Hunt: Showdown to Launch on Xbox Game Preview Spring 2019
If youve ever played a game developed by Crytek, then you know what you can expect. Well, with that in mind, we have a bit of news for Xbox One owners that might interest you.
In August, Crytek announced that they would be partnering with Microsoft to bring their multiplayer bounty hunting game Hunt: Showdown to Xbox Game Preview. Now the two companies have announced when players can expect the launch: spring 2019. Xbox Game Preview is a way for fans to preview and purchase work-in-progress digital titles, participate in the development process and help developers make Xbox One games the best they can be.
In terms of the game itself, Hunt: Showdown is a competitive first-person bounty hunting game that is said to combine 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 in what has been described as a unique blend of PvP and PvE elements.
Once players have taken a bounty, they instantly become a target for every other Hunter left on the map. The higher the risk, the higher the reward–but a single mistake could cost everything, and death is permanent. In Hunts Quick Play mode, ten solo players compete for the chance to keep their Hunter at the end of the match—and a considerable amount of gold.
