Today Hunt: Showdown launches Tide of Desolation, which will run until February 14th, 2024. The game’s latest event brings a paranormal fog to the bayou. Hunters can choose between three different Pacts to pledge to, each with exciting new Traits. With the brand-new Wildcard Condition, Ash Bloom, flurries of ash and insects drift up from the Land of the Dead, affecting visibility and keeping animals in a state of alert.

Players can pledge their Hunters to The Demented Pact, The Drowned Pact, or The Grounded Pact to gain access to exclusive new Traits, such as Shadow Leap, which enables Hunters to teleport to a monster's location, killing it instantly. The event brings other updates to the game, such as the new Martialist Trait, some new controller behavior, and more.

“We can’t wait for players to take on new challenges as we launch Tide of Desolation,” said Scott Lussier, Design Director for Hunt: Showdown. “The newest Event Traits and weapon variants will bring thrilling changes to the Hunt gameplay experience. Additionally, the new Katana is sure to be a favorite.”

Players earn Event Points by completing in-game Challenges, interacting with Spine Altars, and more.

Hunt: Showdown is available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Find out more about Tide of Desolation by visiting
