We first heard about the next version of the popular series Big Buck Hunter on G4TV when they interviewed Play Mechanix, the developers of the game and now it is finally headed to the street. Big Buck Hunter Pro Online will allow players to compete in local or national tournaments via the internet, create their own hunting parties with friends online, track their stats through the Trophy Club and experience 20% more content of caribou. The online system they are using will be known as “Coin-Up”, which uploads player rankings to coinup.com.
It’s good to see arcades getting into more online leaderboards – while this isn’t the first game to try such a thing, it certainly is a welcome feature that more games should use. Not only that but the online play is also something that should be used more often. Expect to see the latest version of BBHP in an arcade near you soon.
