Hunt: Showdown Gameplay Footage Revealed

Posted on 20 Jun 2017

Crytek’s latest venture into the world of gaming is something a little different from what they’re use to. Taking a stab at the PvP market with their upcoming monster hunter game, Hunt: Showdown, where players either hunt together or die frightened and alone. Only briefly mentioned at this years E3, Crytek have delivered today an intense 8-minute long gameplay showcase of what players should expect in the typical 20+ minute long PvP matches. It’s clearly obvious that the Hunt: Showdown is absolutely gorgeous, what isn’t obvious is when we will get our filthy hands on it!

Official Press Release

Crytek Releases First Gameplay Footage From Hunt: Showdown

New gameplay video showcases how players will hunt together or die alone in Crytek’s upcoming PvP monster hunter.

FRANKFURT, Germany  June 20, 2017 – Gameplay footage from Crytek’s PvP monster hunter, Hunt: Showdown, debuted to overwhelmingly positive feedback last week at E3. Today, Crytek is making that footage available to the public via the Hunt Youtube channel, so gamers can take a look at the latest IP from the creators of Crysis.

In the HD video, Hunt creative director Magnus Larbrant and level design director Chris Auty hunt down a monstrous spider in a dark Louisiana swamp. With four other teams of two after the same bounty, and many more monsters lurking in the shadows, they must use a combination of stealth maneuvering and violent confrontation to reach their goal and get out with the bounty—and their lives. 

Though matches can last anywhere between 20 and 40 minutes, this gameplay footage consolidates one round into a tense eight-minute experience, capturing the atmosphere, drama and arc of the gameplay players will experience when Hunt: Showdown launches for PC.

Watch the entire video below, find out more on, or follow Hunt on Twitter and Facebook.

Game looks GORGEOUS! But I can't help but get this "Evolve" vibe from it, which we all know how that turned out in the end (I loved Evolve though...), if Crytek can't pull of a PvP monster game, no one can.
