Any decent human being would agree to disagree when it comes to the subject of hunting for sport. But there is a continuous release of videogames based on hunting; could these be the future for the ‘sport’? They have been released to varying degrees of success from theHunter: Call of the Wild to Hunting Simulator 2. Can this latest release faithfully recreate the pastime? Find out today as Way of the Hunter releases on Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC.

Way of the Hunter boasts two massive territories in the US and Europe, with over 55 square miles each. That’s a lot of ground to cover and animals to hunt. As the new owner of the family hunting lodge, you and another play can team up co-operatively and explore these vast areas.

There will be a choice of highly realistic weapons to take with you, along with a rewind feature to make sure you got the perfect shot.

  • Dozens of strikingly detailed animal species with realistic behavior models for a truly immersive hunting experience
  • Enjoy your perfect hunting adventure among friends in co-op mode
  • Two vast hunting territories with 55 square miles each

  • Sophisticated natural animal animations and reactions when sensing the players presence

  • Complex Trophy system generates unique antlers and horns based on multiple factors like fitness and age
