What is more interesting than the addition of new Legendary Animals. Conservasitonalist Harriet Davenport will start players off with a mission. The mission contains to tracking some wild animals like cougars, foxes, boars. They want to obtain their blood samples with some easy tranquillizing.
There is also the hunter method to choose. Gus McMillian, a hunting legend will give you special clothes awards in return of their legendary pelts. But you cannot play both sides either or Harriet will catch you in poaching activities. Either choose to take the less violent way or kill those pesky boars but you have to choose.
Naturalists unlock the new content like an advanced camera, an exclusive horse, Mercy Kills for animals. If you take the less-violent path, you will unlock a Varmint Rifle and sedative cartridges, as well as revive tonics to free the animals just after their samples have been collected. Gus will give you improved bow and another strong rifle for hunters like Elephant Rifle. A cool upcoming thing will be the wide use of tonics that allow characters to control their weight. This can give you a wide range of customization and skills.
