Are you a fan of Crytek’s Hunt: Showdown? If so, you’ll be glad to know that the game will be leaving early access and will officially be launching this August 20 on PC and Xbox One! Not only that, but a Hunt Showdown PS4 version has been confirmed as well, which is set to launch sometime this fall.
Hunt: Showdown will be priced at $39.99 when it launches digitally, and Crytek is also partnering with Koch Media to launch the game physically at retailers as well. Originally released way back in February 2019 in Steam Early Access, and just this May 2019 in Microsoft’s Xbox Game Preview program.
Not familiar with Hunt: Showdown? Here’s how it plays according to Crytek:
Hunt: Showdown, a competitive first-person bounty hunting game, combines the thrill of first-person shooters and survival games and packs those elements into a match-based format. Each match pits up to ten players—playing solo or in teams of two—against each other as they compete for bounty by taking out gruesome monsters in the swamps of Louisiana in what critiques have called a unique blend of player-versus-player and player-versus-enemy elements. But once players have taken a bounty, they instantly become a target for every other Hunter left on the map. The higher the risk, the higher the reward—but a single mistake could cost everything, and death is permanent. In Hunt‘s Quick Play mode, ten solo players compete for the chance to keep their Hunter at the end of the match — and a considerable amount of gold.
We’ve covered Hunt: Showdown on and off the last few months, expect that to change once the game’s out of early access. You can check out a brief (and early version) tutorial of how it plays here.
