After being in Steam Early Access and Xbox Preview, Hunt Showdown will be officially launching on the Xbox One and PC systems next month on August 27th, 2019. Check out the videos below to learn more about what you can expect from the gameplay, storyline and mechanics of Hunt Showdown, a competitive first-person PvP bounty hunting game with heavy PvE elements, from Crytek the makers of Crysis.
“Savage, nightmarish monsters roam the Louisiana swamps, and you are part of a group of rugged bounty hunters bound to rid the world of their ghastly presence. Banish these creatures from our world, and you will be paid generously, and be given the chance to buy more gruesome and powerful weapons. Fail, and death will strip you of both character and gear. Your experience, however, remains in your pool of hunters (called your Bloodline) always.”
Hunt’s competitive, match-based gameplay mixes PvP and PvE elements to create a uniquely tense experience. At the beginning of each Bounty Hunt match, depending on whether you have chosen team play or solo play, up to five teams of two or ten solo players set out to track their monstrous targets. Once they’ve found and defeated one of these they will receive a bounty—and instantly become a target for every other Hunter left on the map. If you don’t watch your back, you’ll find a knife in it, and your last memory will be of someone else walking away with your prize. The higher the risk, the higher the reward–but a single mistake could cost you everything.”
