Crytek Releases Update 5.0 for Hunt: Showdown
Latest update brings a dangerous new AI creature, additional times of day on the Lawson Delta map, and more to the early access game
FRANKFURT (Germany), March 12, 2019 – The Hunt: Showdown team is delighted to let loose their new AI creature: the Immolator. Its highly destructive and volatile behaviors are highlighted in the Immolator’s new gameplay trailer. Meanwhile, today‘s Update 5.0 brings all times of day to both maps and enables Quickplay on Lawson Delta. Also new to the game is the Bornheim No. 3, the latest addition to the game’s compact pistol family.
Players can learn more about how the team made the Immolator AI in a recent blog post featuring three members of the dev team. In short, it is a new AI class, designed to create chaos around any movement that it senses nearby. The Bornheim No. 3 is a semi-automatic pistol that uses compact ammo, has a high rate of fire, and benefits from the use of the Bulletgrubber trait. As for expanded lighting options, players can now hunt in Daylight, Nighttime, Golden, and Foggy on both the Lawson Delta Map and Stillwater Bayou.
Every update has its big highlights, but 5.0 also contains quite a few smaller changes aimed at improving the overall experience for as many players as possible. To that end, Update 5.0 includes boss and AI movement and balancing changes, a long list of audio updates and fixes, Quickplay adjustments, performance upgrades, and many other items that players can read about in detail in the patch notes.
Xbox Fans can look forward to this.
FRANKFURT, Germany – March 11, 2019 – In August, Crytek announced that they would be partnering with Microsoft to bring their multiplayer bounty hunting game Hunt: Showdown to Xbox Game Preview. Now the two companies have announced when players can expect the launch: spring 2019. A new gameplay teaser video will give players a taste of the tense, competitive experience of playing a round of Hunt: Showdown. Xbox Game Preview is a way for fans to preview and purchase work-in-progress digital titles, participate in the development process and help developers make Xbox One games the best they can be.
Hunt: Showdown is a competitive first-person bounty hunting game that combines the thrill of first person shooters and survival games and packs those elements into a match-based format. Each match pits up to ten players—playing solo or in teams of two—against each other as they compete for bounty by taking out gruesome monsters in the swamps of Louisiana in what critiques have called a unique blend of PvP and PvE elements. But once players have taken a bounty, they instantly become a target for every other Hunter left on the map. The higher the risk, the higher the reward–but a single mistake could cost everything, and death is permanent. In Hunt‘s Quick Play mode, ten solo players compete for the chance to keep their Hunter at the end of the match—and a considerable amount of gold.
