Bassmaster Fishing 2022

7 DAYS TO GO

To celebrate the fact we are now only 7 days from launch, here are 7 things you need to know about Bassmaster® Fishing 2022
1 – Our Largest Multiplayer
Not only does Bassmaster Fishing 2022 have by far our largest ever online multiplayer, it also supports cross-play so you can hit the water with your friends, whatever you play on !
Prepare to battle it out in the brand new, highly competitive mode, Bassmaster Royale! Do you have what it takes to be the last angler standing and be crowned the Bassmaster Royale champion?
If you prefer a less high-octane approach to your fishing, why not take to the water with a relaxing Fishing Trip? Relax and hunt down some Legendary fish. You’ll spot other players on the lake too - do they know where the hot spots are? Why find your friends and fish together?
The best bit is, we’re just getting started. Keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming roadmap, where we’ll talk about future content (including any new game modes)! Game Modes & Mastery
2 – Exclusive B.A.S.S. Content
Bassmaster Fishing 2022 is the official video game of B.A.S.S.®, which means you get to experience the true-to-life thrill of progressing up from the Bassmaster College Series, through the Bassmaster Opens and Elite Series and , finally, take on the Bassmaster Classic® to become the Bassmaster Champion!
That’s just the beginning of the Bassmaster fun - we also have the legendary voice of B.A.S.S., Dave Mercer, as well as a vast selection of licenced content including boat wraps and clothing. If you bag the Deluxe Edition as well, you’ll get an exclusive B.A.S.S. rod and reel to boot (as well as loads of other goodies Deluxe Edition), too.
3 – 10 Pro Anglers In Bassmaster Fishing 2022 , you can choose to play as one of our 10 Pro Anglers or…compete against them! We have a fantastic roster of Pro Anglers in Bassmaster Fishing 2022 including, Scott R. Martin, back-to-back, Two-time Bassmaster Classic® winner Hank Cherry, Carl Jocumsen (the first Australian angler to qualify for the Bassmaster Elite Series), and the 2019 angler of the year winner, Scott Canterbury!

4 – Gameplay Fundamentals
In Bassmaster Fishing 2022 , finding the fish, understanding the underwater environments, and using the right gear for the right situation is going to be critical to your success! Thankfully we have some awesome new features to help make life a little easier for you.
Think you’ve found a bass-zilla treasure trove? Use the GPS marker system to drop a pin on that location that will always be there, whenever you fish that lake! In Bassmaster Fishing 2022, you will have an unlimited supply of some of the basic equipment. Once you progress through the ranks, your gear needs to match it. As does your reputation! Thankfully, Bassmaster Fishing 2022 features a sponsorship system. Improve your reputation and social following to approach sponsors and get an unlimited supply of lures from your preferred manufacture!
Sponsors will be crucial in your journey towards lifting the Bassmaster Classic trophy this is largely due to another new feature, Snagging. Snagging your lure on the environment costs not only time but if you snap your line, your lure. You don’t have an infinite supply of lures, rods, reels and even boats so securing a sponsorship will save time and your hard-earned Bass Bucks.
We want the experience of bass fishing to be as thrilling as it is in real life , and we know that, in competition, every second counts. So, we have introduced a feature called Quick Catch. If you can get your bass close enough to the boat you’ll have an opportunity to land that fish quickly - but if you fail, get ready to keep fighting as the risk of losing your catch increases by the second.
5 – 8 Official Venues
Take to the water on 8 real-world Bassmaster venues including Lake Hamilton, Chickamauga Lake, Toledo Bend, St. Johns River, Lake Guntersville, Lake Ray Roberts, Sabine River and St. Lawrence River. All these lakes have been meticulously recreated using detailed mapping data which provides us information like terrain and water depths to make Bassmaster Fishing 2022 the most authentic bass fishing experience ever made.
These lakes are all real lakes used during official Bassmaster events and offer stunning landscapes and environments that change as the day passes to night. And each lake features a diverse variety of fish species to catch!
6 – Fish AI and Movement
There are many variables that will and can affect your outcomes while bass fishing. Temperature, time of day, and environments , to name a few. In Bassmaster Fishing 2022 we have been working closely with freshwater biologists to help make your experience as authentic as possible. Our fish AI system takes multiple factors into account causing the fish to dynamically move around our 8 venues. There are hundreds of paths they might take between our various underwater points of interest! You’ll need to keep moving and work out where the fish are, when, in order to master your craft!
The onboard fish finder will help you get an idea of the population and size of fish swimming around your boat, as well as providing valuable clues as to possible underwater points of interest. We’ve also brought in a very useful underwater camera, which is at your disposal to see what’s going on under the surface, so you can manoeuvre your bait away from snags and towards your catch
7 – Career Mode In Bassmaster Fishing 2022 you’ll have the opportunity to make a name for yourself by climbing the ranks in the official leagues of B.A.S.S. Starting in the Bassmaster College Series , where you’ll get your first experience of tournament style bass fishing, you’ll progress up the ranks and join the Bassmaster Opens where you’ll face off against a huge roster of anglers.
