The Pike Fighting Update is out now!

Our second update for Fishing Sim World has now been launched on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Again, your input has been invaluable on our forums or through reviews and social media channels.

This update focusses primarily on bug fixes but here are the highlights;

· Improvements

  • Improved the pike fighting. Bigger pike have more energy and the fight takes longer
  • New ripples and water foaming to indicate a fishes location (fish tells)
  • Improved weather conditions and effect of conditions to the environment on all venues
  • Ensured trees appear more ‘crisp’ and less blurry over distance on all venues
  • The character now gets wet when it rains in game
  • Decreased the number of fish tells on Grand Union Canal
  • Improved collision on water features such as rocks to stop fish swimming through them
  • Improved collision between players in multiplayer
  • Improved collision between the players boat and reeds in the water

· Bug Fixes

  • Fixed crash related to those players who purchased the Sunline Siglon PE 30lb line.

▪ IMPORTANT: For those players who created a tackle box using the Sunline Siglon PE 30lb line between 1st Patch and 2nd Patch the game will no longer crash when viewing the item or attempt to go onto a lake. However, it will crash if you go into the lake and equip the faulty tacklebox. To fix this issue, delete your tackle box containing the affected line after the Pike Fighting Update patch installs
