Activision have officially announced Cabela’s Dangerous Hunts 2013, the brand new adventure in its successful Dangerous Hunts franchise that introduces the all-new Top Shot Fearmaster wireless controller which features its own heartbeat sensor that integrates the player’s own heart rate into the game.

The Top Shot Fearmaster utilises a biometric heart rate monitor to propel players into the world of hunting so that gameplay varies based on the player’s ability to control their fear and maintain their cool. Players that successfully control their heart rate will increase their accuracy, deal more damage, or slow down time to line up the perfect shot.

The story in Cabela’s Dangerous Hunts 2013 is penned by writer Andrew Kreisberg (Fringe) and centers around two brothers who are torn apart after the death of their father at the hands of a grizzly bear. Ten years later the brothers reunite for the hunt of their lives. The game also includes a new “Maneater” mode allowing for two-player co-operative gameplay where teamwork is essential as both players must work together to complete missions in order to survive for as long as possible.

Cabela’s Dangerous Hunts 2013 will be available with the Top Shot Fearmaster on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on 23rd October. The game will also be available with the Top Shot Fearmaster controller for the Wii (the Wii Top Shot Fearmaster does not include heart rate sensors)The game can also be purchased without the Top Shot Fearmaster.
