The Hunt is On in New theHunter: Call of the Wild Trailer
No, that isn't a typo in the headline. The upcoming game from Avalanche Studios, Expansive Worlds, and astragon Entertainment is actually called theHunter: Call of the Wild. Guess what? It's a game about hunting! You're going to be hunting on a few different lands. This latest trailer shows off the game's "second major hunting reserve, dubbed Layton Lake District."
Set in the Pacific Northwest, Layton Lake District offers a dramatic departure from the mellow autumn hues of the previously announced Hirschfelden hunting reserve. Featuring dense pine forests surrounded by snow-covered peaks; the vast landscape is inhabited by majestic game like the Moose, the Whitetail Deer, the Roosevelt Elk, the Black Bear, and more.
A total of 14 unique base weapons are available for your hunt, ranging from long-range rifles to stealthy precision bows and agile handguns. Some can be customized with scopes and outfitted with different types of ammunition. A set of skills can also alter the way you handle weapons, like decreasing recoil or reloading faster in a tight spot.
Lastly, we announce that theHunter™: Call of the Wild supports Tobii eye tracking at launch. This impressive technology heightens one of hunting’s most important senses and makes it an even bigger part of the gameplay experience. Freely explore your surroundings, become more aware of the environment, and increase your sense of immersion.
theHunter: Call of the Wild is slated to be released on February 16 at $29.99 (USD) for the PC. A retail release is slated for March 7 in the Americas.
