Crytek seems to be on a roll, seeing as they have announced two games since yesterday. The first was a continuation of the Homefront franchise with Homefront: The Revolution. The title announced today goes by the name of Hunt: Horrors of the Gilded Age, and it looks like it’s quite the departure from what Crytek normally brings us.
After a PC beta, Hunt is set to release this fall and will come to PC and consoles from the Crytek United States branch. The game will be third-person and feature procedural elements. For those of you who haven’t heard this wonderful term, it means that the gameplay will change depending on certain factors. In this case the environment and enemies will be changing around the player.
When it comes to the enemies, you’ll be pitted head to head against supernatural baddies. From the trailer there appears to be zombies, a necromancer/voodoo witch, and something that looks reptilian. There’s not very much to go on when it comes to the trailer, but there will be more at E3. For now, here’s the trailer to keep you occupied.
The game looks four player; I love multiplayer. The game is procedural; who doesn’t love games that change depending on what you do? It sounds like an old style Supernatural (yes, the TV series); and I happen to be a fan of Supernatural. I won’t say I’m foaming at the mouth over this one, I need to know more before that can happen. However, I do want to know more. What kind of enemies will we be fighting? What kind of customization can we do with our hunters? What kinds of gear and combat tactics will be available? All of this will hopefully be answered come E3.
