As players compete, they will experience eight diverse venuescrafted to accurately recreate the depths, fish species, native vegetation and local points of interest, earning in-game Bass Bucks to unlock different types of lures, tackle, rods and more so they can bring the right equipment for each unique venue.
Adding a new twist to multiplayer, the game will pit players against each other in the Bassmaster Royale multiplayer mode.
