Hunt: Showdown

*EARLY ACCESS GAME* Hunt: Showdown is a competitive first-person PvP bounty hunting game with heavy PvE elements, from the makers of Crysis. Set in the darkest corners of the world, it packs the thrill of survival games into a match-based format.

Anybody else playing this? I woke up to an alpha invite over the weekend and have played a few rounds (won nothing yet). I still haven't gotten a good hold on the game and how to be `good` (playing solo doesn't help that I guess), but I think the foundation for the game is awesome and it feels pretty polished for an EA game. I imagine they're trying to do early access "right" (IMO) which is having the core game ready and adding the rest of the content/fixing bugs as they come along instead of throwing a broken shoddy build into people's hands early on.

I got the gist of the game as being sort of a L4D type game in the Crytek engine from the videos, and was excited from that alone (didn't watch/read too much). Playing it, it's much different but in a good way. This video explains the concept well:

this actually looks really interesting. The gameplay looks complex, like they really thought it out well.
