Crytek has expanded Hunt: Showdown by adding a new quest system to the game with the launch today of Update 1.8.1 on PC. Players will be able to “summon” quests to complete when they enter the bayou, with challenges like taking down specific enemies, killing grunts, locating boss lairs, and more. There are five quest categories to choose from, ranging from Simple to Legendary. Players will earn more stars for completing more difficult challenges. Each week players can earn up to 30 stars, which will offer a maximum reward of 25 Blood Bonds. Additional rewards for completing quests will include in-game items like explosives and pistols, and available quests will rotate and reset every Monday.
The Hunt: Showdown community is invited to help shape the development of this new feature by giving their feedback on the game’s social channels. Players have the chance to see their ideas for quests come to the game. Ideas can be submitted on social media channels using the hashtag “#SuggestAQuest.” Qualifying quest ideas will be collated by the Hunt: Showdown team and a community vote will be held based on a shortlist. The winning idea will be added to a future update to the game.
“The new quest system will give players more control over the in-game challenges they wish to take on and the chance to earn more rewards every day,” said Fatih Özbayram, Senior Producer for Hunt: Showdown. “Hunt is a community-driven game, and this exciting new system will expand and evolve as we progress, shaped by player feedback. We’re also delighted to offer fans the chance to see their idea for a quest implemented in the game. The Hunt community is full of creativity, and we can’t wait to see what ideas players come up with!”
