What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“While Russian Fishing 4 is a fully playable game, it is still in the development stage. There are many features that will be added to the game, new content and a wide range of different abilities for the players. We welcome everyone to experience RF4Game and give us their feedback, their take on game mechanics, balance and other topics that influence the game play.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We hope to add most of the important features to Russian Fishing 4 by the end of 2018- early 2019 and have it released as soon as they have been accepted by the players community.”

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

“Currently Russian Fishing 4 has most of the features that a fishing game needs to be interesting, exciting and enjoyable but we don’t want to stop there. Our goal is to make it much more complex and engaging for our players. We will be adding co-op functionality, team play, as well as more competitive and interactive features in the near future.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Russian Fishing 4 is a ready to play game with many different features already available, such as 8 water bodies, 50+ fish species, boats for trolling, competitions, skills and crafting, as well as many different terminal tackle rigs for spinning, float and feeder fishing styles,. We are also constantly updating the game with new content.”

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

“Russian Fishing 4 is a free-to-play game and we intend to keep it that way.”

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

“We have build a large community around the game that participates in our forum and Discord by giving us their feedback, suggestions and ideas and by shearing a lot of in-game information between each other.”

Russian Fishing 4 what's coming with the new update.

Dear Angling Friends,

We would like to present you with new information about the upcoming update of Russian Fishing 4.

It’s not a big secret to most of you that we will be launching a new water body – Belaya river, which will include many familiar fish species and two new ones: Brown trout and Taimen. Belaya river will be accessible to players from level 12 and higher and, we hope, will become a great attraction to low and medium level players who enjoy spin fishing as well as high level players, who would like to test their skill against the mighty predator Taimen.

We also made some big changes to spin fishing in general, making it more attractive and enjoyable. From the very beginning of the game, the player will receive a full spinning set up and will be able to progress through the game using this method, starting at the base water body – Winding Rivulet, that will become accessible from level 1.

All Premium profiles are getting a new feature that will allow them to progress through the game a bit faster without spending too much time doing it. When logging into the game for the first time every day you will receive a bonus for the first hour of play – experience for caught fish and chance to skill progression is doubled (x4 times from the base XP and skill progression chance).

And that’s just a part of what is coming with the new update. We hope that you will like these changes and new additions while we will continue working hard to keep on developing the game.

Tight lines!
