Crytek Announces Release Date For Hunt: Showdown, Koch Media To Distribute Physical Release

Multiplayer fanatics are in for a treat, with Crytek announcing today that their bounty hunting game Hunt: Showdown will be releasing on PC and Xbox on August 27 this year.

In addition to this digital release, Crytek is partnering with Koch Media to bring the retail version of Hunt to stores worldwide. Great news for those who like their games the good ol’ fashioned way with a physical copy.

Unfortunately Playstation fans will be in for a bit more of a wait, with the game not slated for release until spring.

Hunt has been in Early Access on PC since February 2018 and only recently joined Xbox’s Game Preview program in May of 2019. Since then, it has received 20 updates and patches including a new boss, map, two new times of day, additional AI, Quick Play and more than a dozen weapons.

Fans of the dedicated community will also be rewarded for their support, with all players who purchased early access being gifted a Legendary Weapon skin.
