previous article where 11 bit studios told me they didn't have the resources for Linux, turns out they will be putting the latest This War of Mine DLC on Linux after-all.

Oh, how I do love a bit of good news. This War of Mine: Stories - The Last Broadcast released today for Windows, buried at the bottom of their release announcement was this note:

Note: the Mac + Linux versions, modding and game controller support for the DLC are coming soon. Give us few days - it should all come in one, nice patch. Sorry for the delay.

Great stuff. Delays happen, that's just part of game development. It's good to get a clear message (and a little apology there) from 11 bit studios on this!

It will include 7 remastered locations, 4 new locations, new shelter, new playable characters, new radio mechanics, new investigating and reporting mechanics, new dilemmas mechanics and a non-linear story with 6 different endings. It honestly looks and sounds pretty good!

This DLC marks the 4th anniversary of This War of Mine, seems like 11 bit studios have done well with it overall. As dark as it is, I still quite enjoyed the original game.

If you're looking to pick up a copy of the DLC or the game itself, you can do so on Humble Store, GOG or Steam.

This is most excellent news! Steam says I've played this game for 34 hours so far, including the first episode of the season pass, so I was quite a bit worried they were leaving Linux behind. It's not even about the money - I've already gotten way more than my money's worth out of This War of Mine - I just don't want to miss out on the stories.

This War Of Mine is boring as shit, it's just a grind, after you understand how the game works, it's just a loop of doing the same thing(s) over and over and over until you get bored and quit.

Don't understand the weird hype surrounding it, I mean it was a cool concept and all but not that well executed.

Well, I bought the base game after this. I can't open it, crashes immediately. Any solutions as of now?

Awesome! Now I consider buying the DLCs. I only got the base game currently.

On my first night out...
I stumbled into the house of an elderly couple. They begged me not to take their medicine, only some food if I needed to. I took the food and left them the medicine they needed to survive.

Some nights later...
I came back and took everything. We needed it to survive.

I never came back to see what happened to the elderly couple.

This is one of the very few decisions I remember that well in my gaming history.

That's some great news and I'll gladly stash myself with all DLCs for this game. I played through the most of the base content and I would like to give it a try again now that more content is available
