Ultimate Fishing Simulator is a best-selling fishing game developed by the Polish studio Bit Golem. It has been converted to Xbox One by Console Labs S.A. This version is being published by Ultimate Games S.A. and PlayWay S.A. The basic edition available on Microsoft’s console will offer three DLCs upon launch, with subsequent ones being scheduled for later. In the following months, Ultimate Fishing Simulator will also hit PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
The fishing simulator debuted on the PC in August 2018 and is currently the highest rated game in its category. Currently, the percentage of positive reviews on Steam is as high as 86% and the game holds a Metascore of 70/100.The publisher reports that so far, the game has been bought by over 130 thousand people, and the number of sold add-ons has exceeded 100 thousand. The VR edition is also very popular.
“The premiere on Xbox One is the console debut of the Ultimate Fishing Simulator brand. The conversion takes into account the specific nature of Microsoft’s console, but it is the most faithful port possible. Many fisheries, various species of fish, very diverse fishing techniques, dynamic weather changes, a skill development system or a view from the perspective of the lure – these are only some of the game’s features. Naturally, the simulator is being developed mainly with lovers of virtual fishing in mind, but we have also prepared an additional mode that allows those who have no idea about catching fish to enjoy the game. What’s important, upon purchase, the Xbox One owners will receive not only the base game, but also three DLCs” – said Rafał Jelonek, COO at Ultimate Games S.A.
On the release day, the basic version of Ultimate Fishing Simulator for Xbox One will include three add-ons (Moraine Lake, Kariba Dam and Greenland). Further expansions will be released in the future.
Let's take a look at the official trailer.
As announced by Ultimate Games S.A., the simulator will also be available in a bundle with Car Mechanic Simulator and Thief Simulator published by PlayWay S.A.
