Fishing: Barents Sea – Complete Edition

Fishing: Barents Sea to be released on consoles in 2019, successor already in development

Moenchengladbach/Germany, August 13, 2019 - Fans of deep sea fishing will be delighted to hear some great news about their favourite simulation game brand today: Fishing: Barents Sea, the iconic fishing and ship simulation game for PC by astragon Entertainment and Norwegian developer Misc Games will be released on consoles later this year. Already included from the start next to the main game will be the Line and Net Ships DLC. The King Crab DLC will follow later in form of a free update. This Fishing: Barents Sea – Complete Edition will offer players the unique chance to captain their very own fishing vessel on Xbox One, PlayStation®4 and a little later this year, also on Nintendo Switch™.

Cast out your net and catch yourself some first impressions of the new console version in the new Fishing: Barents Sea – Complete Editionaccolade trailer today!

In the Fishing: Barents Sea – Complete Edition you will start your career on board of your grandfather’s small but reliable line fishing ship, the Børge. Locate the best fishing grounds in this huge, open game world along the coastline of northern Norway with the help of your ship’s radar, and later in the game, using the originally licensed Scanmar catch system. Make sure to keep an eye on the selling prices of different fish species on the local market and master the many different fishing methods available in the game.

With a little bit of skill and good fortune you will soon be able to exchange the little Børge for larger and larger ships with better equipment until you will be able to afford the gigantic, originally licensed Hermes Trawler. As an alternative, you can put your focus on catching the majestic king crabs and invest your accumulated funds in buying the mighty vessel Svalbard with its huge crab pots and powerful crane to haul in your valuable catch.

No matter which path you choose to follow, with its intuitive controls perfectly adjusted to your needs, the Fishing: Barents Sea – Complete Edition will always offer you an atmospheric and immersive simulation experience.

The Fishing: Barents Sea – Complete Edition will be released in 2019 as a digital download for Xbox One in the Xbox Games Store, for PlayStation®4 in the PlayStation® Store and immediately afterwards for Nintendo Switch™ on the Nintendo eShop. The King Crab DLC will be released a little later in form of a free update.
