Overview

The Hunter is a hunting FPS, developed and published by Expansive Worlds. Players can enjoy a free version of The Hunter for unlimited time. A subscription is required to access the full game but, The Hunter offers a decent amount of free content. The Hunter is one of the most realistic hunting games and is quite unique in its niche. It has been very well received by hunting fans and gaming publications. Although The Hunter is not a MMOFPS, it does have a social network for players. The Hunter players can interact using the message system and forums. Each player has its own profile that can be personalized. A profile displays character info and achievements. Leaderboards rank best The Hunter players.

One feature that made The Hunter such a popular game is its realism. In search for their preys, players travel parts of USA, Canada and Germany. All locations are open world and allow great freedom of movement. The Hunter zones are worth exploring. The most common game is the mule deer. The Hunter also has other animals that can be hunted: boars, moose, bears, coyotes, pheasants and many more. Some animals must be unlocked with premium subscription. Hunting techniques depend on weather conditions and landscape. For instance, some animals can smell hunters. In this case, players must carefully position themselves in the wind direction. Rain and fog also influence an animal's behavior. Some animals have a high sense of hearing and can hear approaching hunters. The Hunter has a day/night cycle. Camouflage is very important for a successful hunting session. Players must use natural conditions and environment to hide their presence. The Huntermate is a device that allows players to find animals. For the element of surprise, animal spawns can also be random. The Hunter has a good selection of hunting weapons. If, for some reason, you don't want to kill animals there is the option to shoot pictures with an in game digital camera. Unfortunately, The Hunter is missing MMO FPS specific features like co-op missions.

There aren't many visual customization options for The Hunter characters. Players can choose a picture for their avatar and also a name. The Hunter characters are differentiated by skills and achievements rather than looks. Players are tasked with quests. As they advance through the game world, more areas and quests with increased difficulty become available. NPCs are also present in The Hunter world. Players upgrade their weapon skills and hunting skills. The more you use a weapon, the faster that certain weapon skill will improve. There is no other way to become a good hunter than practice. Just like in MMO games, the official The Hunter website lists players' profiles along with updated statistics.
