From Press Release:
CHATHAM, Kent – July 5, 2018 – Dovetail Games has announced Fishing Sim World, the most authentic fishing experience ever made. Feel the adrenaline rush of landing trophy largemouth bass and the thrill of fighting huge carp and monster pike. Fishing Sim World perfectly combines realistic game physics and accurate fish AI for a genuine fishing adventure that will keep you hooked.
As you rise from beginner to pro, you’ll improve your skills, upgrade your equipment and master each environment. Fishing Sim World takes players to seven uniquely challenging and beautiful locations across the U.S. and Europe. Travel from the glacial Lake Boulder of Upstate New York and Florida’s sun-kissed Lake Johnson to the licensed Gigantica Main Lake in France and a challenging stretch of the UK’s Grand Union Canal.
Cast out on your own or with friends in multiplayer for up to four players, comparing catches in real time on the leaderboards. The battle doesn’t end there – compete in live tournaments against opponents from around the world as you fight to be crowned Fishing Sim World champion.
Fish from land, or get out on the water with your boat, using sonar to find the perfect fishing spot. You’ll need every advantage you can get – each of Fishing Sim World’s 18 species of fish has its own advanced AI and behavioural systems. From water temperature to choice of bait, you’ll have to learn how each fish reacts to its surroundings and adapt your strategy to catch your prey.
Fishing Sim World is fully licensed, featuring some of the biggest names in the industry from North America and Europe. Choose from hundreds of rods, reels and lures from real brands like Bass Cat Boats, Bill Lewis Outdoors (Rat-L-Trap), Duckett, Korda, and many more, offering thousands of winning equipment combinations to tackle the challenges ahead. Whether you’re a beginner picking up a fishing rod for the first time or a veteran looking to put your real-life angling skills to the test, Fishing Sim World will have something for you all.
“Our passion for simulation and realism ensures that Fishing Sim World will be 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!”
Fishing Sim World will be released on Sept. 18, 2018, on PlayStation®4, Xbox One and Steam (PC) at a cost of $39.99 / £29.99 / €34.99.
