Publisher Ultimate Games S.A. and Polish development studio MasterCode revealed that Professional Fishing 2, the next installment of the popular fishing series, is coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC. The game will be available this September in early access on PC.
Professional Fishing 2 is a realistic fishing game focused on both the single-player and multiplayer experience. As announced by MasterCode, the new installment will be even more realism-oriented than the first game. The developers have announced new features such as larger fishing grounds, more fishing methods and fish species, as well as far more extensive multiplayer modes.
The new game will also feature survival and hunting elements, and an important role will be played by moving between fisheries in one’s own vehicles or by public transport.
For the Steam Early Access release, the developers are preparing one very large map, characteristics of which are based on Central and Eastern Europe. The final version of the map will cover a dozen or so square kilometers, and it will have various bodies of water, including small and large lakes, various rivers, ponds, oxbow lakes, and the sea.
“We will include many new features in Professional Fishing 2. For instance, players will be able to choose if they prefer first-person or third-person perspective. In addition, the multiplayer modes will include duels, tournaments, leaderboards, and other interesting features, while those who prefer playing alone will be able to enjoy loads of exciting challenges,” says Mateusz Zawadzki – CEO of Ultimate Games.
A free demo intended to give a taste of the full version will be released on PC this July. It will allow the players to familiarize themselves with one of the game’s regions. The demo will not be time-limited and will feature a single-player mode with online functionality.
