What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We decided to go with Early Access to get the players involved in the development. Players of hunting game genre are very passionate, so getting feedback early will allow us to make the best game possible.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Predicting game development times is really difficult but we aim to release the game as soon as possible. We have a clear development roadmap but the actual release time depends on the development, features and content we get to make.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will have more animals, weapons, items, features and any reasonable content suggested by the community. Optimizing performance will also be a top priority.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version has one mostly finished 4x4km open map with six unique animal species: red deer, European hare, wild boar, fallow deer pheasants and red fox. Each species has unique behavior, custom models, hunting mechanics, rare fur types and multiple sets of antlers. We have animal taxidermy and trophy mounts with one of a kind feature where you can freely place your trophy animals in the lodge and make it your own! The game has five different weapons with different ammo / arrow types, several hunting items and unlockable trophy statues. Extensive tutorial, shooting range and archery range are also included.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game will be cheaper during early access than full version. However, the price might go up as we add more features and content to the game.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Community will be directly involved in the development and can provide us feedback, suggestions and bug reports in Steam forums and our Discord server. We are more than happy to hear from our players and make the game better together.”

About This Game

Prepare for a hunting experience of a lifetime. Virtual Hunter brings realistic hunting to virtual reality. The game offers a large, open hunting ground where you will find animals such as the majestic red deer, the elusive European hare, wild boar and fallow deer roaming freely in the wilderness. So pack your gear, master the realistic weapon handling and ballistics at the range and then head out into the open wilderness!

Your hunt

Select your weapons, pack your other essential equipment, set the time and then step out into the wilderness. Track animals, use hunting towers or follow your intuition and see what you find. How you decide to hunt is totally up to you! Each hunt is always a new adventure and seeing as you get a fresh spawn of animals each time, a new challenge!

Steady your aim

With our weapon stabilization system, you can make very accurate shots, even at longer distances. Taking a clean shot is important, the animal will go down faster and save you a long tracking job!

Unique wildlife

Each animal has their own unique behavior, making them challenging and interesting to hunt. With their senses they can see, smell and hear you so approach with caution. Big trophy animals have keener senses, making them much harder but also more rewarding to hunt. Using the right weapon or ammo will give you full integrity and better rewards.

Taxidermy and trophy mounts

Virtual Hunter includes a one of a kind trophy mount system, where players can freely place their taxidermied trophies around the lodge! You can choose different wall mounts, full body mounts and table mounts for small game. Each animal has several different poses to choose from. Do you want to place your highest scoring red deer over the fireplace or by the door? The choice is yours!

Show your trophies

You can unlock different trophy statues by taking down big animals with the correct weapon or ammo type. There are four different trophy ranks for every animal and each animal has different fur types. These trophies will even keep track of your personal best!
