Hunt Showdown Early Access

Early Access to Hunt Showdown is now available on Steam, offering first crack at Crytek's new game that launches the "competitive first-person PvP bounty hunting game with heavy PvE elements" genre. "Early access is a big milestone for the team, and we are all excited to finally be releasing Hunt: Showdown out into the wild," said Creative Director Magnus Larbrant. "With Hunt, we wanted to make the game that we, as gamers, have always wanted to play ourselves: tense, dark, addictive, terrifying—a real adrenaline-pumping experience. We have the foundations laid out, and now with the support and input of the community during early access, we can polish that experience together." The early access launch trailer shows the concept in action, and there are bountiful details in the description:
Hunt: Showdown is a competitive first-person bounty hunting game with heavy PvE elements 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. Hunt’s competitive, match-based gameplay mixes PvP and PvE elements to create a uniquely tense experience. At the beginning of each match, up to five teams of two set out to track monstrous targets. 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.

Been playing the Alpha for a while.

Not a bad game at all. I'd say if somehow they found a way to incorporate PVE in a separate game mode, then it would appeal to a wider gaming audience.

That being said, if they price it right, I think this game could do well.

Only negative I have from a game play standpoint is all the players I have played with that do not have a microphone. I know headsets with mics are not standard, nor is buying a standalone mic normal, but I'm surprised at the amount of people who put in to play that Alpha that don't have either. Pain in the ass to try to coordinate when you cant have two way communication.

Oh and the hit boxes need a little work, but thats why its an alpha!
I never wanted to do this job in the first place! I... I wanted to be... A LUMBERJACK! Leaping from tree to tree! As they float down the mighty rivers of British Columbia! With my best girl by my side! The Larch! The Pine! The Giant Redwood tree! The Seq
