Updated August 26, 2019: Hunt: Showdown has been delayed on Xbox One. The team feels that it doesn't live up to the quality of the PC version. According to a recent report by WCCFtech, it looks like Xbox One X enhancements are coming to the game now that it's been pushed back.
Hunt: Showdown is a first-person shooter which features a blend of competitive and cooperative combat. As stated in our preview, "monsters have taken over the world, and in order to survive, humanity must hunt them as close to extinction as possible." At Gamescom 2018, Microsoft announced that the game was coming to Xbox Game Preview. Almost a year later, it's available on the console.
Today, Crytek announced that Hunt: Showdown will launch on three major platforms this year. The game will exit early access on PC and Xbox One on August 27 and cost $40. Unfortunately, PlayStation 4 owners will have to wait until Fall 2019.
Currently, Hunt: Showdown doesn't appear to feature any Xbox One X enhancements. Let's hope this changes in the future because it looks quite blurry. It's clear that a lot of work still needs to be done on the console port. Due to its unfinished nature, you can pick it up for $30 on the Microsoft Store right now.
Keep on shooting
