This War of Mine is Free-to-Play on Steam


11 bit studios has announced that This War of Mine is free-to-play on Steam from now until Sunday, April 8th, 2018. Frostpunk will be released on April 24th.

Quote:
April 3, 2018 ó For the team at 11 bit studios, Frostpunk is their biggest and most ambitious project to date and with just three weeks left to the release, theyíre in the mood for giving! Their gift to gamers is their most important creation so far, the solemn survival game, This War of Mine - an emotional narrative highlighting the struggle of surviving war and the heavy burden of getting by in a war-torn region from the eyes of the civilians it impacts.

Recently, This War of Mine hit a milestone of 2.5 million copies sold on Steam and along with receiving many awards (including the SXSW Cultural Innovation Award and IGF Audience Award) this accomplishment has reaffirmed 11 bit studiosí philosophy on creating mature, thought-provoking games. Additionally, the studio continues its mission to support the War Child childrenís charity through funds raised by the sale of DLC content dedicated to that sole purpose and the studio hopes to share another milestone in fundraising soon.

And finally, a special extended version of the game - This War of Mine Anniversary Edition - is free on Steam until Sunday April 8th, 2018 to celebrate the upcoming debut of Frostpunk and to prepare the gaming community for the next emotionally heavy experience from 11 bit studios.

Looking forward to finding out if Frostpunk is up to the same quality as This War of Mine. If it is... It'll likely be a purchase.

Definitely has it's art direction going for it imo.

It is free TO PLAY until Sunday. Not actually free.

Should update the article.

Yeah, I noticed the same thing.

Still, anyone who hasn't experienced the game before should try and play at least two sessions. After the first one (which you're likely to fail), you can change the parameters for the following attempts, giving you a much better chance at survival - without resorting to violence against the elderly.

At least, that's the way it worked when I played the game a few years ago.
