More On: This War of Mine

I'm the dad of a five-year-old and I apparently want to rip myself to shreds and cry helpless tears all over my PlayStation, which is why I need, need, need to get my hands on This War of Mine: The Little Ones.

We already know that 2014's This War of Mine (GN score: 8.8 Class Leading) on PC is "depressing and unsettling" in all the best ways, but The Little Ones will be the PS4 and Xbox One release of the wartime-as-a-civilian stunner. And, in particular, The Little Ones adds an even more harrowing non-combatant look at the war—you guessed it—from the children's perspective.

If the trailer below doesn't get you, then please (please!) read the short but thematically rich developer's blog from Pawel Miechowski at 11 Bit Studios. This War of Mine: The Little Ones launches January 29 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Today Deep Silver releases the official gameplay trailer for the upcoming console release of the gritty and dramatic This War of Mine: The Little Ones.

Entirely new content is coming to the console release on January 29th for This War of Mine: The Little Ones, exploring the hardships of wartime survival as seen from an entirely new perspective--that of a child.

A fantastic developer blog post is up on the PlayStation blog - Pawel Miechowski from developer 11 bit studios gives a unique look at the game from the perspective of a "little one." Blog link is here:

This War of Mine: The Little Ones focuses on the reality of enduring war and the idea that even in war, kids are still kids -- they laugh, cry, play with toys and see the world differently. In addition to thinking about survival, you'll have to bring back the kid in yourself to understand how to protect the little ones. How far will you go to make it through another day?
