There have been quite a few fishing games available on the market but before Dovetail Games released Euro Fishing on PC and Xbox the vast majority seemed to concentrate on lure fishing for Bass.
Today came the announcement that Euro Fishing will be available on PlayStation 4 on the 11th of April and is available to pre-order now, if you do so you will receive a 20% discount.
From what I have seen so far the graphics look amazing and the attention to detail is to be praised. The fact that Dovetail Games have consulted with Simon Scott (who I consider to be one of the leading brains when it comes to all things Carp) shows just how committed they are to making the gameplay as realistic as it can be.
Below are some examples of what you can expect to see from the PlayStation 4 version along with the official press release.
FISH ON, GAME ON!
DOVETAIL GAMES ANNOUNCES RELEASE DATE FOR EURO FISHING ON PLAYSTATION 4
Chatham, Kent – Tuesday 21st March 2017. Dovetail Games, the multi award-winning developer and publisher of a range of simulation games today announced that following on from a successful Xbox One release, Dovetail Games Euro Fishing will be launching on PlayStation 4 on 11th April 2017 and is available to pre-order at a 20% discount from the PlayStation.com store from today.
Whether you are a fishing beginner or angling pro, Euro Fishing authentically and accurately replicates the feeling of real fishing from the comfort of your sofa. Welcome to the great indoors!
There are five game modes, which include “Freedom Fishing” where you can practice on any of the five venues included in the game, fishing at your own pace to try and catch the one of the many boss fish such as the “Big Plated” or the “Box Common” hiding below the surface. Or compete against friends and other liked minded anglers in the fast paced “Tournament Fishing” mode where catches are tracked and recorded in time limited matches, allowing you to move up the global leader board to become the best angler in the world!
To add that extra level of realism to the game, Simon Scott, the UK’s leading fish behaviour expert, has provided advice and guidance to help ensure the fish AI for the game is as realistic as possible and with fully licensed content from world-leading manufacturers including Korda, Delkim, Mainline, Sonik Sports, RAD Angling, and Wofte Clothing the game has that true authentic edge.
The response to the game from the fishing press has been overwhelmingly positive.
“Outstanding; a new generation of game bringing realistic carp fishing to anglers of all ages.”
