Lake Hartwell Venue DLC video game released in celebration of 2022 Bassmaster Classic
An update for the video game Bassmaster Fishing 2022 has been released in celebration of the Academy Sports + Outdoors Bassmaster Classic presented by Huk scheduled for March 4-6 at Lake Hartwell.
Competing in the iconic Bassmaster Classic is a dream of every aspiring angler. While only a select few will compete at Lake Hartwell, now any player can enjoy the thrill of competition and fight their way to an in-game championship with the new Lake Hartwell DLC.
Bassmaster Fishing 2022 is available in a 2022 Bassmaster Classic update bundle for new players which includes the game and the Lake Hartwell DLC for a discounted price. Built to recreate the experience as closely as possible, including matching water temperatures, depths and fish behavior, the dynamic time-of-day system sets the perfect mood for a Classic competition, altering lighting and shadows across the lake for a more immersive experience.
“Dovetail Games got off to a great start with Bassmaster Fishing 2022, and their passion for bass fishing is present throughout the game,” said B.A.S.S. Vice President of Tournaments Chris Bowes. “We are excited to see how they bring the Bassmaster Classic to life for gamers and bass fishing fans and help people experience the joys of big bass fishing however they can.”
The update also includes support for the Bassmaster Classic three-round tournament structure and adds new “Legendary” named fish for players to track and catch.
The Lake Hartwell Venue DLC is available for purchase on PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Windows PC via Steam, with a limited-time discount ending March 3 on Steam and March 17 on PlayStation and Xbox consoles.
