E3 2017 Behind Closed Door Impressions of Crytek’s Gothic Monster Slaying Game, Hunt: Showdown

The Niche Gamer crew gets a behind closed door demo of Crytek’s new FPS PvE vs PvP hybrid Hunt!

Check out our impressions, and pick up some more info about the games features not talked about before. Hunt is currently in development for the PC.

Here’s a brief synopsis on the game, via Crytek:

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. 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. Everything and everyone is against you—even the earth itself. Make one mistake, and you will die in filth, forgotten. Succeed, and the bounty and the glory will be immense.

Other hunters seek the same prey, lust for the same bounty. Get in their way, and you may find yourself their target. Get caught, and they will pry your trophy from your cold, dead hands.
