Ultimate Games have previously been behind the likes of Ultimate Fishing Simulator and Deadliest Catch: The Game. In 2021 though it’ll all be about saving the animals with the launch of Animal Rescue on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and all manner of other formats.
Hitting Xbox consoles alongside those of PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam, Animal Rescue will be Ultimate Games’ attempt at allowing players to become a field veterinarian and rescuer. Set to debut at some point near the end of 2021 (Q4 in fact), it will give us all the chance to react to specific crisis situations in order to save defenceless animals from the destructive powers of nature. In terms of gameplay, Ultimate Games promise that it’ll combine elements of adventure, simulation and survival games.
“As a veterinarian and rescuer, specialising in providing aid and combating the effects of natural disasters, we will not only search for and rescue surviving animals, but also treat them afterwards. We will be able to build and expand field animal clinics. The issue of transport will also play a very important role. To get to our destinations quickly, we will be using, among others, an off-roader, which will require proper maintenance. Making sure that our specialised veterinary equipment and first aid kit are in good shape will also be of key importance” – said Rafał Jelonek, COO at Ultimate Games S.A.
Animal Rescue also promises to let players visit a wide array of characteristic locations from all around the world, taking in the likes of a tropical island, Canadian forests, the savanna/desert and regions almost permanently covered with snow. Each location will feature different threats too – you may experience a sandstorm in the desert, or a volcanic eruption on the tropical island. And further to that, the missions and the species of animals waiting to be rescued will also be very diverse depending on where you are – cats, dogs, horses, cows, raccoons and monkeys will all star.
Animal Rescue on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC will include:
- saving and treating animals;
- varied rescue missions;
- many species of animals waiting for help;
- natural disasters (such as hurricanes, floods and fires);
- locations from different parts of the world;
- field animal clinics and off-road vehicles;
- dynamic weather system.
We’ll be sure to keep you up-to-date with the progress of Animal Rescue in the months ahead. If you wish to know more, check out the reveal trailer and it up the Steam page.
