Avalanche Studios Bringing ‘The Hunter: Call of the Wild’ to Xbox One and PS4 (VIDEO)
Avalanche Studios, the team that brought you the Just Cause franchise, will be publishing Expansive Worlds’ The Hunter: Call of the Wild to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles in the future. It’s an open-world hunting game for hunting enthusiasts during the off-season or just for those who want to try at the experience of hunting on a reserve. Its realism lies within the player’s interaction and travel within the environment, and the particular nuances of hunting in real life. For example, making sure the prey is not downwind is important so the animal can’t pick up on your scent or ensuring the noise you make while walking through brush is minimal. Deer are skittish creatures so that tactics for killing them may be different in comparison to the ones use on a bear. Check out the gameplay video below for an in-depth explanation of the in-game world:
The Hunter: Call of the Wild was originally released on PC on February 16th, 2017 with a price tag of $30.00. While relatively cheap in comparison to other current games, the game does rely on microtransactions for support. It is unclear whether the console version will follow suit with the microtransaction aspect, but the likelihood of that happening is high. The release date for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles have not been announced yet, but the goal for Avalanche Studios and Expansive Worlds is 2017! Whether that means in a couple months or by the end of the year, the team wants to make the transition and “introduction to the wild is as smooth and enjoyable as it can be”.
