‘The Last Broadcast’ is the second installment in the series of This War of Mine: Stories. Based on the idea by highly talented Meg Jayanth (80 Days) this episode explores the role of truth in a time of despair. This long-awaited DLC introduces a completely new scenario, along with new gameplay mechanics, playable civilians and multiple endings, significantly surpassing in scale first episode in the series (The Father’s Promise). As a radio-operator broadcasting in a war-torn city, face the dilemma of whether there is a line beyond which the truth can be sacrificed. As Ira Glass once said: ‘In radio you have two tools. Sound and silence.’

The Last Broadcast is a very interesting DLC, with new characters, new locations and all the main features of This War of Mine.

A constrained experience compared to what This War of Mine usually offers. The Last Broadcast tries to pull at the heartstrings, but you're mostly playing as Esma crafting or exploring, while your husband idly waits for something to happen.

11-Bit Studios has managed to both properly honor the spirit of the base game, and meaningfully iterate upon it with this latest DLC offering. Emotionally resonant, oppressively grim and generously stuffed with emergent possibility and multiple endings, The Last Broadcast widens the scope of The Grazni Civil War and is essential for both owners of This War of Mine and fans of supremely well-written survival narratives.
