Official artwork and logo for Crytek's Hunt: Showdown

After spending a fair bit of time in beta, Crytek's PvE/PvP hybrid Hunt: Showdown has now been officially released. So if you're up for hunting a whole bunch of dangerous monsters, as well as fighting against your fellow players in order to actually claim your bounty, Hunt: Showdown might just be up your alley. It certainly is an interesting mix of gameplay styles.

Besides the premise itself, the one thing that makes Hunt: Showdown really stand out is the atmosphere. With excellent sound design and relatively slow paced action, Hunt: Showdown can be surprisingly immersive for a PvP focused game. So much so that I'm a bit disappointed it isn't an entirely co-op focused monster hunting game instead. Now that would be spectacular!

My little musings aside, allow me to share with you the recently posted launch trailer. It should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect from Hunt: Showdown. Have a peek:
