Crytek is releasing its online multiplayer bounty hunting game Hunt: Showdown today on Xbox One! It is available in the Microsoft Store for $39.99. To celebrate the launch, we’re also really excited to be releasing a brand-new DLC pack, Legends of the Bayou.
Set in the swamps of Louisiana in 1895, Hunt: Showdown is a tense and atmospheric experience that can be played in teams of two or three, or solo. Gameplay goes like this: track down clues that will lead you to various target monsters, take them out, and eliminate your competition along the way. The XP and cash you’ll earn completing these contracts can get you more weapons, traits, and other equipment.
Creating Hunt via a community-driven development program like Xbox Game Preview has been such a huge part of the development process. The players that have been there from the beginning, putting in hours of play, and giving us their honest feedback have really shaped the game into what it is today. For example, we added teams of three to the game because it was the community request we got most often – and the player response to its addition has been great.
We couldn’t have done it without you, so I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to all the Xbox players that have been working alongside of us to make this game what it is today.
