theHunter is a hunter simulation game developed by Expansive Worlds. It is a part of theHunter simulation series and serves as a reboot of the whole series.


No plot whatsoever is present in the game. At the beginning of the game, the players create their own character and complete a tutorial. After that, the players are put into an immersive open world where they can either hunt any animal they find or activate missions, the completion of which grants the players some amount of the in-game currency.

The game's world is resembled by an immense island that features the surroundings of Washington, United States; Australia; France. The game can be played freely, yet only five species are present in its free-to-play version.

While hunting, it is essential for the players to use cover to avoid getting detected by their prey. Each animal has its own specific reaction to the changes in the game's world. Some animals do not sense smells as well as the others, so the players can get to the prey much closer. It is also essential to take the sound you make into account, as it may scare the animal you hunt away.

For hunting several species, it is required to use a specific weapon. The players are free to use bows on any animal they can find in the world, while the game's firearms' calibers have to be carefully picked out by the players, based on the animal.

theHunter reviews and comments

The BEST sim game I've ever played! I initially said, "What's this, animals are hunting at the pc, boring ..." dan played at all. The Free 2 Play version, was very interesting, you could only hunt two animals on a map, but had fun. SO ALS ALL FIRST MAL! HUNTER IS NO FREE 2 PLAY SPIEL!!!! You can only hunt 2 animal species for free, has multiplayer restrictions and has only 1 weapon. HUNTER IS A TO THE TEUE SPE THE ICT KENNE! If you want to play properly, want to use every game function, want to hunt every animal species, with every hunting method are loosely 300-500 € away! Who you want to do it more loosely and just hunt (Search for Clues and loosely whistle), use an all-out weapon and clothes, and always join a Multiplayer game, you have to pay already 30-100 euros! The costs depend, of course, on the player, how seriously he takes it, whether he would rather put on a camouflage clothing in the forest, for example, or have a second weapon, etc ... Almost Every piece of equipment costs real money, weapons, clothing, jolt, consumables etc ... If you want to hunt an animal species you have to buy a license. Licenses can be purchased individually (SOLLTE MAN NOT MACHEN) or all at once with a Premium membership, which is available for 3, 6 or 12 months! Premium allows to open your own multiplayer game, gives one the license to hunt all animals and replenishment infinitely amount of ammunition. The world ranking depends on the Hunterscore, Hunterscor is available for shots of an animal species, kills on a weapon, run track and playing time. There are Missions that can be found at the fulfillment, with the ingamewärcy you can also buy consumer material and selected weapons, but the prices are very high. In Competitions you can compete against other players, who you are successful get the first 3 places a trophy and premium ingame wärung (EMS) (this you have to buy normally with real money). Normal Competitions last 2-4 days and are then changed, so there are not all days of the same competition. For each tier art are usually always available 2-3 competitions, this kan man is set ahead that premium is a member or has a premium membership. Here there are still several classes so that the newcomers are separated from the professionals. The Gameplay is very realistic you have to behave like a proper hunt. It's a lot of fun. By chasing, search for the track, etc., the jagdskill also increases and you get to tell ingame more and more information about the individual animal species, for example, which one observes a hagirsch on a field. It is a long time for weapons, the more kills you kill with a rifle, the calmer it is later in your hands. The variety of weapons is very great, there are bolt action rifles, pump action, nimble, underlever repetiter, front loader, single-loader, semi-automatic getry, automatic pistes, air guns, revolver, pistols, single-source pristole, armust, compoundaval, Long-arches, recurvebögen. From each class there are many under-Shideliche models from the caliber .22 to .50 also 12ga bird-red, slug and rehposten, 20ga, normal arrows, sharp arrows, luminous gauge arrows. There is a clothing with a corresponding camouflage pattern for each card or region. In Addition, there are spezieal clothing that works especially in individual animal types. For almost every animal species there is lock medium. Atrapping, loose-spray, loosely whistling, baiting, etc. There are mobile tents, high-seats, climbing equipment, tarn and bird tents. There's hunting and bluthhounds. To the Maps, the maps are very large, several km ², Every single one! There are outback, swampf, foliage forests, needle forests, mountains, high mountains, pointed, islands and arctic regions. Each card has special animal species that live in special parts of the map. There are working weather. It can be the one at the bottom of a card is sunshine and a thunderstorm is slipping at the top. The Sun and clouds move. A hunt begint un 5 o 'clock and ends at 19 o 'clock, here: 1 hour in the hunter equals 30 real minutes. The Aim of the developers is to bring more than 100 animal species into play and every region that is available on the earth. The game is often expanded. The only negative that comes to mind is that the developers have often inserted errors on updates and they don't fix them until days later. In addition, the support is a bit slow, but helps. If you are looking for a good hunting simulation, the hunter is the place to be.
