Two New DLCs for theHunter: Call of the Wild Now Available

Emerald Coast Australia DLC Expansive Worlds

The atmospheric open-world hunting game theHunter: Call of the Wild has exciting new content in the form of the Emerald Coast Australia DLC, now available on Steam for $7.99.

This DLC brings players to the land down under, where they are tasked with protecting the region's beautiful yet fragile ecosystem via new story missions and side quests. The new location consists of animals native to Australia, such as magpie goose, banteng, saltwater crocodile, and eastern gray kangaroo.

The Emerald Coast Australia also brought a new weapon to help players in their new endeavor: the Zagan Varminter .22 -250. This five-round bolt-action rifle is pretty light, accurate, and has minimal recoil, which is why it is a great addition to anyone's arsenal.

Developer Expansive Worlds also released another new DLC for those who love the popular Layton Lake map. The new Layton Lake Cosmetic Pack includes sprays, camos, unique paints, and wraps inspired by the said map. Those who want to customize their gear with that true Layton style can purchase this pack for $2.99 on Steam.
