Crytek announced today that its multiplayer bounty hunting game, Hunt: Showdown, will see a full release on three major platforms this year. The PC and Xbox One versions will launch on August 27, 2019. Meanwhile, PS4 players will see their own full release of the online game this fall.
Hunt: Showdown launched in early access on Steam in February 2018 and on Xbox Game Preview in May 2019. Since that first release in February 2018, Hunt has seen nearly 20 updates and patches, including a new boss, a new map, two new times of day, additional AI, a Quick Play mode, and more than a dozen weapons.
“Developing a game alongside such a passionate community has been so rewarding. It has taken us in new directions, and really inspired us to put everything we have into Hunt,” said Lead Hunt Producer Fatih Özbayram. “Now the time has come for the full release, and we couldn’t be more excited. We won’t forget the support this community has given us.”
As a thank you to fans, everyone who purchased Hunt during early access will receive an exclusive legendary weapon skin.
There are also plans for a physical copy of the game, which Koch Media will be handling for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
Hunt: Showdown is a competitive first-person bounty hunting game that combines the thrill of first-person shooters and survival games and packs those elements into a match-based format. Each match pits up to ten players — playing solo or in teams of two — against each other as they compete for bounty by taking out gruesome monsters in the swamps of Louisiana.
