'Hunt: Showdown' Reveals Details On Upcoming Weapons & Monster - Trailer

by Rainier on June 11, 2018 @ 5:35 p.m. PDT

Hunt: Showdown is a match-based first-person bounty hunting game where you will face off against unearthly horrors in the forgotten corners of the world.

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. Banish these creatures from our world, and you will be paid generously—and given the chance to buy more gruesome and powerful weapons. Fail, and death will strip you of both character and gear. Your experience, however, remains in your pool of hunters—called your Bloodline—always.

Hunt’s competitive, 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, up to five teams of two set out to track their monstrous targets. Once they’ve found and defeated one of these they will receive a bounty—and instantly become a target for every other Hunter left on the map. If you don’t watch your back, you’ll find a knife in it, and your last memory will be of another team of Hunters walking away with your prize. The higher the risk, the higher the reward–but a single mistake could cost you everything.

Crytek has revealed new footage of the latest weapons (and a new monster!) coming to the first-person bounty hunting game Hunt: Showdown. This content, which debuted earlier today during the PC Gaming Show at E3, will be released very soon and accompany other new features and additions to the game.

The video features:

The Vintage Crossbow, a large, quiet weapon ideal for a stealthy kill. You can retrieve the crossbow’s bolts from the corpses of your enemies after you’ve shot them down.

Throwing Knives are a quiet, light option—they can be used for one match (considered a consumable) and carried in addition to primary and secondary weapons. Knives, like crossbow bolts, can also be retrieved from the corpses of your dead enemies. And, of course, from any other surface you throw them at.

The Hand Crossbow is a smaller version of the Vintage Crossbow, and, as it is categorized as a pistol, can be carried in addition to a larger weapon—bolts retrievable, shots stealthy.

The Sticky Explosive Bomb is a barbed bomb designed to stick to walls and other surfaces when thrown. You throw ‘em, they stick, and then they explode!

There is something in the water now… our newest monster is the Water Devil, a tentacled creature that attacks players when they are traversing the swamps and bayous.

Even in death, you will be able to progress among the ranks of Hunters via your Bloodline. Though one character may die, their experience will be transferred to your Bloodline, where it can be applied your other Hunters. If you make it off of the map alive, you will be able to use the money and experience you earn to kit out new Hunters and prepare for the next match. If you die, you lose everything but your experience.

Dark Sight allows Hunters to see into the veil between worlds, making that which cannot be seen by mortal eyes visible to those who have been initiated. Use Dark Sight when you are tracking monsters, and a ghostly light will guide you toward your next target. Dark Sight also marks players carrying a bounty, making them more vulnerable to ambush while trying to escape.

Hunt: Showdown is now currently available via Steam Early Access, priced at 29.99 EUR/USD and 25.99 GBP.
