It's in our sights

It's double-Cabela's-news-day here at Movemodo: first we find out that Cabela's Survival: Shadows of Katmai is coming to Move, now we have a launch trailer for Cabela's Big Game Hunter 2012. It never rains but it pours.

The Move-enabled animal-shooter launches across North America on this very day, so it's the perfect time to stoke up your bloodlust with footage of the kind of animals you'll be shooting.

Last year's Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2011 wasn't bad: here's hoping this year's effort can go one better.


The World’s Greatest Hunting Franchise is Back and More Fun than Ever!

Minneapolis, MN – September 27, 2011 – Activision Publishing, Inc.’s (Nasdaq: ATVI) Cabela’s Big Game Hunter 2012 is available now and packed with global adventure. Featuring a large expanse of diverse terrain, plenty of great gear and the wildest animals yet, the game will sink its teeth into players and never let go! Cabela’s Big Game Hunter 2012 is available with the popular Top Shot Elite peripheral to deliver gamers a more realistic experience.

“Activision and Cabela’s have come together again to bring players the finest virtual hunting experience,” said David Oxford, Executive Vice President of Activision Publishing. “We hope hunting and gaming fans alike will enjoy the finer details we put into the game like realistic animal behaviors and the unprecedented choices in direction never before seen in a Cabela’s hunting game.”

Cabela’s Big Game Hunter 2012 includes more choice than ever as player’s decisions affect every hunt as they choose their path, exploring all kinds of different environments. For example, players can climb an area to get a better angle for the shot or take a low elevation route with poor visibility but plenty of concealment. The innovation doesn’t end there though as the game ups the ante with the most realistic animals ever seen in the Cabela’s series. Every animal’s unique movement gives clues on what they will do next. It’s like they can see, hear and smell you.

Cabela’s Big Game Hunter 2012 offers some of the coolest hunting rifles and shotguns available. Players always have access to the right gear as they purchase upgrades, producing visible strengths and weaknesses for each situation. Having the best stuff is only part of the equation though as players will have to master advanced shooting techniques such as accounting for wind direction and bullet drop.

Cabela’s Big Game Hunter 2012 is out now on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Wii™ from Nintendo. The game is available either bundled with the innovative Top Shot Elite wireless controller on Xbox 360 and PS3 and a peripheral on Wii, or it can also be purchased separately. This game is rated T for Teen by the ESRB. For more information please visit and follow on Twitter and Facebook - @ActivisionHunts –
