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

Posted by , | Views: 5,573

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.

CestarianThis 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.

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.

I guess we must not have been playing the same game, because all I remember were empty houses and houses with guards/soldiers in them. I played for 2 hours and felt like I'd seen the entire game, never came across anything like this tbh.

These moral dilemmas and the helpless feeling were the most important part of the game for me. (I'm not into survival and crafting usually.) Some moral dilemmas might also knock on the door. According to Liam, they are adding more of this.

OLucasZanellaWell, I bought the base game after this. I can't open it, crashes immediately. Any solutions as of now?
Did you try my fix? https://steamcommunity.com/app/282070/discussions/0/1735469327933261052/#c1735469327933402191
Seems promising, but I can't understand even half of it. Would you mind noobifying it?

Edit: I guess I understand all but how to set Steam to launch from it.

Yes, I haven't invested that many hours, but I remember similar disturbing situations. Playing this game should be mandatory for everyone to get an understanding what war actually means.

They have just added the Linux and Mac support. 2 hours ago, to be precise.
