Crytek has expanded Hunt: Showdown, adding a new quest system to the game with the launch of Update 1.8.1 on PC.
Players can “summon” quests to complete when they enter the bayou, with challenges like taking down specific enemies, killing grunts, locating boss lairs, and more. There are five quest categories to choose from, ranging from Simple to Legendary.
Players will earn more stars for completing more difficult challenges. Each week players can earn up to 30 stars, which will offer a maximum reward of 25 Blood Bonds. Additional rewards for completing quests will include in-game items like explosives and pistols, and available quests will rotate and reset every Monday.
“The new quest system will give players more control over the in-game challenges they wish to take on and the chance to earn more rewards every day,” said Senior Producer Fatih Özbayram. “Hunt is a community-driven game, and this exciting new system will expand and evolve as we progress, shaped by player feedback.”
“We’re also delighted to offer fans the chance to see their idea for a quest implemented in the game. The Hunt community is full of creativity, and we can’t wait to see what ideas players come up with,” she added.
