Crytek’s online multiplayer bounty hunting game, Hunt: Showdown, leaves Early Access and is fully released

Crytek has announced that its online multiplayer bounty hunting game, Hunt: Showdown, has left Early Access and is fully released on Steam. In order to celebrate this announcement, Crytek also released the game’s official launch trailer that you can find below.

In Hunt: Showdown, nightmarish monsters roam the Louisiana swamps. You and your party of bounty hunters have pledged to rid the world of their horrific presence. You’ll have to banish these creatures from your world, and you will be paid generously. And if you fail, you will lose both your character and his gear.

Hunt: Showdown emerges from Steam Early Access, a program that allows developers to work closely with their game community as they refine the project in advance of release. That community, 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. For example, it was a community request that inspired us to add teams of three to Hunt, alongside 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.”

We’ll be sure to benchmark the final version of Hunt: Showdown so stay tuned for a PC Performance Analysis. Until then, enjoy the following trailer!
