Default SINGLE PLAYER MODE!

Thanks Onkel Neal and Developers!

I've had the game for, well since it came out, but have been waiting for single player due to timing and time zone issues for me.

Now I can finally enjoy the best of the best.

Come on, everyone, standing ovation for the team.

Congrats and great job guys! As soon as I got the email from Neal I knew I had to hop online and try it out

I recorded my gameplay, and unfortunately after the recording of this video I realized my mouse wasn't captured; I've thus been reassigned to the Eastern front

I think that this single player option is going to bring in a lot more players, especially those who were hesitant to get Wolfpack because of the multiplayer-only gameplay before.

Watch below:

Thanks for the video, Chad, very helpful!

Quick tip for playing solo but leaving the door open for any other players to join your battle in their own U-boat.

Select the Worldwide option and then select New Lobby

|
|
|

Lobby settings "Visible to Everyone" and no password. This way other captains are able to see your battle and join...


|
|
|

Then choose your boat and take the Captain role, and enter a password here.
This will prevent any other player from joining you in your boat. Using the bots,
you will be able to fight your submarine like a pro.


|
|
|

If any captains decide to join your battle, they will do so in their own sub, and not
interfere with the operation of your sub. You will see a note when another player joins
your battle but you will only be able to communicate with him (or them if 3 guys join
your battle) through the u-boat radio interface, which gives the whole experience a
touch of mystery and intrigue. You're fighting the convoy, and there are other u-boats
in your wolfpack, giving the escorts fits. You may hear their torpedoes when they hit!



|
|
|

The good thing about this version of the game, if players join and leave, it really doesn't
have much of an effect on you.

Is Discord with a headset still needed to play the single player option?

Yes, if you want to voice talk to any other players.

No, if you simply want to play alone.

You can also allow others to join your battle and simply communicate via the u-boat radio by sending messages. No Discord needed.

Discord was never 'needed' if you were fine with text chat.

If you want to voice communicate with your real life crew on the boat (or 'telepathically' with other uboats) it is needed. Still, other software is equally possible. So if your are playing totally alone, no. Unless you need to talk to yourself. The bots provided in this update don't make any difference to that.

I have been waiting for the bots since seeing the game listed on steam. Upon seeing them added I purchased the game immediately! I must say I am extremely impressed with what is here. I can't wait to stay on the course as the game continues to develop.

I have a good feeling this game will be what we always wanted in terms of realism, atmosphere and immersion. It is still early but I am very happy with my purchase

Thank you mister Neal and Dev team! keep up the wonderful work!
