Hunt: Showdown is a game that I literally learned about 20 minutes ago when I watched this gameplay for posting. However, now that I’ve seen it, I really, really want to play this game with my buddies, because it looks like Hellboy X Left 4 Dead. Hellboy in the whole “hunting supernatural monsters with fire and guns” sense, and L4D in terms of the co-op multiplayer. The atmosphere is fantastic from what I’ve seen here, even though it’s only pre-alpha footage, it’s hauntingly beautiful for being an action game.
I know that a lot of people have tried to re-capture the magic of L4D, and many have failed *cough* Evolve *cough*. I hope that this game ends up being as good as it looks right now, and that it ends up being one of those games that every friend group spends all night playing together. Check out the trailer above and let us know what you think!
