    Hunt: Showdown - Escape from the Wild West

    https://www.huntshowdown.com/

    PvPvE as they call it nowadays. Wild West style map and weapons.

    You play as a demon hunter either solo or in duos. You spawn on the map and have to hunt "clues" to find a big monster to kill. After you kill it you have to extract by boat/coach/whatever.
    The "hunters" you use are permadeath and you also drop all your gear on death. From what I saw gear can just be bought back again so thatīs no problem.

    Closed Alpha right now, got a key yesterday after signing up 3 days ago so could be I was lucky as fuck or getting in is pretty easy.

    Most of the people that have played it say it's a fun concept but right now is pretty boring..

    Yeah, content is a bit on the low side. I think itīs only two end bosses on basically one map right now. Really just the finished concept of the game but still pretty fun.

    First round I got in I wanted to just try the controls/keybinds and perhaps kill some mobs to get a feel for the guns.

    Ended up reaching the boss first, killing the spider solo, banishing it, killing a player duo while waiting for it and extracting for a perfect round.

    They took the servers down for 3 days or so now to fix some backend problems they had. Hope they come back soon.

    Also good time to sign up for a code as they will drop another wave when the servers are back online.

    GJ on pushing out what looks like a surprisingly polished product more or less out of the blue.

    Will it have staying power/long-term appeal though?

    So is the Crytek lawsuit against CIG aimed at a decent settlement to help fund this or what?

    Anyway, looks interesting, but didn't Evolve try a similar concept?

    From a while back, had a round with a mate that ended up being 2v2v2vSpider in the underground tunnels

    Very good fun, hope they can fix the FPS/Bugs/Progression by launch, if this fails hard it'll probably kill Crytek as a gaming studio
