Hi there, everyone!

We are super proud to announce that This War of Mine: Stories - Fading Embers IS OUT!

Fading Embers is the third installment in This War of Mine: Stories. It portrays the story of Anja. Living in a warzone and carrying a heavy burden, Anja wrestles with herself to answer the question of what is more important - survival of human legacy or the survival of a man.

The DLC contains new locations in the city of Pogoren and its vicinity, new shelters people can live in, enhanced locations from the original game, new playable survivors and citizens of Pogoren. Most importantly, the structure of 'Fading Embers' brings new ways to experience narrative along with non-linear structure leading to multiple endings based on player's decisions. Since the main theme orbits around human legacy, new gameplay mechanics introduces collecting art, deciding on its fate and more.

Lead Artist of Fading Embers, Tomasz Kisilewicz, underlines the new DLC this way: "The new This War of Mine: Stories episode touches on the subject of cultural heritage and what it means during the war. Is it worth preserving even at the darkest times? Or maybe when we're pushed to our limits, when death and starvation are omnipresent - we change our perception of art and culture? And despite the artistic value - paintings, sculptures, and rare books - become mere tools of survival. Just because by destroying them we can postpone our own demise. Is this cost justifiable? Players will have to face those dilemmas for themselves."

1. Theme and story:

Epic is finally beginning to introduce a feature we've been expecting for a while - cloud saves.

A player spotted the new function in the setting pages for recent Epic Store freebie, Moonlighter, and Epic boss Tim Sweeney confirmed the feature is enabled right now for a select few new games.

Reddit user u/arctyczyn also noted This War of Mine (which went up on the store for free at the same time as Moonlighter) currently supports cloud saves too. Sweeney noted Epic has "a bit more work to do before rolling it out more widely".

Epic continues its efforts to coax PC players onto its store this week with another batch of freebies in the form of This War of Mine and Moonlighter. And while you're here, I might as well let you know that Alan Wake and For Honor are up next.

Moonlighter - which is free right now, alongside This War of Mine - offers an intriguing blend of shop management and dungeon crawling. By day, plucky hero Will stacks shelves and tends to the whims of his customers, while his nightly pursuits involve monster slaying and exploration.

The gist of Moonlighter's cyclical action is that items found while adventuring make for exotic new goods to sell in-store, and, in turn, pay for better equipment for deeper dungeoning and even more exotic wares. Eurogamer liked it a lot on release. Perhaps not coincidentally, Moonlighter just launched its first paid DLC, Between Dimensions, on PC.

Developer 11 Bit Studios has, at long last, unveiled the third and final 'Stories' DLC episode for its critically acclaimed survival game This War of Mine. It's called Fading Embers, and is coming to PC and Mac on 6th August.

11 Bit Studios' Stories series began in 2017, some three years after the release of This War of Mine. Although it follows the same side-scrolling stealth-survival formula of the base game, it brings a greater narrative focus to the sombre, often harrowing action, telling the tales of specific characters attempting to live their lives in the same war-torn city.

To date, Stories has introduced Father's Promise - charting the journey of Adam, as he tries to save his daughter from the horrors of war - and The Last Broadcast, exploring "the role of truth in times of despair" through the eyes of a radio operator.

This War of Mine

This War of Mine, 11 bit Studios' haunting survival management game, isn't done with its grim warzone stories and distressing morality tests. A third piece of narrative-driven DLC is heading our way, promising another gloomy scenario and some big existential quandaries. 

Fading Embers tells the story of Anja, trapped in a warzone and stuck carrying a heaven burden. 11 bit is keeping quiet about the details but says she'll be wrestling with a big question about what's more important—human life or the legacy we leave behind. Heavy stuff! 

"The latest This War of Mine story focuses on choices that can lead to multiple endings," says lead artist Tomasz Kisilewicz. "These branches were necessary to help address the overarching question of what has the bigger value—things made by men that outlast life or the life of a man itself. When you think about it, humans stand against the destructive power of war not only to save themselves but also to save what entire generations have created."

It sounds a wee bit highfalutin, but This War of Mine typically manages to be fairly grounded, focusing on people even when it's dealing with big conundrums and the ethics of survival. 

Fading Empires is due out on August 6.

Epic Games started out giving away one free game per fortnight to lure people into their new Store. Then they moved to weekly giveaways. Now, this week, they have two games free for keepsies. I don’t know where this acceleration of freebies ends, but I can tell you that you have seven days to grab This War Of Mine and Moonlighter.

Hi there,

we have some great news for you. As you probably know, we are not only a game developer but also a indie games publisher. And we are getting ready to release an indie gem to this world called Children of Morta. It's a story-driven action RPG about an extraordinary family of heroes.

While it's not as grim as This War of Mine - we still believe you'll find Children of Morta's dark fantasy themes captivating. Now, you can try it now for free, for 72 hours!

https://store.steampowered.com/app/330020/Children_of_Morta/

The pre-release event is going to end on June 22nd. At the same time, Children of Morta pre-order launches on Steam with a 10% discount and is giving access to the soundtrack on the release day, which will come in the Summer for Xbox One , Nintendo Switch , PlayStation 4 and PC.

See the new teaser here:

We hope you’re going to enjoy this foretaste of Children of Morta and we can’t wait for you to experience the full game later this year!

This War of Mine

There's a real sense of momentum about Polish game-maker 11 bit Studios. It might not be turning out blockbusters, in the biggest sense, but the games it makes are thought-provoking in ways which stay with you long after playing. In This War of Mine, we played as civilians trying to survive in a warzone; in Frostpunk we built a city and braced it for apocalyptic cold. Both games asked how far you were prepared to go to survive.

They reviewed well and they sold well. 11 bit announced recently Frostpunk had sold more than 1.4 million copies on PC, and there's a version coming to PS4 and Xbox One this summer (11 bit would like to do Switch, it tells me, but hasn't even begun exploring it yet. Edit: Frostpunk project lead Jakub Stokalski talked more on Twitter about the possibility of a Switch version after this article was published. It doesn't sound likely. "The demand for it would have to be overwhelming for us to consider it," he said.) 11 bit also helps other indie games as publisher. In other words, it's a company on the rise, and all that momentum is going into what's next: Project 8.

Project 8 will be the first game 11 bit has made with consoles in mind from the outset, the company's PR and marketing manager Karol Zajaczkowski tells me, at Digital Dragons 2019. The hope is a simultaneous PC and console launch - whatever those consoles happen to be at the time.
