Hunt: Showdown beta gets update 3.0
New map added for testing in multiplayer bounty hunt game
Crytek has announced the release of Update 3.0 for the early access first-person multiplayer bounty hunting game Hunt: Showdown.
The update contains NVIDIA highlights, as well as many changes intended to improve the overall user experience, the biggest of which are the additions of a new Louisiana map—called Lawson Delta—for beta testing and skill-based matchmaking.
The Lawson Delta map also contains a brand-new Time of Day setting: Daylight. The updated skill-based matchmaking system is based on the Elo rating and should solve many of the past issues players have experienced. Update 3.0 also includes free tier 1 Hunters (replacing Tier 0 Hunters—and equipped with gear that cannot be resold), weapons-looting, a cash register sandbox feature, and one new weapon: the Nagant Officer Brawler.
Hunt: Showdown is currently in Steam's Early Access program. The game is also planned for release in Game Preview on Xbox One.
