Crytek announced that their multiplayer bounty hunting FPS, Hunt: Showdown, will exit early access and launch on Xbox One and PC on August 27 for $39.99. PlayStation 4 will see a launch in fall 2019.
Additionally, fans of physical media worry not, Hunt: Showdown will be receiving a retail release from publisher Koch Media.
Hunt: Showdown launched in Early Access on Steam in February 2019 and then on Xbox One in May 2019. Both programs gave players a chance to explore the mechanics and features that the game offers.
Also, this gave players the chance to give their feedback straight to the developers so they can integrate new systems into the game’s development roadmap. Since entering Early Access, the game has received almost 20 major updates and patches, which includes new enemies and times of the day.
“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.”
Koch Media will be publishing the game physically for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
“Joining forces with Crytek for this amazing multiplayer game is exciting for everybody in the Koch Media family,” said Koch Media’s Head of Marketing, Stephan Schmidt. “The proven track record of the team in the FPS genre and the unique approach to multiplayer gaming gives us confidence that Hunt not only fits perfectly in our broad line-up but also serves a strong need in the market for fresh ideas. The close cooperation of the team with the community ever since the first release fuels the motivation of our global Koch Media teams, and we will support this title with all our experience in the retail market.”
Hunt: Showdown is a competitive first-person bounty hunting game. Where players must work together or solo as they each work towards the bounty. The game requires players to explore various environments and follow clues to find their prey. However, humans aren’t the only thing player have to worry about since monsters are pretty much everywhere and also in an agro state when they hear or see a human.
