Hunt: Showdown is a first-person shooter which features a blend of competitive and co-op combat. As stated in our preview, “monsters have taken over the world, and in order to survive, humanity must hunt them as close to extinction as possible.” At Gamescom 2018, Microsoft announced that the game was coming to Xbox Game Preview. Almost a year later, it’s available on the console.
Recently, Crytek announced that Hunt: Showdown would launch on the three major platforms this year. The game was supposed to exit early access on PC and Xbox One on August 27, but due to technical issues, was delayed on Xbox One. Unfortunately, PlayStation 4 owners will have to wait until Fall 2019. Luckily, we now have a new release date for the Xbox One port and it brings with it some good news.
Hunt: Showdown will now launch on September 19, priced at around $40. There’s going to be a Legendary Edition as well, but it’s unclear how much that’ll cost at this point. Both versions are Xbox One X Enhanced, so should feature better visuals. Hopefully, the resolution will see a massive boost on Microsoft’s console.
Right now, the game looks absolutely terrible on Xbox One X so it’s good that Crytek delayed the game. Hopefully, the wait will be worth it because, in my opinion, a lot of work needs to be done to elevate the console port. September 19 isn’t that far away!
