Euro Fishing now on PS4

It’s the one that anglers who love gaming have been waiting for – the launch of Dovetail Games Euro Fishing on PlayStation 4, on April 11!

This is a realistic game, where you can experience the world of carp fishing from your sofa at home, whilst developing your virtual angling skills, and competing against your friends.

With authentic weather conditions and thousands of different combinations for your angling equipment, including the likes of Korda, Delkim and Mainline, it’s like you never left the bank! Whether you are a seasoned angler who can’t wait for your next session, or a complete novice who has never caught a real fish, Euro Fishing has something for everyone.

You might find yourself enjoying the “Freedom Fishing” mode, where you can truly enjoy the exquisite graphics of the game, whilst fishing at your own pace and searching for your next catch. Or perhaps you’ll be competing against your friends and other keen anglers in the “Tournament Fishing” mode, and putting your skills to the test in this intensely competitive contest.

Perhaps you want to catch fish from a lake that you have always dreamed of fishing one day? Well, now you can. Euro Fishing allows its players the chance to master their skills at some stunning locations, with venues such as Digger Lakes and the famous St John’s Lake at Linear Fisheries, that have been recreated in incredible detail - you will be spoilt for choice! You can even target the famous fish at these venues, such as the Big Plated which featured in the Korda Underwater Part 7 film!

Euro Fishing also offers “Total Cast Control”. This is a physics-based system that allows you to feel the whip of the rod and hear the whistle of the lead as you cast in search of your new PB.

To try to ensure that the game is as realistic as possible in terms of the behaviour of the fish, Dovetail teamed up with leading fisheries scientist and Team Korda member, Simon Scott. He provided guidance to ensure that the ‘artificial intelligence’ that the fish in the game use, is as close to the real thing as possible. Tom Dove has provided insight and consulted during the creation of this game from the very start.

Dovetail fishing business director, Mark Greenway, enthused: “We’re delighted to be able to bring Euro Fishing to the PlayStation 4 system.

“We set out to create a fun, authentic, and challenging fishing simulation, and we feel certain that we’ve achieved that, with all the different elements of this popular hobby coming together to make this title a truly realistic experience,’ he added.

Whatever you are searching for in a fishing game, you will find it on Euro Fishing. Copies will be available on Sony PlayStation from April 11, priced at £14.99.
