HUNT: SHOWDOWN RELEASES NEW UPDATE FOR PC
Update 1.1 brings new weapons, Legendary DLC, and many other improvements to Crytek’s multiplayer bounty hunting game
FRANKFURT, Germany – Oct. 18, 2019 – Crytek has released PC Update 1.1 for the online multiplayer bounty hunting game Hunt: Showdown. Having recently launched out of early access, Hunt: Showdown’s development team is already well in the habit of releasing frequent updates driven by player feedback, and 1.1 continues that tradition.
Among the community requests in Update 1.1 are the Stay-in-Lobby feature and the new Choke Bomb, which can extinguish most fires (though it will also make your Hunter cough, alerting players to your location). Other additions in the update include the Bornheim Nr 3 Match, improvements to UI, localization, gunplay, and AI, and all-new Legendary content.
The Legendary weapons arriving with Update 1.1 include an elegantly detailed Romero 77 called the Southern Belle, as well as Sins of the Son, a brutal and bloody Romero 77. In addition to these two new weapons, 1.1 brings three Legendary DLC items: the Last Gust, a Legendary Winfield M1873 Swift rifle, and two new Legendary characters: Phantom and Llorona’s Heir. The Last Gust DLC can be purchased for 3.99 USD/EUR, while the Phantom and Llorona’s Heir DLCs can be purchased for 4.99 USD/EUR each.
Hunt: Showdown is a competitive first-person bounty hunting game that packs the thrill of survival games into a match-based format. Set in Louisiana in 1895, 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 up to twelve players—playing solo or in teams of two or three—against each other as they race to take out gruesome beasts for a bounty, while Hunt’s Quick Play 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. Hunt is available now on Steam and Xbox One in the Microsoft store.
