This War of Mine: Stories - Father's Promise DLC is here!
Hi there, everyone!

I have some really good news for all This War of Mine fans!

It’s been 3 years since This War of Mine debuted on PCs.
The experience of surviving war presented from a civilian angle quickly became a global phenomenon - a game triggering strong yet sad emotions that has been found engaging and compelling at the same time. Huge community grew around the game and inspired us with hundreds of ideas. These are ideas brought to life with a brand new DLC: Father’s Promise.

Father's Promise DLC is an original tale set in the world of This War of Mine. It tells a story of family’s struggle to preserve the last pieces of humanity in times of despair and cruelty.

Become Adam - a father trying to save his daughter from the horrors of war and leave the besieged city. Follow their steps and discover a story of love, hate and sacrifice - the emotions we all share in the darkest of days.

DLC offers a brand new, distinctive experience with additional game mechanics and several hours of thought-provoking gameplay. It is also the opening of the first season of This War of Mine: Stories. The next episodes will follow in 2018.

The Father's Promise DLC introduces:
  • a brand new storyline based on an audio-drama written by the famous Polish author, Łukasz Orbitowski
  • 4 completely new locations
  • 5 reconstructed and remastered locations
  • set of new game mechanics: dialogue and clue searching systems

You can buy the DLC it here:

FAQ:
I've gathered some DLC-related answers for you that may be useful:

1. Why is there a ~780MB download for everyone?
We just had to do it due to technical requirements. We know it means that all of you must download this content now, even if you don't own the DLC - but it was the only way we could do it. We just hope it's not THAT big of a inconvenience - and we are sorry that it was the only solution here.

2. DLC vs Season Pass.
It's quite simple - when you buy the Father's Promise DLC separately - you will get access only to this DLC. If you buy the Season Pass - you will get access to two future episodes as soon as they are released.

3. DLC content not available.
We had a small issue that DLC content was not visible on Mac and Linux when you bought it. It should be already fixed. Be sure to restart Steam before launching the game. If the issue still persists, let us know at techsupport@11bitstudios.com

4. Ending.
There is only one ending. No alternative ones. Please, don't spoil it for everyone.

5. DLC content "leaking" to original game.
There are very few scenarios when some DLC content (dialogues, characters' names) may be visible in the main, original game. We are working on a fix to solve this.

6. Other bugs.
First thing - if you experience any issues - be sure to disable mods.
Secondly, we are gathering your technical feedback via techsupport@11bitstudios.com - our QA team is replicating the bugs if possible and then they can work on some fixes. This usually takes some time.

7. Console/mobile versions.
We would love to have this DLC available on other platforms and we are considering it. But there is nothing we can confirm at the moment.

8. Future episodes.
Two more episodes are planned for 2018. We do not have any specific dates at the moment.

I hope that answers most of your questions. Remember that our Support is at your disposal - just write to: techsupport@11bitstudios when encountering technical issues with the original game or the DLC(s).

So, I did not buy the DLC or the Season Pass, yet still I get a download of 780 MB. Why?

agreed, waste of my bandwidth caps

Edit, worse yet, I can't start the game in offline mode since a patch is pending .. great call, now I can't use this until next month when my caps are reset.
POS move to push this as an update

Edit2: I changed the app acf so it thinks the d/l is done ... I can start the game.
Srill think releasing DLC as a "patch" is scummy practice

Good day, developer! Thanks for the new content, bought the Season Pass. Are all 4 achievements obtainable in the 1st episode? I really care about my Average Game Completion and hope that there's no need to wait about a year to get 100% in your game back.

Yes, they are all obtainable in Father's Promise DLC.

Currently this DLC is only available on PC. We are considering other platforms - but can't confirm anything at this point. Stay tuned!

Do I need to buy The Little Ones DLC in order to play the Season Pass? Since the 1st story features a father and a child, I'm not sure if I will be able to play it if I don't have The Little ones DLC.
