Way of the Hunter’s Next DLC Will Likely Be Set in Africa

The DLC will be released in the summer or fall, likely around the time of the game's anniversary.

Way of the Hunter recently received its first major expansion, Aurora Shores. It added a new map to the game, a new character, and more content. After witnessing the update, our team at TopTierList found an article from Slovakian gaming magazine, revealing that the upcoming DLC will be in Africa, and should release in the summer or fall.

Way of the Hunter was released on the 16th of August, 2022. As such, the DLC will likely release around the same time as the Anniversary. In addition, we should see many forests and oases that complement the beauty of African wildlife. We can expect to see not only new biomes but also new animals, as expected from Africa.

However, the gaming magazine mentioned that most information is subject to change, so taking it with a grain of salt is a given. Considering Africa’s popularity with its wildlife, the DLC is not a huge surprise.

Major Points

  • Way of the Hunter‘s upcoming DLC will be set in Africa.
  • It will likely release in the summer or fall of 2023, around the time of the game’s first Anniversary, which is the 16th of August.
  • The article does not mention the addition of a new character but talks about new biomes and kinds of animals.

Way of the Hunter recently released the Aurora Shores DLC, making it the first major expansion for the game. It includes the addition of an entirely new map, which takes you to the icy mountains of Alaska. The map is a whopping 64 square kilometers, with different kinds of environments.

There are 14 animals to hunt, with a new story to keep gamers engaged. Here, you play as a woman, which gives you a new vibe to the base game that features a male hunter. The DLC is paid and can provide gamers with quite a bit of content to explore.

In case you run out of things to do pretty fast, fret not, because according to CentrumHer, a Slovakian gaming magazine, the upcoming DLC should arrive in around 6 months. This DLC will be set in Africa and likely be paid as well, similar to Aurora Shores. Since Africa is notable for its wildlife, this DLC will be something to look forward to.

Moreover, there is no mention of a new character being added to the DLC, but more on that can be confirmed once an official announcement has been made. CentrumHer said it themselves that they got this information from the sources around the game’s production, but since there isn’t an official announcement, take things with a grain of salt.

We believe there might be more changes in the type of content the magazine mentioned, but the main African theme will likely be there. We will see a whole new map inspired by the wild African savanna, filled with forests and water oases. They will make perfect habitats for different kinds of animals.

Aside from the new biomes and a variety of animals, this might also be special for the game if it releases around the time of the 1st Anniversary. The game was released on the 16th of August, which goes with the summer or fall release window given by their sources.

If you are unfamiliar with Way of the Hunter, it is a highly immersive and excellent hunting experience. The game truly captures the essence of animal behavior. Despite the genre targeting a very specific group of gamers, it is undoubtedly one of, if not the best, hunting games ever. Therefore, it is a perfect place to venture into the animal hunting genre.

The complex animal behavior and the ever-changing complicated ecosystems interact perfectly with the character and offer an authentic hunting simulation without being a simulator itself. Since the game continues adding more content and focusing on wildlife-rich areas, it will only get better from here on.

That is all for now! What are your thoughts on the upcoming DLC? Do you think the DLC focusing on Africa will be much better than Aurora Shores? Share your thoughts with us below, and we will get back to you!
