Hunt Showdown

For one week only, solo players will rule Hunt: Showdown in the game's debut live event. From Thursday, Aug. 30, at 10 a.m. ET to Thursday, Sept. 6, at 10 a.m. ET, players have the option to choose Solo contracts, which pit up to ten solo players against each other in multiplayer matches. Tension is bound to be high: in Solo Event matches, there is just one bounty and one winner.

Players participating in the Solo Event will also be eligible for special awards, and the players who extract from the map with the most bounties have a lot to gain. The rewards are as follows:

 · Top 50: 3500 gold
 · Top 10: 3500 gold, custom Hunter name for a single Hunter
 · Top 5: 3500 gold, custom Hunter name for a single Hunter, 3 weapons of choice (1 large, 1 medium, 1 small), 3 consumables of choice, 3 tools of choice, and 50 points worth of traits
 · Top 3: All of the rewards available to the top 5 players, as well as +1 prestige level

Hunt: Showdown is a competitive first-person bounty hunting game from the makers of Crysis. Set in the darkest corners of the world, it packs the thrill of survival games into a match-based format that mixes PvP and PvE elements to create a uniquely tense experience. Each match pits up to ten players against each other as they fight for the bounty by taking out gruesome monsters in the swamps of Louisiana. Once they've found and defeated one of these, they will receive a bounty — and 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.

Exclusively solo Hunt matches have been one of the most requested features from the Hunt: Showdown community, and their feedback was the impetus for the game's first Solo Event. In recent updates, the community's influence has also been visible in the addition of the new Dark Sight boost feature, a spectator mode, a mission with heavy fog, a reporting system, Steam trading cards and new AI.

Hunt is available now in early access on Steam.
