Hunt: Showdown Teases a New Map, Hunters, and More in a Moody Trailer


Hunt: Showdown has really found its feet in recent months, with developer Crytek delivering some exciting new content and updates, and it seems the best is yet to come. Crytek just dropped the moody “Dark Sight” trailer, which teases all sorts of stuff, including a new map, Native American Hunters who will come wielding bows and other new weapons, and more. No new bosses, but then Crytek did just add the intimidating Scrapbeak to the game. Check out the trailer below.

Sounds promising – hopefully we get more information soon. Crytek recently released Hunt: Showdown ver. 1.5.2, which rebalanced weapons, improved controls, and more. You can get the full patch notes here.
