Some great news for console fans – Crytek’s Hunt: Showdown will appear on Xbox Game Preview in the near future!
Xbox Game Preview works like Early Access Steam. It’s a service that allows Xbox players to preview and purchase work-in-progress digital titles, as well as to actively take part in the development process. Fans who play in Game Preview are invited to reach out to the development team through various forums and give feedback on the game.
Hunt: Showdown is a competitive first-person bounty hunting game that combines first-person shooting and survival. Each match pits up to ten players—playing solo or in teams of two—against each other as they fight for bounty by taking out gruesome monsters in the swamps of Louisiana with 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 risks could get you great rewards – or permadeath.
In a press release, Hunt Producer Fatih Özbayram said the following – “Bringing Hunt: Showdown to Xbox Game Preview means getting the game in front of a whole new audience, and we can’t wait to hear the feedback that Xbox players bring to the game and the community. This is another important step in taking our development to the next level, and we’re glad we can share this announcement with you.”
No release date has been announced, but we will bring you that info when it is available. I personally am pumped to see Hunt on console. What do you think? Let us know in the comments!
