Gear Up and Head to the Woods in May 2010 on Xbox 360

505 Games U.S. and Field & Stream, the largest hunting and fishing magazine in the U.S., today announced that Field & Stream: Total Outdoorsman Challenge is set for release in May 2010 on Xbox 360. Total Outdoorsman Challenge teaches players a variety of authentic hunting skills, including bullet trajectory, weapon aim and expert tracking techniques, encouraging them to sharpen their sixth sense to land trophy kills. Gamers will learn to test their mettle against the great outdoors and ultimately earn the coveted title of 'total outdoorsman'.

Featuring a true-to-life, first-person perspective, in Field & Stream: Total Outdoorsman Challenge, players explore authentic environments, listen for animal calls, check the ground for tracks and sign, and use 'Scent Vision' to spot and track prey. As their hunting skills progress, players can close in on targets by utilizing special scents and decoys, and by setting up permanent hideouts and vantage points. To further challenge players, and add even more authenticity to the hunt, each mission must be completed while respecting local rules and regulations.

"505 Games is honored to collaborate with Field & Stream on this new hunting sim," said Adam Kline, president of 505 Games U.S. "The prestigious Field & Stream brand brings credibility and one of the most recognized hunting brands to gaming, and together we've created an authentic hunting experience like no other title currently available."

"We are thrilled to be partnering with 505 Games to be releasing the Field & Stream: Total Outdoorsman Challenge Video Game. This new interactive product is the perfect compliment to our highly successful editorial, television and event franchise," said Eric Zinczenko, publisher of Field & Stream. "Now whether you're in the woods or in the comfort of your own home you will be able to test your skills to see if you have what it takes to be a Total Outdoorsman."

More than 30 big game, small game, predator and game bird species roam each of the multiple environments, which feature exciting wildlife activity and varying weather conditions in both day and night cycles. Gamers can play in serious and casual modes, starting with Practice Mode, where they learn to aim at targets and train with skeet shooting. Free Hunt Mode allows players to hunt any animal without restrictions, regulations or licenses. Players can also experience the thrill of the hunt in Ultimate Hunt Mode-the most challenging, rigorous experience in the game-which requires players to use traditional tracking and stalking techniques to hunt prize catches and brave the wilderness.

Gamers will set their crosshairs in May 2010 with Field & Stream: Total Outdoorsman Challenge for Xbox 360. For more information, please visit:
