IGN can exclusively reveal that Hunt: Showdown – Crytek’s unique monster-hunting survival-shooter – will have an Early Access release on Steam.
“You want to create an experience that goes from the game into the player,” says Creative Director Magnus Larbrant. “These guys are really into your world and they’re having fun right? And that’s what I want, too. I think Early Access for our game is the best thing that could ever happen.”
It’s clear from watching the Developer Diary up above that the team sees the game as an open-ended, collaborative project between the development team based in Frankfurt and its future players.
“We really have to engage the players, man,” continues Larbrant. “I’m completely open-minded. I know the designers are open-minded… Not over-promise things. Just tell this is where we are and this is where we’re going to get to.”
