Changes in Russian Fishing 4 login process.

 

Friends,

 

We regret to inform you that due to the heavy increase in the number of users the dual authorization option through Steam client (Steam & RF4 profiles) has been causing some conflicts in players experience with the game. At this time we will have to suspend the option of login through Steam client for profiles created at rf4game websites. This change will be in effect starting Monday, July 2nd 2018.
All profiles that have been registered through rf4game websites will be able to continue to enjoy the game by launching it via rf4 launcher, not Steam client. This change does not affect profiles created with Steam. Once you pass the login no other changes in the game-play will be affecting any players regardless of their profile registry.

 

Please accept our sincere apologies about this matter. We will continue working on resolving this issue in the future.

Belaya_02.thumb.jpg.50fc65a241e76d30f5292e37f6c2beda.jpg

 

Dear Angling Friends,

We would like to present you with new information about the upcoming update of Russian Fishing 4.

It’s not a big secret to most of you that we will be launching a new water body – Belaya river, which will include many familiar fish species and two new ones: Brown trout and Taimen. Belaya river will be accessible to players from level 12 and higher and, we hope, will become a great attraction to low and medium level players who enjoy spin fishing as well as high level players, who would like to test their skill against the mighty predator Taimen.

We also made some big changes to spin fishing in general, making it more attractive and enjoyable. From the very beginning of the game, the player will receive a full spinning set up and will be able to progress through the game using this method, starting at the base water body – Winding Rivulet, that will become accessible from level 1.

All Premium profiles are getting a new feature that will allow them to progress through the game a bit faster without spending too much time doing it. When logging into the game for the first time every day you will receive a bonus for the first hour of play – experience for caught fish and chance to skill progression is doubled (x4 times from the base XP and skill progression chance).

And that’s just a part of what is coming with the new update. We hope that you will like these changes and new additions while we will continue working hard to keep on developing the game.

Tight lines!

Friends,

Let’s continue our discussion about the upcoming update and what awaits you there.


Tent.

With the upcoming update everyone will be able to use tents as storage for your items at any water body.


Campfire.

Everyone is used to cooking their tea, coffee and mulled wine at the campfires. We are extending the functionality of the campfire. From now on you will be able to warm up next to the fire and increase your comfort level there. To start a campfire, you will need firewood and matches which are sold at the repair shops.


Onega rods.

Tackle arsenal in the game has been increased by products from a new manufacturer – Onega rods. These rods are made using some natural materials and their ethno-style design is unique to the region where they are crafted. Onega rods are presented in the following categories: telescopic, match, bolognese, spinning and casting, as well as jerking rods.

What’s next?

 

Ladoga_02.thumb.jpg.34912a7f2905211d721672deab0f3cf4.jpg

 

As the excitement from the last update settles down it is time to look forward to what awaits Russian Fishing 4 in the near future.

We hear many questions from our players regarding new reels. When they’ll be introduced? What kind of reels? How they’ll perform compared to others? Next update will introduce a new reel manufacturer – Beluga. Reels from this manufacturer will include different spinning and casting models. And today we are featuring one of the reels that are coming with the next update – Beluga Venga 10000.

Beluga_Venga_10000.thumb.jpg.2095c0a182b0ea3ed14244299cf8744e.jpg

 

The most complete range of Beluga reels will be available at the manufacturer store. And the store will be opened at the new water body that will also be a part of the next update. Ladoga lake – is the water body that will be introduced in the upcoming update. It is an extensive territory, with many different features and places to fish for many species that you already familiar with and quite a few new ones.

This is by far just a small part of what awaits you with the next update. And meanwhile, we will continue to introduce you to the new content.

Tight lines anglers!

Friends,

Here is a bit more information about the upcoming update for “Russian Fishing 4”.

With the upcoming update we will introduce SPOD rods series. These are well known tools for anyone who has ever fished carp species. SPOD rods are very powerful rods designed for precise delivery of groundbait at specific fishing spots far away.


5b7b00bfba122____2.thumb.jpg.5ee57cfc47145356ca799b219b9c5c28.jpg

 

For more comfortable use of these rods, players will be able to use them as a fourth rod.

Besides the SPOD rods we will be implementing clipping the line to the spool. This function should provide with better accuracy while casting.

 

Additions described above will provide more comfort and effectiveness to carp anglers and players targeting non-predatory species.

 

This is all for todays news.

Tight lines!
