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 RF4 and give us feedback 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 have added most of the important features to Russian Fishing 4, and have it released as soon as they are accepted by the player 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 here. Our goal is to make it even more complex and engaging for our players. We will add co-op functionality, team play, as well as more competitive and interactive features soon.”

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 11 water bodies, 80+ 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 already built a large community around the game that participates in our forum and Discord by providing feedback, suggestions, and ideas, and by sharing a lot of in-game information between each other.”

About This Game

With the development of Russian Fishing 4, our team's goal is to create a world capable of conveying our passion for fishing and our love of nature. Be it the anxiously waiting for the bite at dawn when the stars in the sky slowly fade and the birds begin to sing, holding your breath as the rod dangerously bends under the bite of a large predatory fish, or simply cooking the fish you just caught by the campfire – all of this is possible in Russian Fishing 4.
After all, this game is designed by anglers, for anglers.

The main features of the game:

  • At this moment, the game has 11 reservoirs with unique weather conditions and a diverse set of fish.
  • We have more than 80 species of fish, and over time their number will increase.
  • The game allows free movement on the water bodies, with opportunities to fish both from the shoreline, and from a boat.
  • Various types of fishing have been implemented, such as float, bottom, and spinning. Each of them is carefully designed, taking into account real fishing experience and include a variety of equipment and fishing techniques.
  • As in real life, the behavior of fish can vary depending on weather conditions, time of day, and other factors.
  • You are given ample opportunity to develop skills, both relevant to the chosen specialization and in other related areas, including making your lures, harvesting baits, and even cooking.
  • Player and achievement ratings and statistics.
  • Participation in a variety of competitions with valuable prizes.
  • Learning of fish habits
  • Gaining new knowledge to assemble the perfect tackle to catch the trophy you always dreamed of.
  • Catching the monster fish to take your position in the record table.

The Russian Fishing 4 project does not stand still. It is constantly evolving, so we will have to rewrite this text more than once =).
Russian Fishing 4 –Meet you at the water’s edge
