This War of Mine [official site] developers 11 Bit Studios recently announced their next game, Frostpunk, but they weren’t quite done with This War. To celebrate the Sims-y survival game’s impending birthday (it’s Monday), they’ve launched a new free content update. Expect a new ending, new NPCs, and more as your rag-tag group of civilians try to survive in the warzone. That’s a cheery little end to this laff riot of a week.
This War of Mine: Anniversary Edition, as they’re calling it, is now live. It brings three new locations, new NPC civilians, a new ending scenario, and (gosh-o!) a new achievement. It also fixes a few bugs, including one that was making Day 42 repeat. War’s probably hard enough without Groundhog Daying it.
One problem: some players have reported problems with scenarios being locked after the update. The developers say they’re looking into it.

11 Bit have been a bit vague about Frostpunk but it sounds like another moral-o-survive ’em up, this time set in a icy world with steam-powered technology. It’s due some time in 2017.
