If you like blowing stuff up then you'll no doubt love Bomber Crew when it flies on to the Switch eShop on the 10th of July. The game has been developed by Brighton-based two-man development team Runner Duck Games with a bit of help from publisher Curve Digital.
In the game players must recruit, train, and upgrade their very own WWII flight team before piloting a Bomber over enemy territory. Your crew members only have one life, so every mission is fraught with danger as you guide the crew to victory while dodging flak fire, maintaining course through unstable weather conditions, avoiding enemy radar detection, battling dreaded enemy Aces, and more.
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.
Interestingly, Bomber Crew features a Season Pass which will be available on the same date as the main game, along with the Deluxe Editions and the debut DLC pack, Secret Weapons.
Secret Weapons 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, and more ways to upgrade the Bomber.
Players can also purchase the Season Pass 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.
Based on what we've seen of the trailer above it all looks rather lovely. Let us know if you plan to join the Bomber Crew in July with a comment below.
