This War of Mine: Stories - The Last Broadcast | Episode 2 Date Annoucement!
Hello there!

We've got some exciting news for you!

We've teamed up with Meg Jayanth, Writer of '80 Days', to deliver a new story to the game. Episode 2: The Last Broadcast - is coming soon!

https://youtu.be/DnI5j8fTFL4

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, Father’s Promise, when 11 bit studios joined forces with exceptionally talented game writer Meg Jayanth, most known for 80 Days (IGF winner for Excellence in Narrative), to create a new story for This War of Mine. Based on a scenario by Meg, we present to you The Last Broadcast, the newest installment to This War of Mine: Stories.

The new episode will launch on November 14, 2018, to mark the 4th anniversary of the original release of the game. Over the course of development, this story grew much larger in scope when compared to Father’s Promise.

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.

In this addition, we’re introducing a lot of new content with different endings, new gameplay mechanics, new moral dilemmas about telling the truth that influence the world, new playable civilians, a new shelter people can live in, and new sites of the city of Pogoren to visit. It had to be at least as good as the other stories you can find in This War of Mine. For this reason, after we received the scenario from Meg we iterated on the episode an enormous amount of times afterward. We had to make sure that in the end, the community would have a story they expect from us and we couldn’t let them down. And now that The Last Broadcast is releasing, I’d like to say ‘enjoy The Last Broadcast’, but perhaps the better wording is actually ‘experience The Last Broadcast’.”

This new episode will be priced at $3.99 USD. Due to the significant growth of this DLC, the season pass will change from its price of $4.99 to $6.99 on November 14, 2018. We strongly encourage players to act now if they want to get this great content before the price increase! Everyone who has purchased the season pass to date will receive all of the content without any additional cost.

Wishlist the DLC here:

And if you want to catch up, first episode of This War of Mine: Stories (Father's promise) can be bought here and Season Pass for This War of Mine: Stories (all 3 episodes) can be bought here.

Thank you for the ongoing support,
11 bit studios

Got excited about it, but two things:

- Only a Windows icon? Hoping that's a simple oversight since all previous DLC is on Linux.
- The actual game seems broke on Ubuntu Linux currently. I have a fix for you!

The Fix

It needs a "steam_appid.txt" text file with "282070" in it along with a "run.sh" file to launch it from with this inside:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="./";"./This War of Mine"
Otherwise, the executable can't find the libs it needs. Once you do that, set Steam to launch it from the run.sh file not the executable directly.

Both files need to be in the main folder with the executable. I can confirm that works perfectly :)

I've bought the season pass before Father’s Promise was released, with the expectation that all future items in the pass would also be supported on Linux. If that is changing, I'd like a refund.
looking forward to it, keep up the good work developers!

Another one here wondering about LInux support. The store page for the DLC appears to suggest its windows only.

I bought season pass expecting all future items to be supported.

Good news about the Episode 2 on PC at least, thank you.
But the season pass still says "3 episodes". Hope there will be info soon on the ETA of the 3rd Episode - since peope who own or would like to buy the season pass, may be worried that it could take another year or so to release the Episode 3...

Hello, I take it episode 3 will be released on Nov 14, 2019?

Will you need to purchase the Season Pass to get episode 2 and 3 or will you be able to buy them individually like episode 1?
