Crytek has announced that its competitive first person bounty hunting game with heavy PvE elements, Hunt: Showdown, will be coming to Steam Early Access. In order to celebrate this announcement, Crytek released a new Steam trailer for it, and you can watch it below.
Hunt: Showdown promises to pack the most thrilling moments from survival games. The game will feature a match-based format and will set the action in dark and forgotten corners of the world.
Hunt Producer Fatih Özbayram said:
“We believe strongly that community-driven development is crucial to creating a great online multiplayer experience. An Early Access release will allow us to get Hunt out to players as quickly as possible. To collect feedback, and to work closely with the community to continue to shape the direction of the game.”
Creative Director Magnus Larbrant added:
“We will be adding more gear, more monsters, more Hunters. More game modes, more traits, crafting, and further map variations throughout Early Access. We want to take the time to make Hunt the game we’ve always wanted to play.”
Hunt’s match-based gameplay mixes PvP and PvE elements to create a uniquely tense experience where your life, your character, and your gear are always on the line. At the beginning of each match, teams set out to track their monstrous targets. Once they’ve found and defeated one of these they will receive a bounty—and. As such, they will instantly become a target for every other Hunter left on the map.
