Cabela’s, the retail chain specializing in hunting, fishing, camping and other outdoor activities that gamers are too busy pushing buttons to participate in, has been releasing their Big Game Hunter series since the late-90s. Armed with a trailer decked out in the finest of faux hunting parephenalia and foliage, they came by GamesRadar headquarters today to show off their latest installment in this popular series as well as the new title under the Cabela’s umbrella, Survival: Shadows of Katmai.
Survival intends to broaden its horizons outside of their typical hunter audience by focusing on story and different aspects of gameplay besides shooting wild animals. With a plane crash landing into a trailer made up to look like a forest, Cabela’s is emphasizing the leap that Survival will take beyond their stable of already solid hunting games.
Check out the photos and be on the lookout America. The Cabela’s Trailer of Huntin’ & Shootin’ Survival Fun (a title we made up ourselves) is slated to roll across the country to give those of us with itchy trigger fingers and a hankering for digital venison a chance to try out both games. Cabela’s Big Game Hunter 2012 will be released September 27, 2011 while Cabela’s Survival: Shadows of Katmai will be out November 1, 2011.
