This War of Mine Is a War Game that Lets You Play as a Group of Civilians

Unlike pretty much every war video game ever made, 11 Studios’ This War of Mine is a survival game where you control a group of civilians trying to survive in a city surrounded by armed forces.

In the game, you don’t assume the role of a tank operator, a sniper, a medic or a soldier. Instead, you play as a group of refugees who can craft, trade, upgrade their shelter, feed and cure their own. Surviving also means that you’ll have to look for valuable items, such as food or medicine.

There aren’t any details about gameplay, but since the developers will show This War of Mine next week at GDC, there will be more news to share then. This War of Mine is in development for PC, Mac, Linux and mobile devices and the game’s expected to come out in 2014.
