Crytek has released Update 2 for their multiplayer bounty hunting game Hunt: Showdown, which adds new features, improvements, and equipment, the biggest of which is a new mechanic that gives the player who kills a boss monster a temporary Dark Sight boost, which gives them the ability to locate other Hunters on the map for a short period.
Update 2 also adds a much-requested Death Screen, the option to add other Hunters as friends, and to 'loot' dead Hunters. There are a few new items to use as well, such as a bear trap, hive bomb, flare pistol, the Beastface trait, and the Tomahawk trait. The Beastface trait lets animals react less likely to your presence, while the Tomahawk trait gives a player the ability to throw the axe and the sledgehammer.
Hunt: Showdown is currently available in Early Access on Steam. Have you been playing it at all?
