Hunt: Showdown Update 1.1 Now Available For PC
It was less than two months ago when Hunt: Showdown hit official 1.0 release status on PC, but the developers behind the acclaimed bounty hunter game have continued to put in work behind the scenes culminating in today’s 1.1 update.
The new update, available on PC, adds in a new strategic weapon – the Choke Bomb. This grenade-like device emits a fire-retardant gas in a small area that will extinguish any fire it touches and prevent new fires from being started. The gas also forces those within it to cough heavily, making them easier to locate.
In addition to the Choke Bomb, a pair of Legendary weapons (Southern Belle and Sins of the Son) were added, along with Legendary DLC items and a pair of Legendary characters.
Hunt: Showdown is currently available for PC and Xbox One.
Here’s the press release:
HUNT: SHOWDOWN RELEASES NEW UPDATE FOR PC
Update 1.1 brings new weapons, Legendary DLC, and many other improvements to Crytek’s multiplayer bounty hunting game
FRANKFURT, Germany – Oct. 18, 2019 – Crytek has released PC Update 1.1 for the online multiplayer bounty hunting game Hunt: Showdown. Having recently launched out of early access, Hunt: Showdown’s development team is already well in the habit of releasing frequent updates driven by player feedback, and 1.1 continues that tradition.
Among the community requests in Update 1.1 are the Stay-in-Lobby feature and the new Choke Bomb, which can extinguish most fires (though it will also make your Hunter cough, alerting players to your location). Other additions in the update include the Bornheim Nr 3 Match, improvements to UI, localization, gunplay, and AI, and all-new Legendary content.
The Legendary weapons arriving with Update 1.1 include an elegantly detailed Romero 77 called the Southern Belle, as well as Sins of the Son, a brutal and bloody Romero 77. In addition to these two new weapons, 1.1 brings three Legendary DLC items: the Last Gust, a Legendary Winfield M1873 Swift rifle, and two new Legendary characters: Phantom and Llorona’s Heir. The Last Gust DLC can be purchased for 3.99 USD/EUR, while the Phantom and Llorona’s Heir DLCs can be purchased for 4.99 USD/EUR each.
Hunt: Showdown is available for PC on Steam and the Crytek Shop, as well as on Xbox One in the Microsoft store. For more information, visit https://www.huntshowdown.com.
