Carnivores HD Releases on PS3 Today

Carnivores HD, the realistic hunting simulator game, launches on the PlayStation Store today.

The game takes you to an ancient environment and lets you hunt for the most dangerous creatures that have ever existed.

You’ll be hunting Triceratops, Stegosaurus, Ankylosaurus, Ceratosaurus, and finally a T-Rex! There are also flying Pteranodons, and small and peaceful Gallimimuses. Each level is an island about two square miles in size, and features a unique environment. There are deserts and jungles, volcanic islands, and deep forests. Each level comes in three flavors: daytime, evening, and misty.

Being a hunting simulator, the game renders wildlife realistically. Animals make use of natural senses — sight, hearing smell — that are unique to each creature. Dinosaur behavior depends on the environment, weather, and injury state, so a wounded dinosaur will respond fearfully to your presence. Animals also interact with each other: herbivores avoid carnivores, small species avoid big ones. Dinosaurs also forage for food, water, take rests, and wander around the world.

Your arsenal consists of a rifle, sniper rifle and crossbow. You don’t have to kill an animal, either, and you can equip optional tranquilizing shells for every weapon to make dinosaurs take a snooze. If you’d rather just wander around and enjoy the sights and sounds, there’s an Observer Mode designed specifically for exploration.

Finally, you are equipped with a device called Gadget. It enables you to locate dinosaurs by sounds they make or position them on its radar. Following a successful hunt, you can collect your trophies and display them in the Trophy Room.
