Hunt: Showdown, Crytek’s newest multiplayer title that has a supernatural twist, hit Steam Early Access back in February. Since then, Crytek has been working on a major performance patch for the game to make it an all-around smoother experience. After previously rolling out the improvements in a test server, the developers fully implemented this performance patch for everyone today.

According to Crytek, the patch mainly focuses on CPU optimization in order to reduce the memory footprint of the game and the amount of stutters and stalls that occur for players. Those playing on computers with lower specs are likely to benefit the most from this Hunt: Showdown patch.

Coinciding with the release of this patch, Crytek also put out a video going into more detail about what exactly was improved. In the video, they explain why the patch focuses on CPU optimization and go more into the technical side of things when describing improvments.

You can check out the video below. Hunt: Showdown is currently available on PC via Early Access.
