Crytek’s online multiplayer bounty hunting game gets all-new DLC on PC and will officially release on Xbox One soon!
Today is the day! Crytek’s online multiplayer bounty hunting game Hunt: Showdown has fully launched out of Steam Early Access and is now available on Windows PC for $39.99 standalone, or bundled with the new “Legends of the Bayou” DLC for $44.99. The Xbox One version of Huntis expected to launch out of Xbox Game Preview soon.
The “Legends of the Bayou” DLC plunges deep into the bayou’s dark heart to bring players two new Legendary Hunter characters, two unique weapons, and 500 Blood Bonds. Stepping out of the shadows are two formidable Legendary Hunters—the Bone Doctor and the Weird Sister—as well as the Legendary Copperhead, a Nagant M1895 named for the ubiquitous indigenous snake. Players who already own the game can purchase the DLC alone for $9.99.
As a Steam Early Access title, Hunt: Showdown grew substantially over time with more than 20 updates and patches developed with constant feedback from the community. That close cooperation between the team and fans, says Hunt Producer Fatih Özbayram, was integral to the game’s development process.
“Hunt: Showdown’s development has been completely community-driven, and that has been such a rewarding experience for the entire team. Together with the community, we were able to create the fun, tense, memorable gaming experience we set out to make,” said Özbayram. “For example, it was a community request that inspired us to add teams of three to Hunt, alongside many other features. So a big thank you goes out to everyone who has supported us throughout the development process – we couldn’t have done it without you!”
Hunt: Showdown is a competitive first-person bounty hunting game that packs the thrill of survival games into a match-based format. Set in Louisiana in 1895, the game boasts a mixture of PvP and PvE elements that creates a uniquely tense experience. It’s not just the creatures who are a threat—it’s every Hunter on the map. In the classic game mode, a match of Hunt pits ten players—playing solo or in teams of two—against each other as they race to take out gruesome beasts for a bounty they must collect and get off of the map, while Hunt’s quickplay mode offers a shorter match for solo players to scavenge for weapons as they compete for a diminishing pool of bounty. The higher the risk, the higher the reward–but a single mistake could cost everything.
