theHunter- Call of the Wild Early Access

Steam now offers early access to theHunter: Call of the Wild, the typo-titled hunting game. This trailer highlights the release, and there are posts about a release patch and a second patch that are already out for the game. Here's word on this from the publisher and the developer:

ďtheHunter: Call of the Wild means a lot to usĒ said Christofer Sundberg, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Avalanche Studios. ďNot only is it the first major title that we self-publish since the launch of theHunter Classic in 2009, itís also the first game to ever be developed using the unique, proprietary Apex engine. The game looks absolutely stunning, and the experience of next-generation open-world hunting is an unforgettable one. We canít wait to share it with our dedicated community.Ē

Julia Pfiffer, CEO astragon Entertainment adds: ďWe are really excited about sharing theHunter: Call of the Wild with all fans of the virtual hunt in cooperation with Avalanche Studios and Expansive Worlds. We are absolutely sure that players will love the immersive gameplay just as much as the lifelike animals and the great variety of usable equipment that will help you trace and catch your prey.Ē

Someone got their facts wrong, as this was NOT released as Early Access.. it's the full retail release. (Although it has the bugs and broken features of an Early Access game.)

Thanks! Still interested in getting this but I'll wait until there are several patches (and likely a sale).

I love to shoot helpless animals. YEEEEEEEEEEEEEHAAWWWW. It makes me feel like a man despite my micro penis when I use a gun that someone way smarter than me made.

Yep, 'cause mankind never killed animals until rich dorks decided to shoot them with guns for entertainment. Rolleyes

I'm strongly opposed to other methods of animal harm too. But the game isn't about that so I didn't feel the need to mention it. And that's a stupid argument anyway, you're trying to justify something because of "other people do it/did it". That kind of reasoning would allowed me to rape, murder and do whatever else humanity does that isn't ethical. Because other people do those things...it makes it all fine

I know right? I guess it would be telling to remind him that humanity is rife with examples. For example, the ancient Assyrians loved to hunt animals for sport. Assyrian king Ashurbanipal [Ash-Er-Ban-Eh-Pool] (687-627 BC) had lions captured, imported and then released. The British Museum and Its Collections states, "the hunt itself was often more of a massacre than a contest."* (page 245, just above paragraph 8) The Assyrians also hunted humans in ruthless warfare. At Nahum 3:1, Bible writer Nahum referred to Ninevah (the Assyrian capital) as a "city of bloodshed," and with good reason. Soldiers played catch with human heads. Ashurbanipal once boasted, "Many captives from among them I burned with fire ... From some, I cut off their noses, their ears, and their fingers ... of many I put out the eyes. I made one pillar of the living, and another of heads."

I think a video game about hunting virtual wild animals is considerably better.

* you can see the Assyrians killing a lion via an Assyrian wall carving on pages 246-247 of the British Museum collection catalog.

So because people hunted for food out of necessity in the past, and because some other people in history were brutal, we should tolerate the animal suffering for sport and to boost someone's ego?

Honestly I'm glad if people play this game instead of going out to kill real animals who don't want to die for someone's misguided sense of pleasure. But what I'm saying is that the people who hunt in real life, this day and age, as massive c**ts.
