Way of the Hunter is just a few days away from release and the latest trailer went all out, explaining why this hunting sim might be a good one for you.

Hunting simulator games are pretty rare nowadays and even when they do come out, they might end up being arcadey. Way of the Hunter aims to break all the rules and provide players with a proper hunting experience, without compromising the realism part too much, which is explained in the trailer below.

The hunting grounds are some of the biggest features WotH has to offer. They consist of the hunting grounds in the Pacific Northwest, where the Bear Den Ranch is located, as well as Transilvania, which serves as the prime hunting grounds in Europe.

As Ubisoft taught us countless times before - a beautiful world doesn't do the trick if it's not filled with anything interesting. Thankfully, Way of the Hunter is brimming with life as it simulates daily routines for both flora and fauna across the map.

For example, animals will have their feeding, watering and resting grounds, which should sound familiar for any actual hunters who are keeping an eye on this game.

Additionally, the game will simulate ballistics based on the wind direction, distance and the power of a player's firearm. A shotgun's scattershot will have its own advantages when hunting birds but you might want a few additional joules a bolt-action rifle can provide if you are facing a bear.

Players will also be challenged with animals that respond not only to the visual line of sight but also to sounds in their surroundings and the player's scent, should the wind carry it to them.

Way of the Hunter is set to release on August 16, 2022.
