Crytek teased a closed alpha for their upcoming Hunt: Showdown and now the company known for the Crysis series has confirmed the alpha will begin this month on January 31st.

This is for the PC version of the game but the game’s final form will still come to Xbox One and PS4. Those who signed up will be chosen at random and given the chance to play the recent build of the game for testing purposes. You can sign up here for the chance to be chosen.

Hunt: Showdown is a competitive multiplayer bounty hunting game that mixes PvP with PvE elements in a handcrafted sandbox environment. During each match up to ten players, hunting solo or in teams of two, track and kill gruesome monsters for a bounty—when they aren’t tracking and killing each other in order to steal it. During Hunt‘s Closed Alpha phase new content—in the form of new weapons, equipment, traits, and ranks—will be continuously released and tested.

No end date was given for the closed alpha but we’ll gain more specifics when it begins.

Hunt: Showdown is now in development for PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
