Hunting simulation is brought to new depths with theHunter, a free to play realistic hunting game where players can hunt 22 different animals in various locations inspired by real world reserves.

theHunter pushes the boundaries of in-game depth, immersing players in the thrill of the hunt without actually killing live animals. There’s more to hunting than just finding and shooting an animal, and players in theHunter will be called upon to track, stalk, and even identify animals based on different calls and other evidence.

Set in nine different preserves across the globe, this online shooter actually features 127 animals across 22 species, making variations and encounters nigh uncountable. The environments of theHunter make players feel as though their actually prowling through the dense underbrush, stalking a wild animal.

Players don’t have to go it alone, either, as theHunter can support up to eight players in a hunting party.For gamers interested in hunting but don’t want to leave their homes, theHunter offers a unique FPS experience that cannot be matched.
