Project Winter Update steam

Other Ocean Interactive, the developer of Project Winter, recently released a new update that adds in few features such as the ability to loot backpacks from corpses, which will allow for more resources for the survivors. You can also specify the details for each type of role when making custom games. If you had issues with animals in the past, you can now slow them down by using the tranquilizer gun. Other general bugs were also fixed in the latest update.

Project Winter Patch Notes

You can find the patch notes below:


  • Custom games can now specify the min and max counts for each type of role in the base game in addition to the min and max traitor counts
  • Custom games settings button in lobby will display an exclamation badge until the next it is pressed if the custom game settings have been updated by the host
  • Adjusted positioning and volume scaling of player proximity voice range. The radius for another player to be heard at max volume has been reduced by 75%, while the scaling is now more gradual so players will be more noticeably quiet at a distance. The positioning has also been adjusted so that players further south will no longer be easier to hear at a distance than players to the north.

  • Increased pieces of information revealed for Detective on investigation screen from three to five
  • Reduced traitor credits cost for cabin radio sabotage from 10 to five
  • Proximity traitor credits meter will now begin to drain after being out of range of survivors for several seconds rather than immediately emptying
