Bass Fighting Update Out Now!

The latest update for Fishing Sim World is now available across all platforms. Highlights of this update include improved bass fighting with the bass diving deeper during the fight (and the controller vibrating appropriately) meaning that line tension will increase and you will need to react and adjust the drag accordingly - rod position, drag setting, line choice and hook set quality are now more important than ever! Also featured is a second fish finder at the front of your boat to be used in conjunction with the trolling motor.

Full update notes are below;

  • Improved bass fighting – when the bass dives deeper when hooked, line tension will increase and you need to respond accordingly
  • Second fish finder at front of the boat to be used in conjunction with trolling motor
  • Vibration added during the fish fight
  • Adding a sliding scale of vibration through the controller rather than simply on or off
  • Improved the targeting of fish species by improving how different species of fish react to different types of lures and baits
  • Improved water splash effects when using a top water lure
  • Added collision between the character and fishing line
  • Ensured that fish in Gigantica can be caught around the margins of the lake
  • Increased the number of catfish in Waldsee
  • Reduced the frequency of bites on Manor Farm Lake
  • Added catfish as an eligible species to score points in predator tournament on Manor Farm Lake
  • Improved camera angles when reeling in and using the trolling motor

  • Fixed line getting stuck in the boat when casting out
  • Improved collision on Lake Boulder and Lake Williams
  • Fixed ‘Switch casting method’ prompt appearing after teleporting to different area of lake whilst in casting state
  • Made trolling motor UI visible in ‘partial HUD’ setting option
  • Various localisation fixes

The next update for Fishing Sim World will be available soon after the Bass Fighting Update. This update will focus on multiplayer issues and includes;

  • General stability improvements
  • Fixed streaming issue for clients that can cause a crash
  • Added texture optimisation to stop MP crash for Clients
  • Fixed issue where fish would take longer to net on multiplayer client than host or single player.

About This Game

Fishing Sim World is the most authentic fishing simulator ever made, taking you around the world on an angling journey like no other. Feel the adrenaline rush of landing trophy largemouth bass and the thrill of fighting huge carp and monster pike as Fishing Sim World perfectly combines realistic game physics and accurate fish AI for an authentic fishing experience that will have you hooked from the start.

Your angling skills will be tested to the limit as you explore two vast USA bass lakes set in Florida and upstate New York and five European locations, including France’s famous Gigantica Main Lake and even a challenging stretch of the UK’s Grand Union Canal.

Go after eighteen different species of fish with hundreds of items of equipment including licensed tackle from some of the biggest names in fishing such as: Bass Cat Boats, Rat-L-Trap, Duckett Fishing and Korda. Use your boat’s GPS and sonar to locate bass before choosing the right tactics to successfully catch them.

Using advanced AI and fish behavioral systems, each species behaves differently - reacting to water temperature and bait choice – so you will have to choose your strategy carefully to land your prey. Fish at your own pace, find your perfect setup, then challenge yourself to land the best catch.

Fishing Sim World reflects the competitive element of this great sport, allowing you to take part in live tournaments against opponents from around the world with the aim of becoming a Fishing Sim World champion! Players can also opt to fish with friends in 4-player multiplayer, comparing catches on real-time leaderboards.
