Become the pro
When you first jump into game, you’ll be able to play as – or compete against –
10 Elite Series anglers, such as the two-time back-to-back Bassmaster Classic
Champion, Hank Cherry, the 2021 St. Lawrence River Elite Event winner, Takumi
Ito, or our effervescent cover-star Scott Martin.
You can play out your career just like the pros, starting out at the College
Series, and battling your way to Bassmaster immortality – while using awesome
branded equipment like Scott Martin’s Skeeter boat with a hefty 250HP Yamaha
You’ll be taking on multiple tournaments when you start your career. Expect Pro
Challenges, Grand Slam events, and traditional tournaments (where your goal is
to fill the livewell with your 5 biggest bass) are just a few of the events
you’ll need to conquer to make your way to the Bassmaster Classic.
Your path to Bassmaster Champion begins at the bottom: The College Series. This
is where you’ll start your career to get a feel for amateur tournament bass
fishing. Your opponents will be learning the ropes, so expect heated competition
from all manner of wannabe anglers.
Once you vanquish the College Series, it’s time to bring on the big guns: The
Opens. The goal of the Opens to get enough qualifying points to go to the Elite
Series. If you can make it to the Elite Series level, you’ll need to use
everything you’ve learned to finally get that coveted invite to the Bassmaster
Classic: the highlight on any bass angling fan’s calendar.
The Bassmaster Classic is where all your knowledge and experience come into
play. You’ll have to put it all on the line to overcome all other competitors
and become the Bassmaster Classic Champion.
Master the waters
You’ll be fishing 8 real-world venues when you get out on your boat for the
first time. Points of interest, water depths, surrounding vegetation, and fish
species weight are just a handful of things that you’ll have to look out for
when fishing in these iconic venues.
You’ll be fishing through dense swamps on the Sabine River, open waters on Lake
Ray Roberts, or just admiring the views of the Memorial bridge at St. Johns
River. Using the all-new underwater camera, you’ll be able to find points of
interest around the venues where you can catch some truly big bass!
Snagging is something that you need be careful of when you’re out fishing – as,
depending on the environment you’re fishing and the equipment you’re using, you
risk getting your lure snagged up on all manner of underwater dangers: weeds,
wood, rocks, and more.
Our dynamic time-of-day feature means you’ll need to practice fishing all
throughout the day to really master where the hotspots are, and where you have
most success on the water for different species and locations.
The Fish AI in game move around the water depending on temperature, time of day,
whether there are any underwater structures or not – all these things (and
more!) are what you’ll need to master & track if you want to be successful in
The competition is just getting started
Bassmaster Royale is an all-new, cross-play compatible, adrenaline-pumping game
mode coming to the angling genre, where you’ll go head-to-head with other
players to be the last player standing. To stay in the game, you’ll need to keep
your fish weight total above other players, or you risk getting eliminated!
We can’t wait for you to jump and start building your Bassmaster® Fishing 2022
career this October 28th. With so much to do in game, you’ll be spoilt for
choice on where to start!
And don’t forget that after launch on October 28th, we will have loads of
updates and extra content coming to single and multiplayer, so it’s time to get
practicing! Good luck, and tight lines!
