Bombshell Patch 1.1 + First Free DLC is almost here! Download the Beta NOW!
We've listened and here is what we're doing about it!

Hi Guys!

As most of you know, after the Bombshell release we've been doing extensive analysis of all reviews (Both good and bad), all user reviews, and comments from the Steam community and our forums.

We're happy to announce that we're close to being done with Bombshell 1.1, which will address a host of issue we've found that you've fed back on. Everything from balancing, new features, complete overhauls of certain gameplay mechanics, etc.

And it's massive! Tons of bugfixes, brand new features and a new free DLC included called "Shellshock Missions".

We would like to invite Bombshell fans to try out these new features, before we release the patch in the wild.

We just made the new branch of the game available for all of the current owners of Bombshell. You'll be able to opt-in to try out the new update, and allow us to get some final feedback before the release.

1. Right Click on "Bombshell" in your Steam Library.
2. Select "Properties"
3. Select the "BETAs" tab.
4. Enter the code: EnablePublicBeta
5. Select the Beta in the drop down menu.

The new 1.1 Update will now download automatically!
We've created a new subforum for Feedback and Bugs related to 1.1.


We hope you'll enjoy all the great new features!

Often, the bad reviews will weigh heavier than the positive, and we wanted to use that to improve as a studio.

Damn that's my patch !! Congrats, i was waiting for the next patch to play it again :)
will you be able to use the controller to display the controller bindings and are you able to change them with the controller now?

Also is there an exact date when this will be released? I will hold off and start a new game after this patch.

Everything included in the patch looks awesome.
