From Press Release:

FRANKFURT, Germany  May 25, 2021  Following Hunt: Showdown’s “As The Crow Flies” live event, which saw the game break its record for peak concurrent users, Crytek announced today that more content is coming soon. A future game update will bring a new map – a much-requested expansion from the community  – alongside a brand-new live event that will offer players the chance to unlock more rewards. You can get a sneak peek at the new map and content coming to the game in the “Dark Sight” trailer, which also features several Easter Eggs for eagle-eyed hunters to spot.

This substantial new content is part of an ongoing series of updates to the game, including quality-of-life upgrades to enhance performance and stability, plus matchmaking improvements to deliver more balanced matches for both newcomers and experienced players alike. Hunt: Showdown has been regularly expanded since launch, and the game now features 30 Legendary Hunters, over 90 Legendary weapons, over 35 tools and consumables, and over 80 guns. The “As The Crow Flies” live event saw the arrival of a new boss, Scrapbeak, in the bayou. Regular releases of DLC packs also serve the game’s growing community, which recently passed the 100,000 member mark on Discord.

“The response to our ‘As The Crow Flies’ live event was phenomenal,” said Fatih Özbayram, Senior Producer, Hunt: Showdown. “Building on that success, we’re excited to announce that a new live event will come to the game soon, plus a new map which will present Hunters with new challenges and enemies. In addition to creating new content, we’re always looking to improve every aspect of the game to serve our friendly and welcoming community, which continues to grow with every update. There’s never been a better time to play Hunt.“
