Hunt: Showdown Closed Alpha To Start January 2018
(Last Updated On: December 22, 2017)

Crytek has announced the closed alpha date for Hunt: Showdown. The first person-shooter game that sees multiple hunters seeking to kill one or more unworldly entities will have a PC closed alpha to kick-off come January of 2018.

If you have no clue what Hunt: Showdown is about, the game in question sees multiple hunters, some on a team or lone-wolf, hunting down various ghoulish or demonic beings. The goal is to find the biggest and most loot worthy monster and extract all of its goods before another team of hunters find you and the monster’s resources.

Various monsters will spawn, which includes big bad creatures, and after coming out alive (something that’s difficult to do) you will keep all of the loot found in that match. If you die, you lose everything and go straight to hell.

Sounds fun? If so, you can join in early and get your name in the closed alpha system by heading on over to, which can be seen below.

Folks who’ve sighed up in the past and feel confused about the whole situation, you can get a better picture of what’s going on by reading a developer’s explanation of the closed alpha below.

The good news for fans looking to jump into Hunt: Showdown is that this closed alpha is only a couple of weeks to a month away from dropping for a limited amount of gamers to test and play.
