Crytek has announced that its competitive first-person PvP bounty hunting game with heavy PvE elements, Hunt: Showdown, is currently free to play until June 17th. According to the team, the free weekend will run until Monday, June 17th at 10 am PT/1 pm ET/ 7 pm CEST.
Hunt: Showdown’s free weekend follows the recently released Update 6.1, which added the most frequently community-requested feature: the FOV slider. Update 6.0, which was released in May, added a new boss, new lore book, new weapons, and new traits, as well as a slew of performance tweaks.
Hunt: Showdown is a multiplayer, first-person bounty hunting game that combines the action, the thrill, and the tension of multiple genres into a unique new gaming experience. During each match, up to ten players track and kill monsters solo or in teams of two, then have to fight to get off of the map with the prize before another Hunter takes them out.
