If you\u2019re a fan of the first-person shooter genre, then you\u2019ll be happy to know that for a limited time, <i>Hunt: Showdown<\/i> is currently free on the Steam store. This is an incredible deal that should not be passed up.\r\n\r\nDeveloped by Crytek, <i>Hunt: Showdown<\/i> is currently in Early Access. It will be completely free over the weekend, and if you like the game so much, you can get it for 20% off on Monday. So what is this game and what does it offer to fans of the FPS genre? Let\u2019s find out.\r\n\r\nThe game has a lot of layers to it. You\u2019re thrown into a swamp that\u2019s infested with all sorts of monsters. They keep you on the edge of your seat. You\u2019re tasked with tracking down one big monster in particular, and you have the option of having a friend join in on the hunt. It thus makes for some pretty good multiplayer experiences if you don\u2019t like taking a solo approach to gaming.\r\n\r\nAs if that wasn\u2019t hard enough, <i>Hunt: Showdown<\/i> makes you evade players while tracking down monsters. This just adds to the suspense and makes stealth an important tactic to master right out of the gate. It\u2019s one of the more unique games on the market, especially in terms of the atmosphere and sounds it offers.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/m.youtube.com\/watch?v=-MlbAAaqNdA\r\n\r\nYou\u2019ll be hunting around one portion of the swamp and hear creepy sounds coming from looming predators. You don\u2019t see what\u2019s around you, but you know they\u2019re fast-approaching. Quick-decision making is a must in this world if you hope to survive for long.\r\n\r\nThere\u2019s no better way to play this game than with some headphones on. The sounds really immerse you in the environment, adding to the creep-factor.\r\n\r\nAnother shining aspect of this game is you\u2019re not equipped with a lot of weapons or supplies. You thus have to rely on your instincts and develop some sort of strategy before the mission starts.\r\n\r\nSince the game is in Early Access, there are just two monsters you can hunt. These include a giant spider and a butcher. Both put up a fight, but it\u2019s trying to evade other players after making the kill is where the really challenge lies.\r\n\r\nYou have to be smart in your approach because otherwise, you\u2019ll be picked off pretty quickly.\r\n\r\nIf you\u2019re looking for a fun game to experience for a couple of hours this weekend, <i>Hunt: Showdown<\/i> is worth the download.
