Crytek has announced new co-op shooter HUNT: Horrors of the Gilded Age for PC and consoles.
In development at Crytek USA, the studio formed by former Vigil (Darksiders) employees, HUNT is described as a third-person action game where up to four players "band together to fend off an onslaught of bloodthirsty creatures and track down breathtaking bosses."
Set in the late 1800s, HUNT depicts a world where myths and folklore come to life. Players act as hunters willing to take up arms and venture into the deadliest of territories.
Crytek promises "a special content generation system" that it says will ensure players never encounter exactly the same environment or set of enemies twice. Defeating boss enemies will require close collaboration between hunters, it says.
HUNT: Horrors of the Gilded Age is scheduled to enter Closed Beta testing on PC later this year, and players can sign up now.
David Adams, CEO of Crytek USA, 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."
