PC players will be able to play Hunt: Showdown during multiple closed alpha testing phases this winter, Crytek has revealed today. This news comes just one month after Crytek announced that Hunt — a competitive, first-person, multiplayer bounty hunting game with heavy PvE elements — will be released on Steam Early Access.
“Closed alpha will be our first chance to get player feedback, and we are really excited to see how they will interact with the game,” explained Hunt: Showdown producer Fatih Özbayram. “After initial tests with a very limited amount of players, we are planning to invite more and more testers with each phase. This is the first step in building a close relationship with our community and integrating their feedback into our development process, something we plan on continuing—and intensifying—during early access.”
