Hunt: Showdown celebrates its landmark fifth anniversary with a brand new Twitch Drops campaign that offers a wide range of rewards, including Legendary Hunter, Kill Buyer, and for the first time, special Hunt Anniversary Crates with various different items in them.
In five years, Hunt has gone from strength to strength, with record-breaking CCUs in the past two years and new content added regularly, including new maps, bosses, live events, and hundreds of weapons. Additions in the last two years alone have included the Stalker Beetle, Questlines, fiery map-changer “The Inferno”, fan favorite boss Scrapbeak, a new map, DeSalle, and much more.
Live Events have offered increasing amounts of rewards, and the Moon Event series that started with Traitor’s Moon and continued through to the most recent Devil’s Moon event have become narrative experiences and gone deeper into the game’s lore. There is always more for current and new players to experience in the Bayou, and there’s never been a better time to play!

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.
