We’ve been treated to quite a few great PvP and PvE games over the years, but Hunt: Showdown is one of the few titles we’ve seen that promises to offer a convincing blend of both styles. in Hunt: Showdown, players will be grouped into pairs and tasked with hunting down monsters across a variety of horror-themed maps. Finding the area’s main monster and defeating the various threats that roam around each level will require teams to work together. However, only one squad can claim the bounty and win the day.
This combination of competitive and cooperative gameplay figures to make Hunt one of the more fascinating online multiplayer experiences on the horizon. Do you wait until another team has beaten the monster and try to take the now-powerful hunters out? Do you go it alone? Do you forge alliances you intend to break? Will you be able to survive the horror’s of the night at all? These are the questions the game poses.
