'Hunt: Showdown' (ALL) Celebrates Third Anniversary With Giveaways, Discounts And Contests

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.

Hunt: Showdown will celebrate three years since the game launched in Early Access on Steam with a range of activities, giveaways, discounts, and competitions this month.

Today, Hunt: Showdown is available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, with over 3 million unique players since launch. Updates to the game since launch include live events, a new map, teams of three, new bosses, a PvE mode, new weapons, equipment, and custom ammo, and more. The Hunt: Showdown roadmap continues to be updated, shaped by player feedback, as the game evolves to become bigger and better.

Hunt: Showdown fans are invited to join in the third-anniversary celebrations by following official Hunt social channels to pick up discounts, win prizes, and enter a new Weapon Skin contest, which will see one winner and two runners-up have their own design for a Legendary Weapon skin added to the game. More details about this contest can be found by visiting  Hunt: Showdown - Third Anniversary Weapon Skin Contest!

“We’d like to thank everyone who has joined us in the bayou since Hunt: Showdown launched in early access three years ago,” said Faith Özbayram, Senior Producer on Hunt: Showdown. “We’re really proud of how the game has grown and we look forward to showing our appreciation for the community with a range of activities and events. There’s big plans in store for Hunt, including a new map, boss, outfit customization along with many more interesting features and content which we’ll be discussing all in due course. Many of these features are community requests and we’re excited to build on the success of the game with these updates and more in 2021.”

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 currently available for PS4, Xbox One and PC (Steam).
