Uncharted + deadly bears and cougars = next Cabela’s game.

What do you get when you combine Nathan Drake’s love for death-defying adventure with Lara Croft’s insatiable hunger for wildlife slaughter? Activision has the answer: it’s called Cabela’s Survival: Shadows of Katmai, a new third-person adventure game coming this fall on Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii.

After Cabela’s Dangerous Hunts 2011, Activision obviously felt it necessary to up their game (pun not intended) and continue to take the Cabela’s hunting franchise into even darker territory. Cabela’s Survival: Shadows of Katmai (I can’t read that without a movie trailer voice) will play off the fundamental human instinct of survival and provide gamers with “the ride of a lifetime through the daunting Alaskan wilderness in an effort to complete a mysterious mission.”

If anything, Cabela’s hunting games are always good for a laugh. I also know from experience that they make for outstanding party entertainment. Get liquored up and fire up a Cabela’s game… instant good time. The Wii version of Cabela’s Survival: Shadows of Katmai will even be bundled with the Top Shot Elite gun peripheral. Score!

Cabela’s Survival: Shadows of Katmai releases on November 1, 2011 for Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii. Check out the game’s first trailer below.
