The video game, Fishing Planet, launched today for Xbox One and Windows 10 and it’s completely free for anyone to play on both platforms.

The game, as its title suggests, is a fishing game that lets players fish on a lake during different seasonal conditions and times of day.

Fishing Planet is impressively detailed with rods, lines, and reels that can break according to their actual specifications, lures and retrieves that act differently depending on the environment, and dynamic weather conditions.

Here’s the official game description:

Fishing Planet is a unique and highly realistic online first-person multiplayer fishing simulator developed by avid fishing enthusiasts for anglers to bring you the full thrill of actual angling! Choose your lures, make your trophy catches, discover new possibilities and sharpen your real angling skills anywhere, anytime with your friends!

The game is FREE to play and just a download away!

Fishing Planet isn’t just another game about fishing. Stunning eye-candy graphics, superb hydro and aerodynamics, realistic tackle behavior and damage based on actual simulation physics and, most importantly, fish with artificial intelligence for completely lifelike behavior make this a true-to-life fishing simulator that can help you improve your actual angling skills! The combination of unique graphics, realistic game physics and sophisticated AI will bring the realistic world of fishing directly to your screen!

Fishing Planet supports online multiplayer with up to 64 players and also plays in 4K Ultra HD when played on an Xbox One X console. The game is an Xbox Play Anywhere title which means that game progress can transfer between the Xbox One and Windows 10 versions.
