Euro Fishing for PC, PS4 and XONE is a professional fishing simulator which tries to recreate the experience of fishing in as realistic way as possible. The title was developed by Dovetail Games, a studio that is very experienced in creating simulators. The team previously created the Train Simulator series (at first known as RailWorks). The greatest fishing experts from all over the world were invited to help in developing the game – among them there were Simon Scott and the Korda company.
After completing the long yet very useful tutorial the player is moved by one of five faithfully recreated European lakes located, among other places, in France, England and Spain. Each lake has more than a dozen of fishing positions and, thanks to different properties, can provide unique experiences both for novice and advanced fishermen who prefer different fishing styles. During the game the player can fish a few fish species among which the dominant ones are various types of carp.
The developers put much effort into making the game as realistic as possible. This resulted in, among other things, a special Total Cast Control system which provides the experience of realistic throwing of the fishing rod. Many other fishing simulators lack similar system. The developers also provided advanced artificial intelligence of the fish, a day and night cycle and dynamically changing weather conditions (rains, winds, temperature). Thanks to the above each game is more interesting and each duel between the fisherman and the fish can be unique. In order to succeed, the player must not only learn the specifics and unique traits of each lake, but he must predict the behavior of fish by using various fishing techniques as well. Just like every other simulator, Euro Fishing for PC, PS4 and XONE provides great variety of equipment to use. The player can choose from various fishing rods, baits and other pieces of equipment. Various parts can be freely selected which can lead to even one thousand possible combinations.
Euro Fishing for PC, PS4 and XONE can be played alone or together with other players. The developers created two slightly different multiplayer modes. The first one is a classic multiplayer in which the player can invite users from all over the world and observe and compare fish caught in real time. The second mode, called Live Tournament, allows the players to participate in live online tournaments that are available only for a limited amount of time.
The PC, PS4 and XONE version of Euro Fishing has high quality graphics. Locations that are rich in details are especially worth mentioning. The visuals of the game are powered by Unreal Engine 4, an advanced graphics engine that was also used in, among other games, the flagship title of the developer – Train Simulator 2016.
