Bombshell 1.1 + Free Shellshock DLC is finally here!

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 finally 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”.

The new 1.1 Update will now download automatically!

I’m curious what you mean by “filler areas,” because I didn’t notice any difference when I played it through again. All the side quests that I remembered were still in there, and everything was where it was before.

Have you enjoyed the update?

Yes! It plays wonderfully. No bugs for me, and I was able to get right through previous problem areas.
