If you think of yourself as a fisherman, but also love your games then chances are you have been left floundering in the shallows with Dovetail Games’ Euro Fishing.

Released today is the next big thing from the Dovetail stables, that of Fishing Sim World and it promises to be the most authentic fishing game yet. No matter whether you want to fight a huge carp as you drag it to the shore, or head off out into the Grand Union Canal or the big bass lakes of the USA, Fishing Sim World will see you right.
A wide variety of fish are available for you to land, and there are quite literally hundreds of different equipment types to let you do so, with licensed gear from the likes of Bass Cat Boats, Rat-L-Trap, Duckett Fishing and Korda.
If you’re looking for a challenge, then Fishing Sim World will deliver as you get to take part in live tournaments against those from around the globe. If you prefer to fish with friends, then that too is an option that is available.
Fishing Sim World arrives on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. The Xbox Store should be your next port of call where a digital copy of the game will set you back £29.99. There is also a Deluxe Edition too and for an extra fiver will grant you access to extra goodies including 20,000 Tackle Points, a Fishing Sim World Deluxe Edition Boat, 5 Deluxe Lures, 2 Deluxe Edition Hoodies, 2 Deluxe Edition In-Game T-Shirts and 2 Deluxe Edition Caps.
