Cold Waters

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
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.

Favourite of 2017


Tim Stone, of Rock Paper Shotgun names Cold Waters one of his favorite games for 2017.

He says, “…the brilliant Cold Waters somehow manages to be realistic, replayable and ravishing”.

Full story HERE.


The wait is finally over as Cold Waters is now available from Steam.

Overall things went pretty smoothly, aside from the regular launch day issues that come with day one.

Some user are experiencing technical issues so please keep the reports coming and we’ll address them in an upcoming patch.

We are committed to improving the game with future content, incorporating player feedback and are looking forward to seeing what the community creates with user generated content.

If you’d like to provide additional support, the soundtrack is also available for purchase.

Good hunting!


Tim Stone from Rock Paper Shotgun had some hands on time with a pre-release build of Cold Waters. Full Article Here.

Here’s what he had to say:

“I’m mightily impressed with what I’ve seen so far.”

“Moving your vessel and using its weapons and sensors = child’s play. Moving your vessel and using its weapons and sensors in such a way that you stay alive and slay the enemy = dashed tricky and totally engrossing.”

“Cold Waters’ GUI might be lightweight compared with Dangerous Waters’ but its physics, sonar and environmental modelling are strong enough to bear direct comparison.”

“Cold Waters – ETA: any day now – is looking remarkably strong”

Cold Waters: Ports


It was a busy weekend at Killerfish Games and after much work we’re pleased to announce that ports have made it into Cold Waters.
See the Cold Waters Community HUB for more.

Ports serve as strategic locations that can be lost or recaptured as the ground war in Europe unfolds. Some ports have airfields and keeping these under your control will enable friendly recon aircraft to patrol the seas looking for enemy movement. But if the enemy occupies these locations, they will be able to launch their recon aircraft instead.

Ports are also the focus of insertion missions. For these you will need to return to base, pick up a SEAL team and then make your way to the target port. On arrival, you’ll run the gambit of enemy ASW patrol ships as well as aircraft, helicopters and mine fields in an attempt to drop off your SEAL team while remaining undetected. If successful, your spec ops will perform sabotage behind enemy lines.


Spiritual Successor to the Microprose Classic “Red Storm Rising”

After tracking a Soviet landing force bound for Iceland it is time to plan your attack. Do you silently close in to torpedo the landing ships and escape during the resulting chaos? Or strike with long-range missiles but risk counterattack from the enemy escorts? Have you detected them all, could another submarine be out there listening for you? Has the hunter become the hunted? Will you survive the Cold Waters?

Inspired by the 1988 classic “Red Storm Rising”, take command a nuclear submarine in a desperate attempt to prevent “mutually assured destruction” when the Cold War gets hot and WWIII begins.

You will be tasked with intercepting convoys, amphibious landings, insertion missions and battling it out with enemy warships, submarines and aircraft. Thankfully, an arsenal of wire-guided torpedoes, anti-ship and cruise missiles and the occasional SEAL team are on board to keep the Iron Curtain at bay.

Major Features:
– Real-time naval combat
– Over 40 classes of ships and submarines all meticulously researched
– Dynamic Campaign where your performance matters
– Realistic sonar model
– Authentic Soviet combat tactics
