astragon Entertainment and Misc Games have announced today that they will be bringing their popular PC title, Fishing: Barents Sea, to consoles later this year. More info and a trailer can be found below.
Fishing: Barents Sea – Complete Edition will offer players the unique chance to captain their very own fishing vessel on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and a little later this year, also on Nintendo Switch. After conquering the mighty Barents Sea, fishermen will be excited to discover some vast new fishing grounds in a completely new game of the Fishing brand, Fishing: North Atlantic, which is currently still in development.
In the Fishing: Barents Sea – Complete Edition you will start your career on board of your grandfather’s small but reliable line fishing ship, the Børge. Locate the best fishing grounds in this huge, open game world along the coastline of northern Norway with the help of your ship’s radar, and later in the game, using the originally licensed Scanmar catch system. Make sure to keep an eye on the selling prices of different fish species on the local market and master the many different fishing methods available in the game.
With a little bit of skill and good fortune you will soon be able to exchange the little Børge for larger and larger ships with better equipment until you will be able to afford the gigantic, originally licensed Hermes Trawler. As an alternative, you can put your focus on catching the majestic king crabs and invest your accumulated funds in buying the mighty vessel Svalbard with its huge crab pots and powerful crane to haul in your valuable catch.
No matter which path you choose to follow, with its intuitive controls perfectly adjusted to your needs, the Fishing: Barents Sea – Complete Edition will always offer you an atmospheric and immersive simulation experience.
Once you have achieved everything that is possible for a successful fisherman in the Barents Sea, you will be able to move your business to the North Atlantic in just a few months’ time. As its name already suggests, the brand-new successor to the game series, Fishing: North Atlantic, will be set in a completely new location, and also offer a lot of new and exciting features. Fishing fans can already look forward to another great catch!
The Fishing: Barents Sea – Complete Edition will be released in 2019 as a digital download for Xbox One in the Xbox Games Store, for PlayStation 4 in the PlayStation Store and immediately afterwards for Nintendo Switch on the Nintendo eShop. The King Crab DLC will be released a little later in form of a free update.
