A new gameplay trailer has dropped for Hunt: Showdown which succinctly tells you how the game works through its two minute run time. We already knew from past footage that players would be hunting monsters in an open world with a partner, while also having to be careful of other players in the game. There can be no all guns blazing approach since death is permanent in the game.
As you can see in the trailer being successful in hunting the main creature isn’t the end of the matter as you then have to escape with the bounty, which attracts everyone and everything to you. While Hunt Showdown won’t be getting a full release until next year it will be entering early access on Steam soon.
