Gold Rush: The Game will be available starting with May 28

For all the fans of the more than popular Gold Rush series, that airs on the Discovery Channel, this game will take their passion for the TV show to a whole new level.

Horizon Inc. has partnered with Discovery Inc. and made this all possible. So, starting with May 28, Gold Rush: The game and the DLCs will become available for players everywhere, on Xbox Series X|S.

Basically, as you can already imagine, its all about digging gold, using advanced machinery and taking care of your mining company.

In this very realistic gold mining simulation game you start with a simple bucket or hog pan and work your way up to sitting behind the wheels of multiple, highly detailed vehicles.

Compete against players around he world in the ranked mode

If you consider yourself to be a competitive player, Gold Rush has a little something for you. The ranked mode will allow you to compete against other gold prospectors from all around the world.

Note that one season typically lasts about a month in real life, so you have plenty of time to race against each other.

The challenge will become even greater once the unique buffs or obstacles are applied, in order to make the experience more engaging.

Managing to be on of the Top 10 players at the end of each mining season will, of course, earn you special in-game rewards.

Either you choose the easy playstyle, which will make everything cost $1, or the harder ranked mode, we are sure you will get a kick out of this fun game.
