Hunt: Showdown is a co-op survival-horror shooter. Developed and published by Crtyek, Hunt: Showdown tasks players with hunting down and banishing demons. While the game has been available on PC via Steam for some months now, there hadn’t been any word of a console release. That changed today on the Gamescom 2018 Inside Xbox show, where Crytek confirmed that Hunt: Showdown is coming to Xbox Game Preview.

No exact release date or price was announced, so we’ll keep you updated as more information comes out.
For more information, here’s the game’s synopsis on Steam:
Savage, nightmarish monsters roam the Louisiana swamps, and you are part of a group of rugged bounty hunters bound to rid the world of their ghastly presence. Banish these creatures from our world, and you will be paid generously—and given the chance to buy more gruesome and powerful weapons. Fail, and death will strip you of both character and gear. Your experience, however, remains in your pool of hunters—called your Bloodline—always.
Hunt’s competitive, match-based gameplay mixes PvP and PvE elements to create a uniquely tense experience where your life, your character, and your gear are always on the line. At the beginning of each match, up to five teams of two set out to track their monstrous targets. Once they’ve found and defeated one of these they will receive a bounty—and instantly become a target for every other Hunter left on the map. If you don’t watch your back, you’ll find a knife in it, and your last memory will be of another team of Hunters walking away with your prize. The higher the risk, the higher the reward–but a single mistake could cost you everything.
