Crytek’s Hunt Showdown is now available on Steam Early Access, PC system requirements revealed

Crytek has announced that its competitive first-person PvP bounty hunting game with heavy PvE elements, Hunt: Showdown, is now available on Steam Early Access. In addition, the team revealed the game’s official PC requirements for its Steam Early Access build.

As noted, Hunt: Showdown is an Early Access title, and players should note that they will experience crashes, as well as optimization, performance, and balancing issues. Still, the team states that it is dedicated to fixing major issues as quickly as possible, and to optimizing performance and balance.

Hunt contains a 1km² map packed with hand-crafted locations for you to explore, hoards of gruesome monsters for you to fight on your way to even more savage bosses, and more than 40 weapons, tools, and other equipment. Each player will also have a Bloodline, which is a pool of Hunter characters and is also where experience from Hunters that are killed will be saved.

Crytek claims that the hardware requirements specified below reflect its current work-in-progress minimum and recommended specifications. The team is currently testing against these requirements and optimizing the experience over time. Its long-term goal is to make sure Hunt is accessible to a wide range of available hardware and to continue to adjust its suggested required specs as the game evolves.

So without further ado, here are the game’s PC requirements.
