Crytek’s online multiplayer bounty hunting game, Hunt: Showdown, is FREE! That is, for one weekend it’s free. But it’s still pretty cool.
From now until December 16 at 9:55 AM Pacific, the entirety of Hunt: Showdown can be experienced for zero dollars — this includes all recent additions, all legendary weapons and hunters, and current (holiday-themed) events. And if you like the experience, you can get the game at a 30% discount. We should mention that all of this applies to the PC version only — this game is also available on XBox One and it sadly isn’t free there.
In Hunt: Showdown you’re a gun-toting hunter in nineteenth-century Louisiana, and you’re knee-deep in a swamp swarming with more than just alligators. Deadly monsters roam around these parts, and their hides fetch a pretty penny. But it’s not just them you have to watch out for — it’s every hunter for themselves, and the others have no qualms with eliminating the competition!
That’s why it’s better to play in teams of two or three, though you can brave Hunt: Showdown solo if you want. The Classic Mode is meant for teams, but the Quick Play mode is good for a match alone as everyone scavenges for a diminishing reward.
Hunter: Showdown is available on PC and XBox One.
