STOCKHOLM – December 1, 2020 – Expansive Worlds, a creative division within Avalanche Studios Group, is excited to announce Te Awaroa National Park, the all-new DLC for the immersive hunting game theHunter: Call of the Wild, releasing December 10 on PC (Steam), with PlayStation®4 and Xbox One versions arriving in early 2021.
Nestled at the foot of the Southern Alps, Te Awaroa National Park is inspired by the vast, breathtaking landscapes of the South Island of New Zealand – a coastal paradise and home to some of the best hunting locations in the country. Te Awaroa National Park features eight species of animals to hunt (four of which are new to the game), a powerful new F.L. Sporter .303 bolt action rifle, numerous unique landmarks, and 16 new story missions for players to explore.
“Home to iconic scenery such as steep alpine peaks, lush forests and sparkling beaches, Te Awaroa National Park has something in store for everyone,” said Sacha Karsenty, Product Owner at Expansive Worlds. He continued, “Inspired by the community's passion, we're excited to welcome players to a part of the world that has yet to be explored in the game, and we can’t wait to see this next chapter in theHunter: Call of the Wild unfold.”
- New and Diverse Wildlife – There are eight species of animals that roam Te Awaroa’s diverse environments. Players will be able to hunt not only the prized Sika Deer and sought-after Feral Pigs, Feral Goats, and Chamois, but also Red Deer, Turkey, European Rabbits, and Fallow Deer.
- Trace the Trails of History – From the first Polynesian settlers to the hardy helicopter pilots who took on great personal risk to preserve the reserve's unique biodiversity, Te Awaroa is full of history. Reflected in 16 new story missions, you’ll deal with local menaces, patch things up between old friends, and discover the truth behind a long-forgotten legend.
- Hunters Paradise – Stretching across a vast 25 square miles (64 square kilometers), Te Awaroa National Park is full of charming areas to explore. Watch the landscape shift before your very eyes as you carefully trek across the terrain, or pause for a second and take in its magical surroundings.
- Share the Experience –You’re able to hunt in Te Awaroa National Park even if you don’t own the DLC by joining someone in multiplayer who does. This will give you access to everything except the narrative missions.
Hunters can purchase the Te Awaroa National Park DLC on PC (Steam) on December 10 for €7,99/$7.99. New and returning hunters can get access to the ultimate hunting experience with theHunter: Call of the Wild 2021 Edition, which includes the base game and multiple DLCs, for €64,99/$64.99.
