Hunt: Showdown announces a game-changing update

Crytek will soon update its unique first-person shooter Hunt: Showdown. The game was released in 2018 and it received a warm welcome from a community eager to discover what the creators of Crysis Remastered and the first Far Cry  would offer. Hunt: Showdown delivers an intense multiplayer experience set in a dark world, and features two distinct gameplay modes. Bounty Hunt is a cooperative multiplayer experience that you can share with up to two other players where you have to hunt down several bosses. Meanwhile, the Soul Survivor mode is a Battle Royale where all players fight to control the Wellspring and be the last man standing.

Overall, Hunt: Showdown offers an exciting gameplay experience that has caught the eye of many players over the years. The game will soon be subject to major changes with a future update that will significantly modify the experience. However, it will also cause major problems for those currently playing the game on older-generation consoles.

New graphics engine and more

Hunt: Showdown general manager David Fifield is the protagonist of a new video that sheds some light on the upcoming update. First of all, he has confirmed that the update will be released on August 15. Ahead of that, Crytek will be revealing plenty of information about the novelties, but we know a few details already. The change to the current version of the CryEngine will significantly enhance the graphics in the game but it will also come accompanied by additional content in the form of a new map and a new biome for players to fight at. Also, a new UI design will refresh the overall aspect of the game and a series of performance enhancements will improve the gameplay experience.

 

 

However, all these changes will have consequences. As a result of the change in the game engine, older generation consoles will not be able to run it properly. If you are playing Hunt: Showdown on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One you will need to think about switching to a new platform. Filfield has confirmed that if you move to PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X/S you won't have to start from scratch.

 

"We want to be clear, your player accounts and entitlements to Hunt: Showdown and all related DLCs carry up to the new version at no additional cost when you're ready to make the hardware transition."

 

Crytek will reveal more information about the upcoming changes soon. Until then, you should keep an eye on our comparator to check out the best deals to buy a Hunt: Showdown CD key, especially if you plan on making the transition to PS5 or Xbox Series.
