theHunter: Call of the Wild Unveils Aussie Outback Adventure with ‘Emerald Coast Australia’

Prepare your gear for Kangaroos and Crocs - Expansive Worlds announces a wild new hunting destination down under.

We’ve got some ripper news from Expansive Worlds, the imaginative team within the Avalanche Studios Group, for fans of the engrossing open world hunting game, theHunter: Call of the Wild. They’ve pulled the curtain back on their next premium DLC map and it’s a corker – Emerald Coast Australia.

Straight from the source in Stockholm, this eagerly awaited new hunting location promises a diverse open world chock-a-block with life, 14 different animal species – featuring Aussie favourites like Kangaroos and Crocodiles – and a bunch of fresh side and story missions. As if that wasn’t enough, they’re also launching the new Zagan Varminter .22-250 bolt-action rifle.

We’re talking subtropical bushlands, tropical rainforests, and the vast expanses of the Australian outback. We’re talking Saltwater Crocodiles, Eastern Grey Kangaroos, Magpie Geese, and Banteng. We’re also talking a free new ‘Great One’ that all players can spot in both Emerald Coast and Hirschfelden Hunting Reserve. This game update is a veritable bonza of natural wonder and stunning wilderness.

You’ll also get a chance to become a protector of the land. Engage in side and story missions that focus on conservation, cooperation, and community, ensuring the delicate ecosystem remains beautiful and balanced.

But wait, there’s more! Coming soon to both PC and console platforms, the free Outback Update tags along with the Emerald Coast release, adding an Australian-inspired character outfit, a revamped Harvest Screen, multiple bug fixes and improvements, and a tad bit more.

  • Hunt some of Australia’s most iconic fauna, including the Magpie Goose, Banteng, Saltwater Crocodile, and Eastern Grey Kangaroo.
