The new map is the first to launch for Hunt: Showdown in three years and expands the roster of Hunt: Showdown maps to three, joining Still Water Bayou and Lawson Delta as settings for the game’s high risk, high reward, competitive match-based gameplay.
A foreboding new autumn theme sets the tone in DeSalle, where players will hunt for clues as well as monsters, each other, and new Miner Grunt enemies who are equipped with blinding helmet lights.
DeSalle features 16 distinct new areas across the decayed urban sprawl of two Wild West towns alongside expansive mountainous, industrial, and farming regions. New urban settings in the map include a prison, church, bank, and a saloon. Players will also hunt and fight through a shipyard, watermill, fort, quarry, coal mine, and the new farmyard areas.
Fans can get a preview of DeSalle’s varied environments by watching a new gameplay trailer released today.
"We are delighted to launch DeSalle, a map which will bring a new feel to the bayou,” said Fatih Özbayram, Senior Producer for Hunt: Showdown. "DeSalle is designed to bring more verticality to the game with climbable areas where players can take the high ground. The new map presents a wide range of new gameplay possibilities and more approaches for players to take towards their target, whether roaming town streets, stalking through a shipyard, or exploring the depths of a quarry."
