Last year’s Cabela’s Dangerous Hunts 2011 release was one of the more surprising PlayStation Move titles. We never would’ve guessed that the game would have offered a deep storyline and survival horror styled gameplay, but that’s exactly what we got. Top it off with a smart PlayStation Move integration that functioned better than the title's pack-in Top Shot Elite peripheral and we were nothing less than pleased with the end result.
We’ve known for a while now that we’d be doing some serious hunting this year in Cabela’s Big Game Hunter 2012, to finally land that trophy mount with the PlayStation Move Sharp Shooter resting on our shoulders, but this isn’t the only game that Cabela’s is bringing us this year, as Cabela’s Survival: Shadows of Katmai is primed up for launch in North America on 1st November.
This new series builds on the storytelling found in Dangerous Hunts 2011, but instead of being the hunter or hunted you’ll be taking control of bush pilot Logan James as he’s involved in a terrifying plane crash in the wilds of Alaska. With no chance of rescue, it’s up to you to guide him through the frigid lands of the Alaskan wilderness, facing not only the deadly environments, but creatures that call it home as well.
After last year’s Dangerous Hunts title, we’re excited to take on the challenge in this new Cabela’s series, and as you can see in the trailer below the game is shaping up quite nicely as well.
