theHunter: gone Wild

It seems there are now two versions of the excellent PC hunting game theHunter (now re-named theHunter: Classic). There’s now a new version called theHunter: Call of the Wild, which appeared in the spring of 2017 for retailers.

They appear to be identical, and it seems that theHunter: Call of the Wild just has a DVD box able to sit on a shelf in a mall and gets on Amazon at £18. According to a comment on Amazon theHunter: Call of the Wild apparently requires Steam, even though it ships on a DVD. And so far as I recall theHunter: Classic doesn’t require Steam but does need and Internet connection to prevent cheating.

Other than that, I just can’t work out how they’re different. I had a look at the theHunter forums and there’s no FAQ or thread there on the matter. At £18, does the DVD version ship with all sorts of pay-for addons for free? Exclusive items and areas? I would presume so. But the gaming magazines obviously have no interest in the game beyond a few puzzled reviews and print-the-press-release items. So it’s all very mysterious.
