Call of the Wild: The Angler has looked like a massive step in outdoor lifestyle hunting and fishing sims. The game introduces players to the vast expanse of the Golden Ridge Reserve (the first map that will launch with the game). Up to 12 players will be able to explore the Reserve, driving various vehicles around the hills and forests of the area to reach prime fishing spots in ponds, lakes, and rivers. From there, you’ll grow a wide assortment of gear and techniques you’ll need to become a master angler. The game will feature a wide array of various bait, fishing poles, line, and other tackle, and the available equipment will grow with future updates.

We recently had a chance to speak with some of the developers at Expansive Worlds in an interview about The Angler and various topics, including gathering new gear, fast-travel, how fish will spawn, and more.

With a release date set for August 31, 2022, on PC, Call of the Wild: The Angler will be one to watch for any digital outdoor sportsman. Stay tuned for more updates and coverage, right here at Shacknews.
