Hunt: Showdown: Crytek gives us our first taste of gameplay


Crytek has released gameplay footage from its new PvP monster hunter, Hunt: Showdown, and we’ve it right here for you to devour.

The following eight minutes is condensed from a normal 20-40 minute match. Check it out:

“You and your partner are members of a secret hunting society that tracks and kills monsters. The bounties are high, but so are the risks. The smallest mistake will cost you everything—your bounty, your gear, your life, and your very soul,” Crytek said of its newest title. “Some hunt for wealth, some for power. Some hunt to protect others, some hunt for glory. You must track your quarry through a dark and treacherous world. Winner takes all. Fail, and go straight to hell.

“Hunting for sport is child’s play. This is a different kind of game, one with high stakes and even higher rewards. You will face creatures that want to gorge themselves on your flesh and devour your soul.”

Deep, eh?

Hunt: Showdown heads to Windows PC this spring.
