Hunting video games often get a bad rep because they are essentially about killing various animal species. Doesn’t matter you’ve got a permit, at the end of the day, you’re still the one blasting a family of cute deer away for your personal entertainment. In A Ranger’s Life, the latest Hunting Simulator 2 DLC that was developed with next-gen console versions in mind, our proud member Neopica shows a different side of hunting life.
In this story mode you fill the boots of a Colorado park ranger that’s tasked with protecting the wildlife. Yes, you’ll venture out into the wilds with your trusty canine friend again, but this time you’re tracking animals to help them. Using a mission-based structure, you’ll save them from poachers, collect samples and battle invasive species to preserve the natural beauty of your reserve. You will never look at Hunting Simulator 2 with the same eyes.
That’s not to say the next-gen versions haven’t improved the original hunting experience. From the damp riversides of the Czech forests to the burning rocks of the Chihuahuan desert, the natural environments have never looked better. Same goes for all the official hunting gear you have at your disposal to track, pin down, and ultimately kill your prey.
Whether you’re a player that likes a more structured approach or you value the liberty of carving out your own path, the next-gen update of Hunting Simulator 2 offers something to like for any kind of hunting enthusiast.
