Hunt: Showdown’s new map ‘DeSalle’ launches

Crytek is delighted to announce that Hunt: Showdown players can set their sights on a range of new experiences and challenges as a new map called DeSalle comes to the game across all platforms.

The new map is the first for Hunt: Showdown in three years and expands the roster of Hunt: Showdown maps to three, joining Still Water Bayou and Lawson Delta as settings for the game’s high risk, high reward competitive match-based gameplay. A foreboding new autumnal theme sets the tone DeSalle, where players will hunt clues, monsters, each other and new Miner Grunt enemies who are equipped with blinding helmet lights. DeSalle features 16 distinct new areas combing the decayed urban sprawl of two Wild West towns alongside expansive mountainous, industrial and farming regions. New urban settings in the map include a prison, church, bank and a saloon. Players will also hunt and fight through a shipyard, watermill, fort, quarry, coal mine and the new farmyard areas.

The new map presents a wide range of new gameplay possibilities and more approaches for players to take towards their target, whether roaming town streets, stalking through a shipyard, or exploring the depths of a quarry.” Hunt: Showdown is out now for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
