The Hunter: Call of the Wild is an immersive open-world hunting game. It’s a beautiful game, with some of the most beautiful scenery I’ve ever seen in a game.

The game has become very popular due to not being many other titles that have taken on the hunting genre so ambitiously. It was released on February 16, 2017, and is available on PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One.

You can play it as a single-player game or go hunting with friends in multiplayer mode.

However, the game is cross-gen (through backward compatibility for now), allowing players within the same console platform to play the game together.
