bullhorn Demo Announcement & Video

From IronWolf Studio

Dear Destroyer fans,

Upon further consultation, we have decided to release the demo to a closed group of testers so that we can start gathering external feedback. Users will be able to get it from the Steam page, *when released, stay tuned.*

If you are interested in taking part in the test, please visit the Destroyer steam page and click on:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/1..._UBoat_Hunter/

to download the demo. There is a limited number of downloads available, so please make sure to download as soon as possible.

As far as feedback is concerned, feel free to discuss anything demo-related on Steam or on our Discord https://discord.com/invite/BRGJdz4Nr8.

If you wish to report bugs, corrections, or suggestions, please write to destroyer@ironwolfstudio.com and we will do our best to address each reported issue.

We hope that you will enjoy the demo and that your feedback will help us tailor the game to your preferences.

Default Multi-tasking failure.

Thanks for the clarification on the date.

That is what happens when I try and multi-task... Catch up on the forums & watch live football.

Brilliant video Neal, showcases the tense nature of the gameplay very well and at the same time allays the fears about the complexity of the interface that the publisher has highlighted, it actually looks very intuitive and relatively easy to get to grips with.

The cat and mouse nature of play and speed of play very much put Red Storm Rising into my mind and that is a great compliment for any game. Lets just hope that Playway take a leap of faith here and allow the game to come to its full fruition, there is a big gap in the market for quality naval sims left by the SH series and this game certainly feels like it is ideally positioned to fill that gap.

Hopefully the devs can satisfy the publishers’ requirements by adding tutorials and ai asssistants rather than dumbing things down, if they cant come to a compromise then perhaps a deal could be struck to move the game to the newly ressurected Microprose i am sure they would see the great potential here and be more than happy to partner with Iron Wolf.
