Hunting simulators have yet to be as brutally realistic as the just-revealed Ultimate Hunting. In the first official trailer, the simulator surprises with the exciting beauty of hunting reserves in California and Africa. Developed on Unreal Engine 5, Ultimate Hunting will push the boundaries of realism in hunting games, with every decision and every shot meant to be truly felt. The game will offer both single hunter and cooperative hunting modes for up to 16 people. Scheduled for release on PC in 2025/2026, Ultimate Hunting will later hit the Nintendo Switch successor.

A Polish studio of several people, 3T Games, is working on Ultimate Hunting from 2021. The publisher of the game on PC and consoles will be Ultimate Games, which is known, among other things, for its bestselling series of highly rated fishing games Ultimate Fishing Simulator.

Ultimate Hunting is a realistic open world hunting simulator with single and multiplayer game modes (up to 16 hunters at a time), with extensive gameplay including expedition planning, stealth, tracking or baiting. Players will have the opportunity to take on the roles of hunters who, while exploring nature, discover the habits of local animals, select suitable individuals, and admire the richness and diversity of local flora and fauna. The simulator will offer a choice of first-person or third-person perspective (FPP/TPP) view.

The new hunting simulator is being developed on Unreal Engine 5. As a result, hunting on the African savannah or in the sequoia forests of California is expected to become a delightful and unforgettable experience. Ultimate Hunting will also support ray tracing, DLSS and FSR technologies, among others.

Players will hunt in two vast locations – the California Hunting Reserve and the Southern Africa Hunting Reserve. The reserves are modeled on real locations, and the flora and fauna present in them will correspond to the real conditions in these places. Each map will cover an area of at least 64 km2.

As the developers of the game point out, it will be possible to hunt a total of more than 30 different species of animals. In California, these include California black bears, North American cougars, California mule deer, wild boars, American badgers, western crow, California quail, wood ducks and more. In South Africa, on the other hand, hunters will find, for example, African bush elephants, South African giraffes, Cape hippopotamus, southern lions, Nile crocodiles, southern chacma baboons, Burchell’s zebra, Cape ground squirrel and more. At the same time, the animals will be differentiated by gender, age and weight, among other factors.

Ultimate Hunting will offer a wide range of weapons and hunting equipment. The list includes many variants of firearms (bolt-actions, lever-action, semi-auto, shotguns and revolvers) and silent weapons (bows and crossbows), various types of decoys and baits, optical devices, hunting clothing and footwear, as well as vehicles. There will be two aiming modes with the scope (quick scope and full scope). The 3T Games team also promises advanced weapon customization with additional accessories. Ultimate Hunting will not lack licensed hunting equipment, including, for example, Titan 6 rifles from the Austrian brand Rößler Waffen and camouflage from the American brand Next Camo.
