11 bit studios have released DLC for the critically acclaimed This War of Mine that does two wonderful things.
The first is partnering with some of the stars of the street art world. M-City, Gabriel “Specter” Reese, SeaCreative, Emir Cerimovic, Fauxreel, and Mateusz Waluś have all chipped in original artwork. These pieces of art centred around the core themes of the game itself – the human condition and state of humanity during war – will be found dotted throughout the locations of This War of Mine, creating a “unique in-game gallery” for players.
The second is giving 100% of the money earned from the DLC’s sale to War Child, a UK-based charity that helps children suffering from conflicts and war all across the globe. They’ve even won a BRIT Award!
So if you’re feeling charitable and own This War of Mine, you can head over to DLC’s store page on Steam where it can be purchased at three tiers of pricing: £0.79, £6.99, and £14.99 for the UK, or $0.99, $9.99, and $19.99 for USA. It seems there are no differences in content between the three tiers, so it all depends on just how charitable you’re feeling.
If you don’t already own This War of Mine, which we thought was an excellent and respectful look at the horrors of war, this DLC presents a good time to do so. The game can be found here.
