Today Crytek has announced that their multiplayer bounty hunting game Hunt: Showdown will see a full release coming to PC and Xbox One on August 27th 2019 for £39.99. A Playstation 4 version will come at a later date during the Autumn season.
Hunt: Showdown has been in early access on Steam since February 2018 and Xbox Game Preview since May 2019. Player feedback has helped shape the game what it is today through 20 updates and patches. These range from a new boss, a new map, new times of day, additional AI, a quick play option and more 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.”
It has also been announced that Koch Media will be handling the physical release of all copies.
“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 fuel 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 hunting game that combines the thrill of first person shooters and survival games and bunches it all into one big experience in which you’ll be pitted against other players to take out the biggest and most fearsome monsters while also defending yourself against the enemy team or stopping them in their path.
