Share this:

After initially launching on PC and Xbox One last year, Crytek Games has finally revealed the Hunt Showdown PS4 release date, and it’s due next month!

In a press release detailing a new publisher deal between Crytek and Koch Media, it was revealed that the Hunt Showdown PS4 release date would be happening on February 18 of this year. Alongside the PS4 release, a physical version of the game will also be releasing for the Xbox One the same day.

With the release of the PlayStation 4 version, Crytek and Koch media plan for some lengthy post-launch support as the prep for the release of their 1.2 update. The update is set to introduce random teams of three, an advanced tutorial, new Legendary Hunters, and new equipment and weapons. Along with new content, the team will also be addressing several bug fixes and some server-side performance improvements.

The press release also highlighted that looking ahead towards future updates, players can expect Solo PvE mode, live-events, outfit customization, and a new map. The biggest feature, however, appears to be the inclusion of cross-play between Xbox and PlayStation, though they didn’t state as to when we could expect to see this added.

For those who don’t know, Hunt: Showdown is a competitive first-person PvP bounty hunting game that features PvE elements. You can watch the launch trailer down below and read up on the game’s synopsis.

You and your partner are members of a secret hunting society that tracks and kills creatures. The bounties are high, but so are the risks. The smallest mistake will cost you everything—your bounty, your gear, your life, and your very soul.

Some hunt for wealth, some for power. Some hunt to protect others, some hunt for glory. You must track your quarry through a dark and treacherous world. Winner takes all. Fail, and go straight to hell.

Hunt: Showdown originally launched last year on the PC and Xbox One and opened up to generally positive reviews. It currently sits at an average of 81% on metacritics.
