This War of Mine has received the episode two of The Last Broadcast DLC, bringing more content for those who want to play through the atmospheric scenes of the game that tells of the day-to-day hardships of civilians in a war-torn country.

This War of Mine was both a critical success and well received by players for its gritty portrayal of the not-so-glorious side of modern wars. It depicts ugly scenes of everyday wartime life and attempts at survival through the eyes of a handful survivors. The game takes place in a fictional city, with fictional characters, but the inspiration was drawn heavily from the Siege of Sarajevo.

Those who haven't had their fill of this great simulation already had an opportunity to play Father's Promise DLC, which was the first episode of post-launch content. Now, there is episode two, bearing the name The Last Broadcast. This DLC is available on all major digital storefronts, such as Steam, GOG, Humble Store or Green Man Gaming.

It will tell the story of Malik, a radio broadcaster who is trying his best to keep the survivors of Pogoren informed of anything that could help them stay alive. According to 11 bit studios, this episode is based on a scenario from Meg Jayanth and likely her work on 80 days.

Players will face the tough choices, with emphasis being on the price of telling the truth, and the various outcomes of doing so. The Last Broadcast will feature new playable civilians, new city sites and gameplay mechanics that will focus on players' morality. The studio also stated that this DLC is bigger in scope than Father's Promise was.

Pricing is fairly low, as The Last Broadcast will cost $3,99 / €3,99 / £2.99. Players can also gain access to it by purchasing the Season Pass, which costs $6,99 / €6,99 / £5.19. Bear in mind that you will need the base game in order to play it, as this is not a standalone expansion.
