Crytek’s Hunt: Showdown Getting Closed Alphas this Winter
Hunt: Showdown will be getting multiple Closed Alphas on PC this winter before it hits Early Access.
Crytek revealed today that the studio’s upcoming multiplayer first-person shooter Hunt: Showdown will have multiple Closed Alpha tests that the public can participate in this Winter. This announcement comes almost a month after it was revealed that the game will eventually be coming to Early Access.
Fatih Özbayram, Producer of Hunt: Showdown, had the following to say about the Closed Alpha of the game:
“Closed alpha will be our first chance to get player feedback, and we are really excited to see how they will interact with the game. After initial tests with a very limited amount of players, we are planning to invite more and more testers with each phase. This is the first step in building a close relationship with our community and integrating their feedback into our development process, something we plan on continuing—and intensifying—during early access.”
This past weekend, Cyrtek held an Extra Life Charity Livestream, where they finally gave players a nice extended look at the game. Two videos from the livestream were uploaded onto the official Hunt: Showdown YouTube channel and they give a nice in-depth look at gameplay for those who may still be a bit confused about how the title works. You can check out over four and a half hours of gameplay from the Extra Life 2017 Livestream at the bottom of this article.
If you want to learn more about the game, you can also check out three previous developer diaries that go over various part of Hunt: Showdown. This includes the game’s development history, the different weapons within the game, and the level design. Hunt: Showdown is currently only slated for PC, and Closed Alpha tests will be happening this winter.
