Winter Update And Secret Weapons DLC

Hello Everyone!

We’ve be overwhelmed with the response to Bomber Crew since its release, and have had numerous requests for more playable content. We’ve both been working at full tilt to bring you something in time for the winter holidays, and here it is - the Secret Weapons DLC!

You’ll take your crew through the challenging missions of ‘Big Week’, striking at the enemy’s aircraft production facilities during a snow-swept midwinter. The enemy will strike back with their most experimental fighter aircraft - and the deadly ace pilots who have mastered them!
You’ll also find a few goodies at the airbase, such as thermal flight suits, new base paint liveries, and some handy advanced upgrades to your bomber’s armaments.

Enjoyed the music in Bomber Crew? You can now grab the Official Soundtrack, which has been carefully re-mastered for the best listening experience.

The Bomber Crew Season Pass is now available! This offers all current and future DLC at a bargain price.

As it’s the season for giving, we also have a free update for everyone!
Here’s what’s new:
  • ‘New Bomber Upgrades: Ammo Feeds for all Turrets!’
    This holiday season, give all your gunners the gift of unlimited ammo belts. Go on, you know it’s what they always wanted!

  • ‘Slightly Quicker Tagging’
    The time it takes for a marker to be tagged is now reduced slightly.

  • ‘New Crew Gear: Festive Jumpers and Bobble Hats’
    Very warm and moderately stylish clobber - get your crew in a festive mood!

  • ‘New Bomber Upgrades: Seasonal Liveries’
    Yes, that bomber is wearing a festive jumper.

  • ‘Low Fuel Warning Indicator’
    The fuel light in the bottom-left of the screen will now flash when you have only 25% of your fuel remaining.

  • ‘Memorial Name Wall Extended’
    Over 800 brave fallen crew can now be remembered.
We’ve also made numerous small improvements and fixes.

Once again, thanks for all your support, it continues to be wonderful!
We’re going to have a short break over Christmas, then in the new year, crack on with bringing you more Bomber Crew updates!

If you celebrate it, Merry Christmas! If you don’t, Happy Holidays!

Bomber Crew - Update #2 Patch Notes


Thanks everyone, for all your suggestions and feedback. We’ve got plenty of work to do in preparing the console version of Bomber Crew, but your enthusiasm and support has given us the extra boost we need to continue improving the PC version, and the second update is here!

Here’s what’s new:
  • ‘Lock Pilot to Station Button’
    If you’ve ever found yourself in a situation where your pilot has wandered off without you realising, you may appreciate this new feature! There’s a new button on the Pilot’s station panel, which can be clicked to lock your pilot to the station, preventing them being sent elsewhere in the bomber. Click it again to unlock.

  • ‘Enemy Ace Health Bars Appear as Objectives’
    Now when your crew encounters an enemy Ace fighter, their health will appear on the right hand side of the screen as an objective, giving a clearer idea of how the battle is going.

  • ‘Toggle Quick Peek with the ‘Z’ Key’
    Hit the ‘Z’ key and your view will zoom straight into the bomber, allowing you to quickly get managing your crew. Hit the ‘Z’ key a second time to return to the previous camera view.
  • Other Changes:
    - Balancing of mid and later missions has been improved. They’re still challenging, but some groups of jets have been spaced out a little.

    - Leaking fuel tanks now display a visible effect.

    - Crew can now move when the bomber is at steeper angles.

    - Low fuel warning are now repeated to give them more urgency.

    - ‘Bail Out’ order can now be canceled by clicking the button a second time.

    - ‘Slow Time’ camera zoom is reduced.

    - Fixed: Engine fire extinguishers would not deplete if station was vacated.

    - Fixed: ‘Medium’ and ‘Low’ altitude button labels were swapped around.

    - Fixed: Rockets can no longer be detonated by clouds!

    - Heavier crew gear now slows down crewmembers slightly less.

    - Fixed: Rendering error on rear-starboard tail fin.

    - Fixed: Audio stuttering sometimes caused by many anti-aircraft guns firing together.

    There are plenty of things that didn’t make it in this time, but more improvements are on the way!

    If you’ve enjoyed the emotional rollercoaster of guiding your crew through Bomber Crew’s campaign, please consider nominating it for the “Choices Matter” Steam Award. This award seems to be tailor made for what we were striving for!

    We’re so grateful for all the kind words of support we’ve received, it really has been the best year :)

About This Game

Prepare your crew for their most dangerous mission yet and go chocks away for a sky-bound expedition in this strategic survival sim, Bomber Crew.

Choose your Crew!
Train and personalise your own Bomber Crew. Procedurally-generated names, skills and back stories means a unique experience for everyone, but be careful, as death is permanent.

Immersive flight simulation!
Carefully manage everything from fuel, ammo, hydraulics and more in your very own physics-based Bomber. Make it yours with a wide array of nose art and liveries, or design your own with the simple to use in-game tool.

Fast paced strategy!
Each mission is a high-risk expedition where danger comes from every angle. Enemy fighters, flak guns, poor weather, low oxygen and an array of other perilous dangers await when the wheels are up.

Be prepared!
Preparation is key for a successful mission. Tag enemy fighters before they reach you, make sure your destination is marked but most importantly, make sure you have the right team for the job. On a WW2 bomber, every role is essential for victory!
