Fishing Sim World, ‘Pro Tour’ update

Fish against angling champions Scott Martin and Ali Hamidi and fulfil your dream of becoming the world’s best thanks to the latest feature-packed release from Fishing Sim World: Pro Tour, available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.

The brand new career mode feature will bring over 100 of the best professional anglers from bass, carp and predator fishing, for you to compete against and ultimately beat in your pursuit of becoming the number one ranked elite angler in the world. Choose your path from bass, carp or predator tournament series or master all three. Gain career earnings and social media followers as you progress from amateur to elite and unlock sponsorship opportunities from over 50 licensed partners.

Players will need all their skills to successfully locate and then catch 29 different species of fish – each exhibiting different real-world behaviors, with barbel, channel catfish, rainbow and brown trout being new to this update. Three brand new venues including established tournament destinations, Lake Guntersville and Lake Travis have been added to give 10 unique lakes overall. Hundreds of items of equipment from major brands including Evinrude, 13 Fishing and Korda will help you successfully locate and catch the 250+ trophy fish that await.

New custom multiplayer allows you to set the rules when competing online. Choose from a wide range of options such as weather conditions, scoring method and time limits. Take part in online tournaments and the ‘Dovetail Fishing League’ where you compete in weekly tournaments for coveted rewards.
