Bassmaster Fishing 2022 is an evolution for sports fishing games, adding new technologies and simulations to deliver an immersive angling experience.

Dovetail Games are thrilled to announce their new partnership with B.A.S.S., the worldwide authority on bass fishing, to create the biggest bass fishing video game ever made, Bassmaster Fishing 2022.

Scott Martin, professional angler and host of ‘The Scott Martin Challenge,’ is working closely with Dovetail Games to help create this exciting new simulation title and will be featured prominently throughout the game and its career modes.  Martin’s story of joining the B.A.S.S. tour and fulfilling his family’s legacy is well known in the fishing world and soon players will be able to see if they have what it takes to become a bass master.

More information about the new technology and features being added to Bassmaster Fishing 2022 to enhance immersion and deliver an authentic angling experience will be announced in the coming months.

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.

Bassmaster Fishing 2022 is coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC (Steam) on October 28, 2021 for $39.99/ €34.99 / £29.99.
