Crytek Shows Off First Hunt: Showdown Gameplay
Ben Sheene / Jun 20th, 2017 No Comments
Crytek debuted the first gameplay footage from the upcoming Hunt: Showdown.
The footage was first shown off last week at E3 2017. After the positive feedback received for the game, Crytek decided to make the gameplay available to the public on Hunt’s YouTube channel.
Hunt: Showdown is a PvP game in which players group up with another partner to hunt down monsters. The gameplay footage shows the game’s creative director Magnus Larbrant and level design director Chris Auty on the hunt for a massive spider somewhere in a dark Louisiana swamp. Four other teams of two are in the same map seeking the same bounty on the spider.
The dark atmosphere of the swamp emphasizes Hunt’s use of stealth mechanics. Players can see and hear other teams shooting at humanoid enemies and nightmarish creatures wandering the shallows and wooded areas. Players will have guns, melee weapons, throwing items, and supernatural powers to survive the dangers of the world.
Avoiding other players and collecting clues about the bounty look to be important elements in the game. Crytek says that matches can last between 20 and 40 minutes but the gameplay footage has been condensed in this reveal to give viewers an idea of what to expect.
Hunt: Showdown will release on PC but no launch date or window has been announced.
