Just Cause Dev's Open-World Hunting Game Headed To PS4 And Xbox One

Avalanche claims The Hunter: Call of the Wild is the "most immersive hunting experience ever created."


Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios is bringing the PC hunting game that it publishes, The Hunter: Call of the Wild, to Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

The open-world game was originally released last year for PC as a one-time purchase ($30), supported by microtransactions. Presumably, the console edition will follow the same setup. It launches later this year, though a specific date was not mentioned.

Call of the Wild, which is developed by Expansive Worlds and published by Avalanche, features what Avalanche says is the "most immersive hunting experience ever created." Players can hunt all manner of animals, including deer, bears, bison, and birds with a variety of customizable weaponry. The game features weather events, a day/night cycle, and a wind system that carries your scent.

On top of a single-player mode, Call of the Wild includes co-op and competitive modes for up to eight players.

Call of the Wild is a follow-up to The Hunter, which was released in 2009. The Hunter: Primal, an expansion featuring dinosaurs, came out in 2015 on PC.
