In Hunt: Showdown, nightmarish monsters roam the Louisiana swamps. You and your party of rugged bounty hunters have pledged to rid the world of their horrific presence. Banish these creatures from our world, and you will be paid generously. Fail, and death will strip you of both character and gear.
Hunt: Showdown emerges from Steam Early Access, a program that allows developers to work closely with their game community as they refine the project in advance of release. That community, says Hunt Producer Fatih Özbayram, was integral to the game’s development process.
“Hunt: Showdown’s development has been completely community-driven, and that has been such a rewarding experience for the entire team. Together with the community, we were able to create the fun, tense, memorable gaming experience we set out to make. For example, it was a community request that inspired us to add teams of three to Hunt, alongside many other features,” said Özbayram. “So a big thank you goes out to everyone who has supported us throughout the development process – we couldn’t have done it without you.”
The Legends of the Bayou DLC plunges hunters deep into the swamp’s dark heart to honor the full PC release of Hunt: Showdown and provide those loyal to the cause with two new Legendary Hunter characters, two unique weapons, and 500 Blood Bonds.
Stepping out of the swampy shadows are two formidable Legendary Hunters—the Bone Doctor and the Weird Sister—as well as the Blood Oath Knife and Legendary Copperhead revolver, a Nagant M1895 named for the ubiquitous indigenous snake. The Legendary Copperhead is a weapon of distinction, only carried by the very first hunters to reach the bayou and shows which hunters were here from the start.
