Hunt: Showdown Launches August 20

Crytek has announced the release date for Hunt: Showdown.

The first-person multiplayer monster-hunting game is launching for Windows PC and Xbox One on August 20th. A PlayStation 4 release is set for sometime this fall. A price is set at $39.99/€39.99, and Koch Media will partner with Crytek to offer a retail version, worldwide.t

If you purchase Hunt: Showdown while it’s still in Steam Early Access, you’ll get access to an exclusive legendary weapon skin.

Here’s a brief rundown on the game:

Hunt: Showdown, a competitive first-person bounty hunting game, combines the thrill of first-person shooters and survival games and packs those elements into a match-based format. Each match pits up to ten players—playing solo or in teams of two—against each other as they compete for bounty by taking out gruesome monsters in the swamps of Louisiana in what critiques have called a unique blend of player-versus-player and player-versus-enemy elements. But once players have taken a bounty, they instantly become a target for every other Hunter left on the map. The higher the risk, the higher the reward—but a single mistake could cost everything, and death is permanent. In Hunt‘s Quick Play mode, ten solo players compete for the chance to keep their Hunter at the end of the match — and a considerable amount of gold.
