If you like a bit of fishing, then you can’t go wrong with Dovetail Games’ Euro Fishing. Now though the kings of the cast are back with a new title – Fishing Sim World.
Announced today for a release on Xbox One, PS4 and PC come September 18th 2018, Fishing Sim World by Dovetail Games promises to be the most authentic fishing experience ever made. And when their current king – Euro Fishing – is already so damn good, hopes are very high indeed.
Fishing Sim World promises to deliver the adrenaline rush of landing trophy largemouth bass and the thrill of fighting huge carp and monster pike, as it perfectly combines both realistic game physics and accurate fish AI for the most authentic fishing experience. In fact, it could be said that you’ll be hooked from the very start.
It will see you raise your game as you rise from beginner to pro, improving your skills, upgrade your equipment and master each venue at hand. You won’t be left to fish alone either, as four friends can battle it out in a fight of the rods in 4-player multiplayer, comparing catches on real-time leaderboards.
It won’t end there either as live tournaments put you up against opponents from around the world, competing in a series of events as you fight for the right to be crowned Fishing Sim World champion. If there is a bigger accolade in world fishing right now, then I want to see it!
Don’t think that Fishing Sim World will see you restricted to fishing from land either, as the opportunity is there to grab a boat, activate your sonar and find the perfect spot for a bit of fishing action. You’ll need to utilise that too, gaining every advantage you can get, as each of the 18 species of fish have their own advanced AI and fish behavioural systems. From the water temperature to the bait choice, you’ll need watch how the fish react to the conditions around them and adapt your strategy to catch your prey.
There will be plenty of different scenarios too, with the glacial Lake Boulder set in Upstate New York, the sun-kissed Lake Johnson in Florida, the famous Gigantica Main Lake in France, and a most challenging stretch of the UK’s Grand Union Canal, all present and ready for you to hit. In fact, Fishing Sim World will take you to seven beautiful locations across the US and Europe, each offering their own unique challenges.
As you may imagine, Fishing Sim World is a fully licensed affair too, with Dovetail Games coming together with some of the biggest names in the industry from North America and Europe. This celebration of fishing sees you able to select from hundreds of rods, reels and lures, from the likes of Bass Cat Boats, Bill Lewis (Rat-L-Trap), Duckett and Korda, as well as many more offering thousands of different combinations to find the winning formula.
“We are delighted to be announcing Fishing Sim World, and or passion for simulation and realism has ensured this is the most authentic fishing game on the market,” said Mark Greenway, Fishing Sim World Director at Dovetail Games. “We cannot wait for fishing fans to take on the challenges of Bass and Predator Fishing, as well as catching huge Carp!”
If you’re new to the fishing scene, an old hand at casting, or just fancy something a little different from the usual gaming madness, then Dovetail Games’ Fishing Sim World looks set to deliver. We will of course bring you even more as and when details drop, but for now, get ready to grab those waders and choose your bait as the world of sim fishing gets turned on its head.
