London, United Kingdom – July 10th – Brighton-based two man development team Runner Duck Games, alongside award-winning publisher Curve Digital, announced today that Bomber Crew has maintained its course and exploded onto console. Runner Duck Games and Curve Digital are pleased to announce that Bomber Crew is available to play on Xbox Game Pass, letting subscribers rack up their flight time.
In Bomber Crew players must recruit, train, and upgrade their very own WWII flight team before piloting a Bomber over enemy territory. Your crewmembers only have one life, so every mission is fraught with danger as you guide the crew to victory while dodging flak fire, soaring through unstable weather conditions, avoiding enemy radar detection, battling dreaded enemy Aces, and more. Still you know what they say – who dares, wins.
Every Bomber is fully customisable, with the ability to change the base colour – from gaudy pink to camo green – all the way up to upgrading its bombing capability and your chances of survival. Using the in-game tool, you can even slap your slogan on the side of the vehicle or draw your own wing art, to strike fear or laughter into the hearts of your enemies.
As well as releasing on PlayStation 4®, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch™, Bomber Crew’s Season Pass is also available now, along with the Deluxe Editions and the debut DLC pack, Secret Weapons.
Secret Weapons (£4.99 / $5.99 / €5.99) sees players taking to the skies during the WWII “Big Week” in the winter of 1944. Players will be faced with new treacherous weather conditions to fly in, new enemy Aces to confront, changes to the airbase (bring a jacket for the snow!), and more ways to upgrade the Bomber.
Bomber Crew launches at £11.99 / €14.99 / $14.99, though early birds can take advantage of a 20% launch discount. The same limited time discount applies to Bomber Crew’s Deluxe Edition, which includes the Season Pass. Players can also purchase the Season Pass separately (£7.99 / $9.99 €9.99) for access to all the announced and released DLC, as well as one further set of unannounced side missions. The Season Pass offers a significant saving to purchasing all DLC separately.
Bomber Crew for console, which has proven to be a favourite among roguelike streamers on Twitch, will also include the all-new Infinite Mode and leaderboards – these new additions can also be found on PC as of today.
After generating $1 million within its first two weeks on sale for PC, Runner Duck Games and Curve Digital are excited to get Bomber Crew in the hands of console players, as well as offering a host of improvements for PC players to enjoy. Chocks away!
