Usually when we play war games, we play the heavily armed and heavily armored soldier on the front lines, kicking ass and bringing freedom to all with a hail of bullets.

This War of Mine takes a different approach, and tasks you to look after a group of civilians trying to survive in their now demolished home town. It’s basically a new take on the survival horror genre. You’ll need to scavenge for food and materials, craft tools, manage your resources and survive the horrors war brings with it.

The gameplay trailer below shows how the game will be played, and also the bleak and dark mood developer 11 Bit Studios is going for. This War of Mine is coming November 14 on PC.
