Hunt: Showdown

Critics Consensus (Play It)

Hunt: Showdown is an incredibly tense survival horror multiplayer FPS. The stage is too small – the game lacks variety in both game modes and maps – but there are some great ideas here, and it comes highly recommended for junkies of hardcore, survival-based multiplayer in a horrific setting.

Game Info

Savage, nightmarish monsters roam the Louisiana swamps, and you are part of a group of rugged bounty hunters bound to rid the world of their ghastly presence. Banish these creatures from our world, and you will be paid generously—and given the chance to buy more gruesome and powerful weapons. Fail, and death will strip you of both character and gear. Your experience, however, remains in your pool of hunters—called your Bloodline—always.

“In combining an open world monster-rush format with PUBG-esque PvP, Crytek has crafted a stealth survival game like few others.”

“Hunt: Showdown is a clever, hard-nosed FPS that doesn’t have enough substance to be truly essential yet.”

5/5 stars

“Perhaps the greatest achievement of Hunt is that it has taken the unknowable, unexpected possibility space of something like Day-Z, and boiled it down to something you can, and must, play in under an hour.”
