Hunt: Showdown Arrives in Steam Early Access

Hunt: Showdown Arrives in Steam Early Access

Our impressions of the game claim that "There are actually a lot of great ideas in Hunt: Showdown that Crytek has learned from other shooters, but the combination of everything makes it feel incredibly distinctive", but does note that the game has the feeling of an Early Access title being a little rough around the edges.

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. Fail, and death will strip you of both character and gear.

"Early Access is a big milestone for the team, and we are all excited to finally be releasing Hunt: Showdown out into the wild", said Hunt: Showdown Creative Director Magnus Larbrant in a press release announcing the launch. And it sounds like that's where the game will remain until at least 2019, as Crytek works to ensure Hunt: Showdown has all the loot, monsters and weaponry it needs to become a mainstay among PC gamers.

Hunt: Showdown appeared in the Radio Silent collection of games that we're anticipating at Shacknews, but has since gone into closed Alpha and Early Access. Stats will be tracked on leaderboards, and new stats, lore, and other features will be added as the Early Access period unfolds. Players can engage in battle with each other or with the many enemies found throughout the multiplayer map. "It was essential for us in our continuing developments, and we are grateful to have such a dedicated community this early in the game". Hunt: Showdown casts players as bounty hunters, alone or in tandems, and drops you in matches of two to 10 players, with each hunter/team racing to track, kill and escape with the remains of a target creature. After killing the target, it must be banished in order for you to collect your reward and this will give away your position. You can still level up your family bloodline, but the incentive for entering a match and getting out with your life, even if you don't get the bounty, is something Crytek will have to highlight in some way.

The game is described by the team as a "competitive first-person bounty hunting game with heavy PvE elements".
