South China Sea Free Update
It is nearly a year since Cold Waters was released and what a year it has been...
In that time we've made continuous updates, improvements and added additional content, all to the base game and all for FREE!

What's New Trailer

What's New Trailer

Check out the What's New Trailer to see highlights of these major additions since release which include;

South China Sea Campaign
An all new campaign takes you to the warm waters of the Pacific where you'll take on the People's Liberation Army Navy of China in an attempt to maintain naval control and bring stability to the region.

New Player Submarines
By popular demand, the formidable Seawolf class is now playable along with the Los Angeles Flight 2 and Flight 3.

Crew Voices
Adding to the tension, immersion and putting you firmly in command, your crew now call out warnings, updates and verify orders you've given.

Point and Click Controls
We got a lot of feedback about the controls and listened to what players wanted, namely a full point and click interface with tool tips to command your submarine. So we added it (and made it fully modifiable to build the user interface you want).

Neutral Shipping
Not every contact is a target anymore! Fishing trawlers, container ships, tankers and whales roam the ocean making it crucial to correctly identify your targets before firing on them.

Improved Terrain, Cities and Air Bases
The terrain system has been completely overhauled to improve performance and visual quality. In addition, urban areas, cities, all new port facilities and air bases have been added, many of which may well be targets for your land strike missions.

Ship Recognition Manual
Can't remember the difference between a Kanin and a Kashin, or a Luda and a Luhu? You won't have to with the in-combat ship recognition manual, a comprehensive encyclopedia of the various ships and submarines outlining their capabilities, sensors and weapon systems.

New Vessels, Aircraft and Weapons
Over 35 new vessels, mostly comprising the People's Liberation Army Navy as well neutral shipping, have been added in conjunction with new weapon systems and aircraft to support them.

Vertical Launching Systems
Available on the Los Angeles Flight 2 and 3, these batteries of missiles let you stock up on additional anti-ship or anti-land missiles which can be fired in rapid volleys.

Oil Rigs
Similar to neutral shipping, oil rigs are also dotted about the oilfields of the North Sea and South China Sea.

I hope you guys'll keep updating CW and think about future zones of deployment and new missions

Just tried out my first SCS campaign and sunk in the second mission.

Turned back the initial invasion fleet from the PLAN with minimal difficulty.

Second engagement with an Improved Kilo and a Song got me sunk during torpedo evasion at extreme depths. First time that's ever happened to me thanks to a lost wire on a MK48 ADCAP but the songs torpedo got me while I was dodging my own weapon.

Very fun, disappointed with myself but hey I'll jump back into the game in a few days after I get over this one. Love the new content guys, keep it up.

Just go into More/Manage Installation/Verify Repair and the update will start mate

….EDIT... that doesn't work either, the update seems not to be applying to the GOG version

WOW! That is amazing. What a great game.

Congratulation for this work.

only bought this game 2 months ago, but am now putting lots of free time onto it. This game just sucks you in.

with the demise of the Silent Hunter franchise, Subsims really felt like they were as dead as Dodos, but this game brings back the feeling I felt when first discovering SH1 or 688HK.

great job, can't wait to see what the future brings. :up:

This is awesome. I can't wait to play it with the new content.

Speaking of which, how to I get the new content?

There no hint of a download link on Steam or on the Killerfish website that I could see. Just a mention of GoG... but I could find no way to download anything from there either.

Never mind. It updated overnight all by itself.

Awesome! I have been having a blast with the new South China Sea Campaign! Thank you Killer-fish for all of your hard work! :Kaleun_Thumbs_Up:

chrisreb 05-17-2018 02:35 AM

Does the playable subs mod work with this?

EDIT doen't look like it as none of the campaigns work - just a blank map and the SCS one does not show at all

Morrissey 05-17-2018 05:38 AM

So there I was quite happily playing the 2004 campaign (1.09) last night.
Woke up this morning and Steam downloads the latest update (1.15) and now I cannot get ANY campaign to work, screen goes blank either when, I start an new campaign and select a boat to command or if I go into a running campaign and click to load an autosave.......:hmmm::hmmm::hmmm::hmmm:

Have just tried uninstalling and reinstalling via steam and get the same result.
I am sure you on you guys will have the answer.
