The Hunt: Showdown fans have to be strong again. The year 2020 is still not over with its atrocities! The much-anticipated content of Update 1.5 has to be postponed to 2021. The developers made amends with teaser pictures that give us an insight into their plans for the next year.

This is the current situation: Crytek’s co-op shooter has already impressed with numerous new content patches in the past. Update 1.5 should continue this approach – but has to be divided by the current situation.

More news about Hunt: Showdown

Two features planned for version 1.5 – the new boss and the custom ammo – will not make it into the game in 2020.

Reduced update 1.4.8 will be released in December

This is planned: Instead of moving the complete Hunt: Showdown update to next year, Crytek decided to release the remaining features as update 1.4.8 by the end of this year. This includes:

  • New Loot type, hidden on the map
  • New weapon variants
  • Watchtowers
  • Legendaries
  • Gameplay improvements

Promisingly announced for 1.4.8 were also “some surprises”. The developers do not yet reveal what the surprise or even the new lot type on the map is about. But they announce to reveal more information in an upcoming Livestream.
