After releasing the first images, Crytek broadcast live the gameplay of Hunt: Showdown for the first time, the new title of Crytek enhanced – logically – by the superb CRYENGINE graphic engine.
Hunt: Showdown – First Video Gameplay Video and Screenshots
Hunt: Showdown (then called Hunt: Horrors of the Gilded Age) is a PvE and PvP title consisting of five teams of two players, who will have to search and eliminate demons on large maps. In short, a mix between Battle Royale mode on teams and Evolve, with permanent death.

As expected, the look of the game is the best we can see today in graphics, perhaps even surpassing popular engines like Frostbite 3 and the popular Unreal Engine 4. Below you can see new screenshots:
