The Hunt and The Strike aim to deliver the most realistic hunting and fishing experiences to-date, combining detailed environments and engaging gameplay with highly interactive fishing pole and rifle controllers (Wii only).
The Strike puts the fishing rod in players' hands as they head out to their favorite fishing holes, including ten of North America's greatest lakes. Featuring realistic lake bottom topography, advanced graphics, life-like fish behaviors, fully customizable characters and an abundance of boats, lures, rods and reels, The Strike offers virtual anglers the most realistic fishing game experience to-date. Players will enjoy a variety of game-play modes including Quick Fish, Career and Bass Pro Shops Invitational Tournament, or they can compete with friends in boat racing and casting challenges.
The Hunt drops players into the wilderness of North America's most famous hunting locations where players will be able to stalk and hunt their prey using a variety of different firearms--bolt-action rifles, shotguns, pistols, bows, and knives. To help them in their hunt they will use Bass Pro Shops gear and equipment like calls, scents, stands and a uniquely designed GPS to guide the player to the action. The Hunt features three game modes: Quick Hunt, Career Mode, and the Bass Pro Shops Continental Classic Hunting Championship as well as four mini-games (Target Range shooting, ATV Racing, Blind Fire, and Coyote Cruise).
To develop The Strike and The Hunt, Griffin International is leveraging its Psyclone division, a leading developer of videogame accessories, to build the custom fishing pole and rifle peripherals. The software is being developed by Piranha Games Inc., a Vancouver based game development company with 10 years experience and 17 shipped titles.
The Hunt and The Strike will be available for Xbox 360, Wii, and PC in fall 2009.
