“This War of Mine” devs team up with Megan Jayanth, writer of “80 Days”, to deliver “The Last Broadcast”, a new DLC to “This War of Mine”
It took more than initially expected but we’re 11 bit studios – we iterate games hundreds of times to make sure what you are served is an utterly thrilling story. That’s the case with the new one.
Everything began after the first episode, when 11 bit studios have joint powers with exceptionally talented game writer Meg Jayanth, known among others for 80 days (IGF winner for Excellence in Narrative), to create the new story to This War of Mine. Based on a scenario by Meg, we proudly announce “The Last Broadcast” which is the new installment to This War of Mine: Stories.
The new episode will launch on November 14th to mark the 4th anniversary of the original release of the game. Over the development course, this story grew much comparing to the first one in the series. Tomasz Kisilewicz, project lead, says: surely it took us a while, but the focus was on delivering a deeply emotional story. The leading theme circles around the price of telling the truth. And we’re introducing a lot of new content. With different endings, new radio mechanics, new moral dilemmas about telling the truth that influence the world, new playable civilians and new sites of the city of Pogoren to visit. It has to be at least as good as the other stories you can find in This War of Mine. For this reason, when we got the scenario by Meg, we have iterated the episode enormous amount of times. We had to make sure that in the end, the community will have a story they expect from us and we can’t let them down. And now The Last Broadcast is releasing very soon. I would say “enjoy” but a better wording is actually “experience that”.
The new episode is priced at $3.99. Due to significant growth, the season pass will change its price from $4.99 to $6.99. It’s going to happen on the day of 14th November so we strongly encourage that if one would like to have it with the current price, that should be done prior to the release of the new episode. Everyone who have bought the season pass to this date, will receive all of the content without any additional spendings. The Last Broadcast is soon to be available on Steam, GOG.com, Humble Store and others.
