This new fishing simulator aims to expand into eSports territory

Train Simulator developer Dovetail Games announced a new fishing simulator game by the name of Dovetail Games Fishing, with plans to expand the game into eSports territory, the studio announced on its official website.

The company's upcoming simulation title sees players tackle the full fishing experience by selecting equipment and rigs based on particular types of fishing and objectives, survey the location, prepare gear, and use a new casting and reeling system called "Total Cast Control" where they will test their skills by finding, attracting, catching and landing fish.

The new fishing game will "take advantage of the very latest technologies available to deliver a game that is at the cutting edge of game design, both in visuals and playability," the studio says in a statement. However, there are also plans to bring this to the world of professional gaming.

"Dovetail Games Fishing will be an evolving live service that will grow and expand in ways defined by us in partnership with fishing experts and our community," says creative director Chris Roberts in a prepared statement. "We believe that this combination of technology, team commitment and community involvement will enable us to create the ultimate fishing simulator, which will also allow us expand into the e-sports arena."

The game may also make use of virtual reality technology to give players a more realistic experience of stalking, casting and landing fish.

Dovetail Games Fishing launches later this year for Windows PC, with more formats to follow.
