The Discovery Channel has unveiled a game unlike any other, where you'll battle waves that reach 40-feet, ferocious life threatening storms and merciless ice. Yes I'm sure by now you've guessed it, what other possible occupation is there to think about? Crab fishing!
Destined for a port-of-call on PC and the Xbox360, with no PS3 release, Deadliest Catch Alaskan Storm is said to give gamers the chance of experiencing this deadly trade out in the Bering Sea. Crabs and peril - what more could the industry ask for?
With realism and authenticity a big thing for the developers, there are over 34, 000 miles of actual Bering Sea coastline ingame which they created from the US Geographical Survey. The aim of the game is to try and break the real Captain Sig Hansen's achievement of catching twenty million pounds, which you'll do by upgrading your ship, crew and weather the increasing challenges as the seasons unfold.
Deadliest Catch Alaskan Storm is set to be released on the Xbox 360 and PC, this April.
