This War of Mine Celebrates Its Fifth Anniversary With Final Cut Update and New Content

In celebration of its fifth anniversary, This War of Mine: Final Cut brings a number of content updates and features to the acclaimed title.

Five years on from its original release back in 2014, 11 bit studios’ This War of Mine has still left a mark thanks to its harrowing stories and challenging gameplay, and the studio is aiming to recognize its accomplishments with a brand new update to thank its community, five years later.

In celebration of the game’s five-year anniversary this week, developer 11 bit studios has released a new update for This War of Mine called the “Final Cut” update. Specifically, this update (which is free to all owners of the game on Steam) provides new content in the form of a new character, new scenario, and other events and quests from the “Stories” DLC integrated into the main game.

In addition to the content updates, This War of Mine: Final Cut also features new visual enhancements such as 4K UI adjustments, support for 21:9 display monitors, and remastered iterations of classic levels from the original game. 11 bit also clarified that for those that want to play through the original game untouched, the “Final Cut” iteration of the game will also feature the ability to play through the “vanilla” version of the game from when it was first released.
