Hey, you! Yes, you! Do you want to be a landlubber your whole
life? Or maybe you dream of making a fortune, sailing dangerous seas and
learning the secrets of king crab catchers? Are you not afraid of risk, storms
and crab claws? If you are brave enough, come with me to Dutch Harbor!
For a few days every year, experienced crab catchers and greenhorns brave the
elements side by side, putting their health and life on the line. The goal is to
earn a fortune and become known as the best crab catcher. Now you can become one
In Deadliest Catch: The Game you will compete in dangerous sea rallies to catch
more crabs than you ever thought possible. The task is not simple – it is a
battle against time, fishing quotas, crab migrations, and most importantly: the
sea. Such is your fate on the Alaskan waters!
Your ship is no different from those that sail from Dutch Harbor every fall to
seek a fortune in the marine abyss. You will conn your vessel in all conditions:
breeze or gale, no storm can scare you, however terrifying it may look. The
troubled sea, the soaked ship deck, the vessel floating on the waves - and you
to overcome it all!
At your disposal, we leave not only this fishing vessel, but also all the
onboard equipment - the crane, the winch, the launcher, and the coiling system.
We will teach you to use them, step by step. Remember, no-one was born with the
rudder - or a crab - in their hand. However, you will manage the vessel by
yourself - as captain and fisherman at the same time. All devices are handled by
you in the first-person mode to have the best view of everything happening on
your boat. You will also get original crab pots - thanks to them you will be
able to pick out all the crabs from the vastness of Bering Sea.
Remember that you must follow Alaskan law. Not all crabs can be caught and sold!
A realistic 3D model will help you judge whether you have caught a handsome and
expensive male, a protected female, or a baby. Analyze the water and seabed to
better predict where crabs may be found.
Nature will not be your only opponent. Match your skills against the computer
and other players! Invite your friends to compete for the title of the best crab
catcher. Load your pots on board, sit at the controls of your ship and see which
one of you is the fastest and most effective in catching your crab fortune from
the bottom of the sea!
