Crytek’s Hunt: Showdown is Finally Coming to Xbox Game Preview this Spring
Crytek finally revealed today that its supernatural multiplayer FPS Hunt: Showdown will be to Xbox Game Preview for Xbox One in Spring 2019.
Crytek and Microsoft revealed that Hunt: Showdown would be coming to Xbox Game Preview, Microsoft’s form of early access on Xbox One, all the way back at Gamescom 2018. That being said, not much has been shared about the port since then. Fortunately, Crytek finally decided to talk about it once more today, revealing that Hunt: Showdown will be releasing for Xbox One sometime this Spring.
For those of you who haven’t heard of Hunt: Showdown, it is a supernatural first person shooter that has been in Steam Early Access for over a year. Matches only have 10 players who operate either alone or in pairs, with the main goal being to kill a supernatural monster, collect its bounty, and escape with it. Interestingly, players instantly become the main target after picking up a bounty, which makes it much harder to escape.
Hunt: Showdown features permadeath as well, adding even higher stakes to the PvP potion of the game. As I mentioned, Hunt: Showdown has been available to the public for a little over a year, with Crytek consistently taking feedback from the community and giving players a detailed roadmap to follow. Currently, their main focus is optimizing the PC version of Hunt: Showdown and getting the Xbox One version of the game released. After that, the developers plan on continuing to add new content as the game approaches a 1.0 release.
You can check out the trailer unveiling this release window as well as some screenshots of the Xbox One version of the game below. Hunt: Showdown is currently available for PC with a fairly healthy player count and will be adding Xbox One to that lineup in Spring 2019.
