For those who know me, I’ve been obsessed with Hunt: Showdown. The dark, western themed survival horror title is an incredible change to such an over saturated market. Not much is known about the turn of events that leave the world in a mangled mess, but the display and atmosphere is by far the best I’ve seen in a long time.
In Hunt: Showdown, players are bounty hunters that are sent to kill high valued monsters in the swamps of Louisiana. Zombies, Hell Hounds, and gross creatures called Hives liter the land scape tormenting players at every turn. However, monsters are the least of your worries. Other players are after the same bounties, and will do anything neccessary to get it. The game’s unforgiving perma-death system punishes players by permanently killing off characters and losing all equipment forcing you to start over. It’s a brutally good time that is worth every second of your indoor adventures against covid-19.
