Crytek’s Hunt: Showdown Celebrates 4th Anniversary

Check out new Twitch Drops content and grab the competitive bounty hunting game and its DLC at a discount for a limited time on Steam

FRANKFURT, Germany Feb. 22, 2022 – Diehard fans and new players alike are invited to jump into the bayou and celebrate Hunt: Showdown’s fourth anniversary since its original release in early access. To mark this milestone, Hunt: Showdown is thanking the community with bonus Twitch Drops in-game content, as well as new artwork and a special anniversary sale on Steam.

There has never been a better time to join Hunt’s more than 3.5 million unique players, a number that continues to grow year-on-year. The bayou is a strange and dangerous place – just ask the 1,595 people killed by doors or 276 killed by horses – and everyone’s invited to the anniversary celebrations by hunting down bounties… and each other.

Fatih Özbayram, Senior Producer for Hunt: Showdown, said, “The whole team has worked really hard over the past four years to make Hunt a special experience for everyone. Every match tells a unique story, and that’s why people come back to the bayou again and again.

“We’re constantly looking to keep the game fresh with updated content and events – over the past year we’ve added a new map and new boss, and held events including Light the Shadow and As the Crow Flies – and we can’t do that without our amazing and welcoming community. By putting players first and listening to what they want from Hunt, we’re able to create a gaming experience that is truly special.”

The Twitch Drops campaign, which includes four Legendary Weapons and a Legendary Hunter for use on PC, Xbox and PlayStation, starts February 23 at 10 a.m. ET and runs until Tuesday, March 1, at 10 a.m. ET. Drops are open to all – simply watch your favorite Hunt: Showdown Twitch streamers to start collecting free rewards.

Hunt’s new key art branding, reflecting its unique PvPvE gameplay, will appear across all Hunt: Showdown channels and will be available to players to download as wallpaper.

About Hunt: Showdown

Hunt: Showdown is a competitive first-person bounty hunting game that packs the thrill of survival games into a match-based format. Set in 1895 Louisiana, the game boasts a mixture of PvP and PvE elements that creates a uniquely tense experience. It’s not just the creatures who are a threat—it’s every Hunter on the map. In the classic game mode, a match of Hunt pits 12 players—playing solo or in teams of two or three—against each other as they race to take out gruesome beasts for a bounty they must collect and get off of the map. Hunt’s quickplay mode offers a shorter match for solo players to scavenge for weapons as they compete for a diminishing pool of bounty. The higher the risk, the higher the reward–but a single mistake could cost everything. For more information, visit
