The universe of This War of Mine has been expanded by following DLCs:
The Little Ones - explores the hardships of wartime survival as seen from an entirely new perspective - that of a child.
This War of Mine: Stories:
1st episode: The Father's Promise - a heartbreaking tale of loss and hope in a war-torn city
2nd episode: The Last Broadcast – as a radio-operator you are going to face moral dilemmas and decide, whether there is a price too high for the truth
3rd episode: Fading Embers - in severe and harsh winter, you will need to find an answer to the question of what is more important - survival of human legacy or the survival of a man.
All of the Stories episodes are available as separate DLCs as well as a part of Season Pass. The Little Ones DLC is not included in the Season Pass.
In This War Of Mine you do not play as an elite soldier, rather a group of civilians trying to survive in a besieged city; struggling with lack of food, medicine and constant danger from snipers and hostile scavengers. The game provides an experience of war seen from an entirely new angle.
The pace of This War of Mine is imposed by the day and night cycle. During the day snipers outside stop you from leaving your refuge, so you need to focus on maintaining your hideout: crafting, trading and taking care of your survivors. At night, take one of your civilians on a mission to scavenge through a set of unique locations for items that will help you stay alive.
Make life-and-death decisions driven by your conscience. Try to protect everybody from your shelter or sacrifice some of them for longer-term survival. During war, there are no good or bad decisions; there is only survival. The sooner you realize that, the better.
This War of Mine: Anniversary Edition
It's been two years since This War of Mine global release and we're still expanding the experience. This new free DLC, created especially for the Anniversary Edition, adds new characters, new locations to explore, and most importantly - a whole new ending, leading to a different outcome to the game. The dilemma though remains the same – how far will you go, to protect the ones you care about?
• Inspired by real-life events
• Control your survivors and manage your shelter
• Craft weapons, alcohol, beds or stoves – anything that helps you survive
• Make decisions - an often unforgiving and emotionally difficult experience
• Randomized world and characters every time you start a new game
• Charcoal-stylized aesthetics to complement the game's theme
By any means necessary.
Is this a game you want to play? No. Is it a game anyone with a beating heart should play? Yes. A million times yes.

Ratings and Reviews
Make The Days Until Ceasfire a Random Number
I absolutely love this game! However, I think that it could be improved if instead of choosing 40 days until ceasefire, or 50 days until ceasefire, the player can chose for the game to select a random number of days until ceasefire. I don’t think that in a real-life situation people would know exactly how many days that they would need to survive. Adding a random number generator would add an extra element to the game. Otherwise, I love it.
Even years later they are still updating and adding new content to a well crafted and compelling game, with incredible replay value. 10/10 would buy again
They make it hard to enjoy
The game is challenging, and can be lots of fun. But due to the monotony of some tasks, (build 2 beds, build a stove, etc) it makes it all the more "sucky" when you cant save and go back if you make a mistake and someone dies. Instead of being able to try different strategies before a mistake, you have to either plow on, handicapped, or restart again, and be forced to do the same menial tasks all over again just to get to a point where you can begin to be strategic. If you want to tear your hair out on day 5, because you did 450 menial things right, and then had some bad luck which torpedoes your game, by all means buy this.
