The new live event will play out in two acts. In act one, players will investigate event-themed clues, smash bird skeletons, hunt down murders of crows, and take down bosses to earn Event Points in order to unlock the brand-new boss, Scrapbeak. Which in turn will trigger act two of the event.
In act two, players’ Event Points will go towards their personal progression to unlock exclusive event-related gear. Once players hit their daily Event Point cap, they’ll still be able to play but instead of receiving Event Points they will be rewarded with Hunter XP for the rest of the day.
Throughout the event, Reliquaries will be available which will boost Event Points for the player and gift others in the match with other valuable Hunter items- these will be exclusively available during the event. Players will be able to get Reliquaries in the roster or in the event store.
“We’re thanking everyone who has joined us on the Hunt: Showdown journey with a free new Legendary Chain Pistol and an Iron Reliquary for participating in this event and the chance to unlock new Legendary Items and a new Legendary Hunter,” said Loïc Raimond, Live Service Producer for Hunt: Showdown. “Our previous live events have proved really popular. The team has cooked up something special for this event to celebrate three years of Hunt, and we can’t wait to see the community working together in the bayou.”
Hunt: Showdown is out now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, and players can find out more about the game and the latest Live Event by visiting www.huntshowdown.com.
About Hunt: Showdown
Hunt: Showdown is a competitive first-person bounty hunting game that packs the thrill of survival games into a match-based format. Set in Louisiana in 1895, the game boasts a mixture of PvP and PvE elements that creates a uniquely tense experience. It’s not just the creatures who are a threat—it’s every Hunter on the map. In the classic game mode, a match of Hunt pits 12 players—playing solo or in teams of two or teams of three —against each other as they race to take out gruesome beasts for a bounty they must collect and get off of the map, while Hunt’s quickplay mode offers a shorter match for solo players to scavenge for weapons as they compete for a diminishing pool of bounty. The higher the risk, the higher the reward–but a single mistake could cost everything. Hunt is available now on Steam. For more information, visit www.huntshowdown.com.
