Hunt: Showdown

Hunt: Showdown update adds requested content

Including Dark Sight boost, Death Screen, and more.

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?

REVIEW. Written by Mike Holmes

"This twisted online shooter is both unique and cleverly designed, and we love the atmosphere that Crytek has been able to create."
