Darksiders' Creators Are Making An 1800's-Themed Co-op Shooter

Crytek USA's debut title will be a third-person co-op game. With 1800's guns and 1800's zombies.


The game is called HUNT, and it features a band of four badasses whose sole job is to hunt down dangerous creatures. They do so in procedurally generated encounters, on procedurally generated levels, as they occasionally come across the odd boss fight:

David Adams, CEO of Crytek USA Corp., said: "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. 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."

Set in the late 1800s, HUNT depicts a world where so-called myths and folklore actually point to the terrifying truth about evil lurking just beyond the fringes of day-to-day life. Players act as hunters willing to take up arms and risk their necks by venturing into the deadliest of territories and facing the hideous creatures that have overrun them.

Adding to the thrill of the hunt is a special content generation system that ensures players never encounter exactly the same environment or set of enemies twice. 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. Defeating bosses will require close collaboration between hunters as they attempt to figure out and take down some truly terrifying monsters.

HUNT: Horrors of the Gilded Age will be entering closed beta on PC later this year, and will also be present at E3 2014.


Seems like this will be the closest we get to a new Hunter: The Reckoning game. And I'm totally cool with that.
