Open Country: gameplay trailer and release date on PC, PS4 and Xbox One

Open Country

Open Country, the new hunting game developed by Funlabs, is shown with a gameplay trailer and the official release date, set for June 3 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Announced in March, Open Country boasts an arcade approach and an open world structure that gives players the opportunity to experience an adventure in nature from the comfort of their home.

Thanks to the new trailer, players can observe some novelties of the title, including fishing, vehicles, hiking, and in particular, the presence of a friendly hunting dog.

Open Country puts players in the hiking boots of an all-too-familiar corporate employee who longs for a change from his restrictive life in the city.

Eager to break away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, players and their trusty canine companion are faced with the newfound freedom of being able to explore and survive amidst wild lands and savor the open spaces of their new life.

Open Country, a look at the landscapes of the scenario. Explore

Wander freely among the three hand-crafted environments that will be available at launch, each with its own unique weather system and native flora and fauna. Use an off-road quad bike to traverse the mountainous terrain.

Hunt, fish and survive

Manage supplies, hunt, fish and forage for food and resources, carefully managing your needs and survival amidst the dangers of the wilderness.

Prove your skills

By completing various tasks and missions in the village with Gary from Snowridge Lodge, players will level up and get new weapons and better equipment, which will allow him to undertake missions more difficult, to become Masters of Nature.

Survive the wilderness in Open Country, launching June 3rd on Xbox

Open Country launches for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S via backwards compatibility on June 3rd. The survival game will put your bushcraft skills to the test as you attempt to stay alive in its unforgiving wilderness.Open Country takes players to three massive maps, ranging from meadows to mountains — Mellow Hills, Tumnus Valley, and Snowridge will pit players against the elements as each map represents a different season, and in turn, changes the weather and animals that will be found there. Setting up your camp properly and equipping the correct gear will make all the difference when attempting to survive these biomes. Depending on your location, you’ll be able to access the ATV or snowmobile, allowing you to cover great distances quickly to reach hunting spots, or to take part in time trial activities if that’s what you fancy. The vehicles create a lot of noise, so taking them too close to your hunting spots probably wouldn't be the greatest idea.

Survival in Open Country hangs on your ability to track, hunt, and fish for your meals each day. Look around for tracks that might lead you to big game in hopes of getting a shot on something special. Be careful, though, as the lightest upwind scent or noise could spook your target and leave you hungry. Along with big game, you’ll also find rabbits, birds, and other smaller animals to fill your stomach and that of your dog. Yes, you get a furry friend to help you on your journey, and even follow commands to collect small game or help you track other creatures. If all of the tracking is making you feel tired already then don’t worry — you’ll also be able to sit back and relax on the shore of a lake and fish for your dinner.

Open Country launches on June 3rd for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S via backwards compatibility. You’ll be able to experience the game in a full single-player experience or take to the wilderness in co-op to complete a big game hunt. There will also be a versus mode available, pitting two players against each other in a race to bag the trophy.
