Hunt: Showdown for PS4 launches February 18

First-person bounty hunting game gets a release date on Sony's console.

Hunt: Showdown

The PlayStation 4 version of first-person bounty hunting game Hunt: Showdown will launch on February 18, publisher Koch Media and developer Crytek announced.

Hunt: Showdown will be available both physically and digitally for PlayStation 4. A physical edition of the August 2019-released Xbox One version will be available on the same day as the PlayStation 4 release.

Crytek will continue to add new content to Hunt: Showdown over the next year via regular updates. The version 1.2 update will include random teams of three, an advanced tutorial, new Legendary Hunters, new equipment and weapons, server-side performance improvements, client CPU performance fixes, and a number of other general bug fixes.

Beyond the version 1.2 update, bigger updates will add cross-play between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, a solo player-versus-enemy mode, live events, outfit customization, and a new map.

Here is an overview of Hunt: Showdown, via Crytek:

Hunt: Showdown is a competitive first-person bounty hunting game that packs the thrill of survival games into a match-based format. Set in Louisiana in 1895, the game boasts a mixture of player-versus-player and player-versus-enemy elements that creates a uniquely tense experience. It is not just the creatures who are a threat—it is every Hunter on the map.

In the classic game mode, a match of Hunt pits 12 players—playing solo or in teams of two or teams of three—against each other as they race to take out gruesome beasts for a bounty they must collect and get off of the map, while Hunt’s quickplay mode offers a shorter match for solo players to scavenge for weapons as they compete for a diminishing pool of bounty. The higher the risk, the higher the reward–but a single mistake could cost everything.

Hunt is available now on Xbox One and PC via Steam. For more information, visit the official website.
