Do you have what it takes to survive the wilderness?
Nature shows its deadly side in Activision's newest addition to its Cabela series released earlier this week, Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2009. The player takes on the role of Flint Abrahams, an experienced hunter with a desire for rare trophies.
The game forces players through nine of the most unforgiving terrains in the world including the South American jungle, Alaskan wilderness, and the Russian tundra. Players will encounter battles with twenty-five different beasts such as lions, grizzly bears, Cape buffalo, rhino, and jaguars. Set in first-person mode, precision shooting is a necessary skill to have; without it, players will be left to engage in hand-to-hand combat with enraged animals.
Furthermore, players will need to survive the various natural disasters included in the game such as plane crashes, avalanches, stampedes, and treacherous boat rides through piranha-infested waters.
The game also features a Bonus Hunt Mode, where players are able to use the skills they have acquired throughout the game's hunting challenges. The fan favorite mode Action Zone has also returned, requiring players to fight off waves of unexpected animals attacks.
Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2009 is available now for the suggested retail price of $39.99
Nature Bites Back In Activision Publishing's Newly Released Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2009
SANTA MONICA, CA – September 23, 2008 – Be afraid... very afraid. Activision Publishing, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) today released Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2009 for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 and PlayStation®2 computer entertainment systems, and Wii™, rendering no hunter safe amidst scores of savage animals in the world's most treacherous hunting locales. The latest title in the best-selling Cabela's Dangerous Hunts franchise turns the food chain upside down, where you will need to rely on precision shooting and quick reflexes to make it out of the wilderness alive.
Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2009 is all about nonstop danger and fast action – this is a thrilling hunting experience for both hunting enthusiasts and first-person action fans. The stats speak for themselves: the game has 25 of the world's most dangerous animals, including lions, grizzly bears, Cape buffalo, rhino, jaguars and more in 9 exotic, rugged locations like the South American jungle, Alaskan wilderness, and the Russian tundra. To top it off, ferocious beasts aren't the only way you can meet your maker – you must survive plane crashes and boat down treacherous rivers, as well as avoid avalanches, stampedes, and piranha-infested waters.
"We've created an intense wilderness experience where hunting for sport is taken to a new level," said Dave Oxford, Activision Publishing. "The onslaught of danger is relentless. The question is, how long can you survive?"
You play as Flint Abrahams, a seasoned big game hunter on a quest to hunt the world's deadliest trophies. Equipped with Cabela's gear, the most respected outdoor recreation brand in the world, one would think the odds are on your side. But no one has even seen animals this fierce – they will charge you if you miss your shot, then you will be forced to fight them via melee defense.

Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2009 will also feature a wide variety of gameplay modes, including fan favorite Action Zone, where the player will fight off waves of surprise animal attacks, and Bonus Hunt Mode, where you use the skills you gained in a series of intense hunting challenges.
