Bassmaster® Fishing 2022 and Share Post-Launch Plans in New Q&A Video
Dovetail Games, developer and publisher of authentic sports simulation titles, are sharing a peek behind the curtain to reveal exciting new features coming to Bassmaster® Fishing 2022 ahead of its release on PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4 home computer entertainment system, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X, and Windows PC via Steam in North America and Europe on Oct. 28. Bassmaster® Fishing 2022 is available for pre-order now with a standard edition available for $39.99 / €34.99 / £29.99 and a Digital Deluxe Edition available for $44.99 / €39.99 / £34.99 with a 10% discount on all platforms* and will be available with Xbox Game Pass on launch.
Join Executive Producer Ben Gunstone, Studio Producer Desmond O’Conner, and Community Manager Benjamin Symons for a discussion about some of the work being done to make Bassmaster® Fishing 2022 the most authentic bass fishing experience possible. Featuring a fully in-depth career mode, players will begin their angling career in the College Series and then move up through the ranks in the Opens, Elite Series, and ultimately the Bassmaster Classic® as they strive to achieve angling immortality.
In addition to sharing more of the gear and simulation mechanics players will engage with through the career mode, the team also shared more information about the title’s multiplayer modes, including Bassmaster Royale, which all feature multiplayer cross-play on all platforms. This game mode will have up to 60 players go head-to-head to be the last angler standing in an intense 40-minute round of catching bass where players will need to stay above the cut line to avoid being eliminated.
The team took the opportunity to share their plans for post-launch support as well, with plans for additional DLC content including new fishing gear, anglers, and venues. A roadmap with new content, feature enhancements, quality of life improvements and more will be released later this year. The team is specifically looking to add additional character customization elements including beards and more diverse clothing to express each players individuality whether fishing solo or online with others.
Developed and published by Dovetail Games, Bassmaster® Fishing 2022 will release on Oct. 28 in North America and Europe on the PS5™, PS4™ system, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One/Xbox One X, Windows PC via Steam, and Xbox Game Pass. For regular updates please visit www.bassmasterthegame.com.
