Hunt: Showdown

Crytek announced today that it's multiplayer bounty hunting game, Hunt: Showdown, will be released on August 27, 2019. Priced at $39.99 (USD), the game will hit the Xbox One and PC. A PlayStation 4 release will also happen, but won't be around until later this Fall.

Hunt: Showdown was released to Steam Early Access way back in early 2018. It has since undergone a significant number of updates and improvements over the past couple of years. Some of the updates included an additional boss, a new map, more weapons, balancing, and also time of day options. An Xbox Game Preview release came in May 2019.

The game premise is fairly simple. Each match consists of 10 players, either solo or in teams of two fighting each other and a number of environmental foes. They're competing to take out a bounty and escape with the loot along with their lives.

“Developing a game alongside such a passionate community has been so rewarding. It has taken us in new directions, and really inspired us to put everything we have into Hunt,” said Lead Producer Fatih Özbayram. “Now the time has come for the full release, and we couldn’t be more excited. We won’t forget the support this community has given us.”

“Joining forces with Crytek for this amazing multiplayer game is exciting for everybody in the Koch Media family,” said Koch Media's Head of Marketing Stephan Schmidt. “The proven track record of the team in the FPS genre and the unique approach to multiplayer gaming gives us confidence that Hunt not only fits perfectly in our broad line up, but also serves a strong need in the market for fresh ideas. The close cooperation of the team with the community ever since the first release fuel the motivation of our global Deep Silver teams, and we will support this title with all our experience in the retail market.”

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 10 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 critics have called a unique blend of PvP and PvE 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, 10 solo players compete for the chance to keep their Hunter at the end of the match—and a considerable amount of gold.
