Call of the Wild: The Angler is an upcoming open-world fishing game

From the creators of TheHunter: Call of the Wild comes a new fishing adventure that you can experience alone or in co-op with up to 12 players.

Developer Expansive Worlds has gotten pretty good at providing naturalistic settings in which players can engage in the virtual rigors of hunting, but the developer’s next title is all about trading guns for fishing rods. From the folks who brought us TheHunter: Call of the Wild comes Call of the Wild: The Angler: an open-world fishing game where players use the best bait, rods and practice to try to Catch and bring back the big ones from various lakes and seashores.

Expansive Worlds has shared the first look at Call of the Wild: The Angler in a trailer posted on the developer’s site Youtube channel. It looks like Call of the Wild: The Angler will invite players into a huge natural terrain where they can drive around and find their favorite fishing holes. From here, players can go out on a variety of boats, or fish from docks and banks, and cast their lines from a wide range of fishing gear and tackle to try and catch the best aquatic creatures they can roll up.

The description of The Call of the Wild: The Angler trailer reveals a few more details about the game. Apparently, not only will players be able to explore The Angler on a solitary fishing adventure, but you can also join friends on the same card. The Angler will allow up to 12 players to play co-op in a single instance. This means you can take a few friends with you on this fishing adventure.

Call of the Wild: The Angler appears to be an immersive open-world fishing experience.

Call of the Wild: The Angler is coming to PC later this year via Steam, Epic Games Store, and the Microsoft Store, and consoles at a later date. It doesn’t have a concrete release date yet, but it can be added to wishlist now. We love a good hunting or fishing game here at Shacknews, so stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
