HUNTDOWN LAUNCHES ON STEAM AND GOG WITH NEW GAME MODE AND RELEASES LONG-AWAITED ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK
Coffee Stain Publishing and Easy Trigger’s critically-renowned, cult-classic action shooter Huntdown has launched onto Steam and GOG with a new game mode, online multiplayer and releases its revered soundtrack!
SKÖVDE, Sweden – May 12, 2021: Coffee Stain Publishing and Easy Trigger Games have today released Huntdown onto Steam and GOG, alongside its original, synth-pumping soundtrack. This comes alongside an update bringing new Arcade game mode to Steam and Epic Games Store, and allows players to fight crime with friends online with Steam Remote Play.
Huntdown’s new arcade mode brings the much-loved competitive experience of old school arcades to players everywhere. The new score-based game mode sees players face off on the global leaderboard for top spot, by completing missions in the most creatively violent way possible! Multi-kills; quickdraw weapon-swap bonuses; kicking criminals off the rooftops; these will all add up as players compete for the title of apex bounty hunter. In addition to the regular chaos, players will be facing the hordes with a range of over-the-top weapons trying to collect as many bounties as possible against the clock. Arcade mode is now available on Steam, GOG and Epic Games Store, and will be available on all other platforms shortly.
Exclusively for the Steam community, players will now be able to enjoy this with friends remotely, with the Remote Play Together feature. Shortlisted at the SXSW Awards in the ‘Excellence in Multiplayer’ category, Huntdown’s multiplayer mode offers players the authentic multiplayer arcade experience to the modern day, minus the clashing of elbows!
Huntdown is out now on Steam for $19.99, with a one week 20% launch discount.
For those yet to play Huntdown, it is an old-school arcade inspired shooter with a modern, tactical twist. Players battle through a dystopian, cyberpunk future as one of three unique bounty hunters, pumping lead and thousands of one-liners into criminals as they traverse the beautifully hand painted 16-bit pixel art backdrop. Players can run, slide, and take cover as bullets fly around them, jump-kick enemies in the air, and take them out with an insane variety of murderous combinations.
Alone or in pairs, players can enjoy fluid action-packed 60-FPS gameplay, and an epic 80s soundtrack pumping dark wave, industrial synth, hard rock and electro through 20 unique levels.
Tommy Gustafsson, Co-Founder and Director at Easy Trigger commented:
We’ve been so excited to bring old and new fans of Huntdown new content to show off their bounty hunting skills. We’re also delighted to be able to bring the multiplayer Huntdown experience to players unable to meet up with their buddies in person. We can’t wait to see the battle break out for top spot on the Steam global leaderboard!
