Crytek's found themselves a winner with Hunt: Showdown. Set in Louisiana in 1895, this first-person multiplayer shooter sees players assume the role of a bounty hunter, aiming to kill a mythical monster and reach an exfiltration point. Now, Crytek has outlined their future plans.
While we've known a new map was on its way, Crytek issued a new press release earlier today, offering fans these new details:
Following Hunt: Showdown’s “As The Crow Flies” live event,
which saw the game break its record for peak concurrent users, Crytek announced today that more content will expand the game soon. A new map will be included in a future game update, a much- requested expansion from the community, alongside a brand-new live event that will offer players the chance to unlock more rewards.
