This War of Mine now has scenario and character editors

Also new locations in its biggest update yet.

Civilian war simulator This War of Mine's new 1.3 update is now available on Steam and it adds a slew of new content including scenario and characters editors, two new locations, and a couple more tunes on its soundtrack.

Winter is coming.

The Scenario Editor allows players to craft their own situations by choosing which characters to involve, the length of the conflict, where to set the scene, and what the weather will be like.

You can even create your own cast with the Character Editor. This allows you to choose how the NPCs look, what skills they have, and even write their bios.

"The characters already in the game were based on people close to the development team, ensuring that the experience was exceedingly personal for the people at 11 bit," the developer explained about its development process. So now you too can create harrowing stories about surviving alongside your friends and family.

Furthermore, there are two new locations - Old Town and the Looted Gas Station - along with a couple of new musical tracks for night missions.

See the new content in action in the latest developer diary below.
