Competitive monster shooter Hunt: Showdown starts its alpha this month

Imagine a beautifully-rendered battle royale game set in dark swamps, a sandbox environment where you can team up with a buddy to hunt monsters.

From what we've seen from the gameplay the game looks awesome, and plays like a less science-fiction based, darker version of Evolve, but hopefully this game will be more successful than Evolve, which went free to play and then was apparently shut down due to a sharp dropoff in player numbers.

If any of this sounds appealing, you should sign up for the Hunt: Showdown closed alpha. Play it on January 31st. Crytek's will choose beta testers randomly, excluding the interested Twitch streamers who are interested in promoting HUNT: Showdown on their official Twitch channels. During Closed Alpha, the Hunt team will be testing gameplay, balancing, and backend functionality, as well as collecting feedback from the community. Furthermore, during its closed beta, Crytek may release new in-game elements, gear or weapons for a better examination and control over the game's details and resources. You can play solo or team up with a buddy.


Crytek's bounty hunter monster shooter Hunt: Showdown seems to be flying under the radar, but it shouldn't be. During each session, players can hunt down monsters and each other. Anyone can reap the bounty of each map.

Further down the road, Hunt will release on Steam Early Access (were you expecting otherwise?).
