If you’ve haddock enough of all these unprofessional fishing games spawning on various gaming platforms, then I’ve got just the news to reel you in, hook, line and sinker. Fishing Sim World: Pro Tour is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC on 18th July. Not only that, but there’s clearly a special plaice in the devs’ hearts for all the owners of Fishing Sim World, because they’re making this a free update.
Pro Tour is a big catch of an update, with a whole new career mode featuring a bunch of real world anglers to test yourself against, and with plenty of official licensed gear and sponsor brands. There’s a boat load of new fish to reel in, including Barbel, Channel Catfish, Brown and Rainbow Trout, across three new lakes at Lake Guntersville, Lake Travis and Lake Miller.
One thing’s for certain, if you take to the waters of online multiplayer, you’ll have to be good not to get schooled in the online tournaments, but can get some more relaxed custom multiplayer in instead.
Scott Martin of Scott Martin Challenge TV show fame (and being the most successful FLW Tour bass angler of all time) said, “I’m honoured to be part of Fishing Sim World: Pro Tour. This is such a [poissonate] project, with an incredible level of [fish-tail]. It’s a great way to introduce [mora] people to the world of bass fishing.”
Enough carping on about bass, what about carp? Scott’s joined by UK Korda angler Ali Hamidi, who appears on Monster Carp and The Big Fish Off.
If you think you might bite, Fishing Sim World is available now for PS4, Xbox One and PC, with Pro Tour being delivered as a free update on 18th July.
