Ready for the most complete fishing simulation to date? Don’t fancy coughing up extra via the microtransaction route? The Fisherman – Fishing Planet is here, and today it is found releasing on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
It’s a pretty decent time to be an angler, particularly one who loves to embrace the best gaming experiences too, with multiple options in place allowing you to relive your favourite pastime without the hassle of leaving the house. One of our very favourite fishing games is the brilliant Fishing Sim World, which has added a ton of new content over the months. But alongside that is Fishing Planet. First released in free form, with microtransactions and DLC packs needing to be purchase in order to get the very best experience, we now see Fishing Planet move into the big time, with a launch as The Fisherman – Fishing Planet on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. And it is this latest edition which brings together all the best bits of Fishing Planet in one huge package.
Priced up at a cool $39.99 – before launching in the UK on the 17th for £49.99 – The Fisherman – Fishing Planet isn’t your one-stop cheap and cheerful caster, but instead promises to be the gold standard of fishing games, and for that price we sure hope it delivers the goods.
Our full review of The Fisherman – Fishing Planet on Xbox One is in the works and will be with you soon, but basically put, if you’re after a decent single player or multiplayer fishing option, then this should be one to consider. Full of content, including 143 species of fish which all run with true behaviours, and near-on 20 different fishing opportunities across the United States and Europe, you won’t be short of opportunities with The Fisherman.
Throw in a variety of fishing techniques to enjoy, and more than 1000 different types of fishing products, and you’ll fast understand why this should be more than appealing to any fishing fan.
If you haven’t previously gone down the free route and accompanied that by purchasing all manner of DLC options, and need a new fishing fix, then you can grab The Fisherman – Fishing Planet right now from the usual digital stores. The Xbox Store will sort out the Xbox One players, the PlayStation Store will do the same for those preferring the PS4 way of life. Playing on PC? You know what your best options are.
