Fishing Sim World: Lake Arnold Out Now

Based in Tennessee and covering over 1400 acres, Lake Arnold is the third add-on lake for Fishing Sim World.

Covering 1400 acres, this venue provides plenty of choice for where to fish. The residential buildings and jetties will give an urban feel to areas of the lake which is contrasted by the reeds and standing timber found elsewhere. This coupled with the changes in weather will mean that you need to vary your approach each time you enter the lake, mixing up your tackle and finding a new spot to catch those trophy fish.

There are 10 species each with their own specimens for you to catch. They are:

  • Spotted bass over 11lbs
  • Largemouth bass over 14lbs
  • Smallmouth bass over 11lbs
  • Walleye up to 25lbs
  • Bluegill up to 3lbs
  • Yellow perch over 2lbs
  • Northern pike up to 24lbs
  • Chain pickerel over 7lbs
  • Black crappie over 4lbs
  • White crappie over 5lbs

January Update Out Now

Our next update for Fishing Sim World, ‘The January Update’ is now available across all platforms. Full notes are below;
  • Reduced the duration at the start and end of reeling to make it feel more responsive
  • When loading into a lake the map won't be blurry anymore for the first couple seconds
  • Players will now have one, 1 hour attempt for lakes they don't own in live events
  • Added in sounds for boat collision
  • Increased the variables in AI anglers scores based on their skill level so AI positions in leaderboards are more random
  • Localised text improvements
  • Added ability to delete a tackle box when editing your own ones
  • Fixed line physics when casting long distances
  • Fixed issue where lure would still create splashes on the surface even when a fish is on it
  • Fixed issue where fish won't be netted if using a long rod by increasing the netting distance
  • Fixed clothing customisation not correctly applied in the shop

The update following on from ‘The January Update’ is well underway and current highlights for this are as follows;
  • Added mechanism to allow fish to leap. Bass behaviour is set up so that it can now leap out of water. Bass diving behaviour has now been rebalanced to work with leaping.
  • Improved line tension behaviour when fighting bass
  • Improved collision issues with boats in particular being able to steer the boat when applying throttle when stuck
  • Boat glides to a stop when turning rather than immediately stopping when switching from trolling to fishing
  • Fixed characters being able to enter a boat when fishing from a jetty
  • Ensured the sound of striking into a fish is heard correctly when bass fishing
  • Improved ambient audio
  • Ensured you cannot interact with other people’s line on a boat in multiplayer
  • Localisation improvements

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.
