Hunt: Showdown is a multiplayer horror game where you hunt monsters in the swamps of Louisiana. Developer Crytek has now revealed at Gamescom that the game is heading to Xbox One in the coming months.
Originally revealed at E3 2017, the game has been in early access on PC for several months now, making console gamers like myself very jealous. We don’t have to be jealous for much longer, now that we know the game is heading to Xbox One as part of the Xbox Game Preview program, something that other projects like PUBG, The Darwin Project and recently released Vigor have all used successfully.
Combining survival horror, FPS, co-op multiplayer and some RPG elements, you’ll be competing against other players to hunt down a specific monster bounty. Once killed, everybody else on the map is alerted to your location, making for an intense experience trying to escape.
“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,” said Hunt Producer Fatih Özbayram.
While we had always hoped Hunt: Showdown would make its way to consoles eventually, there was no confirmation this was definitely going to happen due to some behind the scenes changes during development. There’s no firm date for the release on Xbox One yet, but we expect it sometime before the end of 2018.
