Unreal Engine 4 Fishing Simulation Hooks a PC Release Late This Year


Dovetail Games has revealed that it’s developing the lazily titled Dovetail Games Fishing for a PC launch in late 2014. Additional platforms will follow sometime thereafter.

Dovetail Games Fishing, from the conductors of the Train Simulator franchise, will harness the power of Unreal Engine 4 to “recreate in breath-taking detail the immersive and engaging experience of angling for leisure or competition.” The game will also feature a buzzword-sounding ‘Total Cast Control’ mechanism for casting and reeling. In the beginning, the game will have players fishing for carp, but eventually bass and fly fishing as well as other angling methods will become available.

Other exciting tech goals are being developed for as well, including VR support and “an evolving live service that will grow and expand in ways defined by us in partnership with fishing experts and our community.” Dovetail is aiming to make the game a key fixture in the e-sports arena.
