DLC in gaming has often been a controversial subject, with many from the gaming community accusing developers of segmenting content to nickel-and-dime players with Day One DLC, Season Passes, and others – in the case of developer 11-bit Studios though, the company is looking to utilize it as a tool for a good cause.

11-bit Studios released new DLC this week for its recently-released and highly-praised survival simulation game, This War of Mine, with the game’s Steam page listing brand new sets of DLC in a variety of packs that add new cosmetic items into the game, while also supporting charity.

Titled the “War Child Charity DLC,” the new content provides a variety of in-game street art created by artists such as M-City, SeaCreative, Emir Cerimovic, and more that provide unique art to adorn the in-game city’s walls and war-torn buildings. In addition to the unique street art that the content provides, all proceeds from purchases of the content will be donated to the charity organization War Child, which seeks to help children and families struggling in areas affected by war and violent conflicts.

Players can purchase the content for either $0.99, $9.99, or $19.99 through the game’s Steam page, with developer 11-bit Studios thanking its supporters and urging to “please don’t give up on trying to make this world a better place.”

This War of Mine is currently available on PC, Mac, and Linux.
