Crytek has announced Hunt: Horrors of the Gilded Age, a third-person action game where up to four players join forces to fend off bloodthirsty creatures and track down breathtaking bosses.
Hunt is the debut title from Crytek USA Corp, and is in development for PC and consoles. The game is set in the 19th century in a world where myths and folklore are actually covering up the true evils that lurk in the world. Players will take on the role of hunters as they take up arms and go in search of these creatures in the deadliest of territories.
A content generation system ensures that “players never encounter exactly the same environment or set of enemies twice,” according to the developer. “As the surprises come thick and fast, the terror of knowing that one of the game’s grueling boss battles could be just around the corner will keep everyone’s pulses pounding.”
“In HUNT: Horrors of the Gilded Age, players will be counting their bullets and crying out for help as they delve deeper into the shadowy world we’ve created,” said David Adams, CEO of Crytek USA Corp. “From the outset of the development process, we’ve poured our imaginations into the game so that everyone who plays HUNT will discover a challenging experience that feels fresh, captivating and rich in possibilities.”
Hunt: Horrors of the Gilded Age is set to enter closed beta testing on PC later this year, and players can sign-up for it here.
