11bit Studios has announced that a new version of This War of Mine, a game about war that is told from the perspective of civilians, is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The new game is called "The Little Ones," and in it, you control a group of civilians trapped in a warzone.

"The Little Ones focuses not only on the reality of enduring war, but also the fact that even in times of conflict, kids are still kids," 11bit said in a statement. "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. Their faith, and their futures, are in your hands."
Like its predecessor, The Little Ones features a day/night cycle that affects how the game plays out. During daytime, the threat of snipers keeps you from leaving your camp. At night, you'll have to venture out to scavenge for items to help you stay alive. Ultimately, the game asks the question: "How far will you go to make it through another day?"
"Is this a game you want to play? No. Is it a game anyone with a beating heart should play? Yes. A million times yes," reviewer Justin Clark wrote. "It's a longform exercise in empathy, a sobering piece of work that fills in the blanks left when all we see of war are the headshots. It's a much-needed course correct in the current shoot-first-ask-questions-never gaming landscape that supposes war is won because one supreme badguy caught a bullet through his brainstem. No: It's won when the people who lived under his boot get to go home."
