Infogrames Goes Hunting

by Rainier on July 23, 2002 @ 2:12 a.m. PDT

Infogrames has announced two additional titles to round out their outdoor sports lineup for Fall 2003. Bird Hunter 2003 and Trophy Hunter 2003 will compliment the previously announced Deer Hunter 2003.
"Infogrames is the leader in the outdoor sports genre with more than five million gamers already hunting with us," said Dennis Davidson, marketing manager at Infogrames' Minneapolis studio. "Both of these titles feature a new next generation outdoor terrain engine creating more detailed environments making the hunt the most realistic than ever."

Over the course of the hunt, in Trophy Hunter 2003 the skills of the hunter progressively develop. From the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of New Mexico to the Alaska Peninsula, players track elk, mountain goat, bighorn, mountain lion, wolf, caribou, moose and bear. Providing the ultimate hunting experience, Trophy Hunter 2003, developed by Southlogic Studios, allows players to use a variety of skills including tracking, hardiness and stealth among others.

In Bird Hunter 2003, developed by Sunstorm Interactive, virtual hunters use a sophisticated GPS/ mapping system to hunt 24 species of birds including turkey, upland birds, and waterfowl. Hunting in all types of weather conditions, players will have a wide variety of equipment to choose from such as vehicles, bird calls, decoys, blinds, binoculars, different gauged guns and shell types. Players can even create their own firearms.

Slated for an October release, Bird Hunter 2003 and Trophy Hunter 2003 will ship at a suggested retail price of $19.99.
