    Still on its way even after it was thought to be dead looks fabulous it's teams of 2 vs other teams and masses of horror.

    "Hunt: Showdown is like Van Helsing meets Cthulhu", is how our Steven describes Hunt: Showdown, PC Gamer's E3 2017 Game of Show, before then comparing it to DayZ, Monster Hunter, Resident Evil, and Stalker. Even if you missed the teaser trailer that seeped out of the Los Angeles Convention Centre show floor last week, that billing alone would suggest it's onto something good.

    Steven shared his full thoughts over here, however Crytek—the folks behind the Crysis series—has now unveiled some extended E3 footage which showcases the game in its alpha state. Within you'll find a healthy serving of "tense match-based first-person PvP" monster hunting which, to be honest, looks pretty horrifying.

    I thought it looked great. There is another similar game called Escape From Tarkov.

    Hopefully Crytek will last the month to actually finish this. It still amazes me how the owners have run the company into the ground all for that pipe dream of FTP.

    The basic gameplay sounds a little unbalanced. Five teams of two, all hunting a target... but when the target is killed, the winning team becomes a target for the other four? And becomes visible too? I hope they have found a way to make sure the winners don't get skinned alive every single time.

    Oh. That sounds a little less interesting.

    I thought it was more like you're all in a huge map where there are weird NPC monsters and just happen to be other teams. You're hunting the monsters for missions/loot, which enable you to get better and fight the other teams of players more effectively. So it would be a balance between levelling-up killing NPCs and hunting the other teams. Hmmm.

    Anyone gotten into beta? I got a key and just blindly jumped in. Totally clueless what to do but managed to kill 4 others before I and my teammate were wiped out. Second time tried to start a solo game twice but it just didn't seem to work for me - loading just stuck.

    Still waiting for my key :(

    Annoying as my friend has one and he's waiting for me to get one before jumping in.

    Watched the jackfrags video and this looks pretty good. Maybe a bit clunky but the atmosphere and concept are pretty sweet. Hopefully has enough monsters to keep things interesting, the spider was horrible!

    Got a key, just triedplaying it and it's definitely nowhere near ready. I ended up lagging out. The guns feel like cap guns which Isuppose is the idea, seemed pretty good with very nice graphics but I'll need to play it a lot more yet

    I've played a few games of the alpha so far and I'm enjoying it although I do wonder about its lasting appeal. I absolutely adore the aesthetic and the monsters are really creepy, especially the spider which I find deeply disturbing. I'll definitely be keeping my eye on this one...

    Bloody hell.

    I had the beta available for about 3 days. Got 1 game with a friend and my resolution and frame rate were totally fucked. And now it wants 26 quid to continue bug testing for them... Nnrghhh.

    If this goes the way of evolve (which I personally enjoyed btw) they are fucked.

    I really liked Evolve too. Not seen a lot of this, but if it's along the same lines, colour me intrigued. I believe it's more PvP type stuff against other 'humans' rather than the lop-sided PvP of Evolve (ie group of players vs big monster player)?

    Evolve was a strange one. It was generally ok but somehow it did break the immersion once you had the beast locked into a closed bubble. That was a strange design choice.

    I went and purchased this anyway - I really liked those few games I played. The atmosphere is really great - the environment is really nicely designed with all the details. I just hope that they'll have other maps as well.

    Really do hope this takes off and what he needs is a free weekend as the stats show that it's gone from over 10k to 2k a day. GG btw, best played with friends and if you like L4D, Dying Light, Resi, Evolve then you'll love this.
