SANTA MONICA, CA– JULY 23, 2010— The hunt is on in Activision Publishing, Inc’s (Nasdaq: ATVI) Cabela’s North American Adventures, coming this September for Xbox 360 ® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation ® 3 and PlayStation ® 2 computer entertainment systems, PSP ® (PlayStation ® Portable) system, and Wii TM . The Wii TM version will be available as a bundle with the TOP SHOT, the hunting peripheral that revolutionized the genre. Cabela’s North American Adventures gives players the opportunity to experience North America’s greatest hunts in over twenty prime hunting locations across the continent.
Cabela’s North American Adventures introduces fresh touches that hunters will appreciate, including a custom gun builder that allows players the ability to create thousands of gun options with a variety of receivers, stocks, barrels, and scopes. The game also capitalizes on the popularity of hunting shows and online videos by adding a cameraman into gameplay– to get compelling footage, hunters need to be at their best! Also, for the first time in franchise history, up to four friends can hunt together online at once (Xbox 360 and PlayStation ® 3). Once the hunt is done, friends can share their scores through online leader boards for bragging rights.
“Cabela’s North American Adventures integrates real world details shared by Cabela’s while focusing on stealth, marksmanship, and mastering a diverse set of hunting skills,” said David Oxford, Activision Publishing.“We’ve refined these core aspects of the sport and added new innovations to extend our franchise’s lead in this genre.”
Arcade-style TOP SHOT shooting galleries add to the fun, where you can collect power-ups to enhance your abilities and score big points. Last year’s hit Wii TM title Cabela’s Big Game Hunter 2010 introduced the TOP SHOT hunting peripheral, and now Cabela’s North American Adventures further integrates it by adding head-to-head multiplayer and refining the arcade-style gameplay to make it even more action packed.
“Activision has proven that they understand what is important to outdoor enthusiasts,” said Bryan Stave of Cabela's.“The approach to Cabela’s North American Adventures is completely original, while improving on what fans of the franchise have come to expect.”
Cabela’s North American Adventures is slated for a September 2010 release. The game is rated T for Teen by the ESRB.
