"Ultimate Fishing Simulator VR" has left Early Access on Steam after more than two months, and the full version is now available for HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Windows Mixed Reality, Valve Index and Pimax. The game can also be played without VR goggles.
The standard (non-VR) version of the simulator debuted in the early access mode in November 2017, and the full version was released in August 2018. Currently, the percentage of positive player reviews is up to 84%, which is one of the best results among all fishing games released on the Steam platform.
The VR edition appeared as a part of Steam Early Access on the Aug. 30. The game offers the same content as the standard edition. People who already have the “normal” version can buy a VR upgrade at a lower price.
The game features 10 locations (fisheries) modelled on real locations, including two fisheries during the winter season and a sea fishery. Players can choose different boats, from yachts to motor boats, and try various fishing techniques – including spin fishing, coarse fishing, fly fishing, fishing at sea, ice and surf fishing – going after dozens of different types of fish – all with photorealistic water and dynamic weather.
“In this case the Early Access phase lasted over two months and during this time ‘Ultimate Fishing Simulator VR’ became appropriately refined. We have expanded and honed VR control systems, and therefore, of course, improved the comfort of players. The list of new solutions includes, among others, support for left-handed players, more comfortable underwater camera movement and numerous performance improvements,” said CEO of Ultimate Games, Mateusz Zawadzki. “At the same time, we would like to thank all the players who shared valuable comments with us during that time, which were useful in working on ‘Ultimate Fishing Simulator’ making the best use of the VR system’s potential.”
Created by the Polish studio Bit Golem and published by Ultimate Games the game will be coming to the Oculus Store and VR Arcade systems in the near future.
