Developers Crytek recently posted in the official Hunt: Showdown Subreddit, announcing that as part of update 1.7 for the game, theyd be raising the frame rate cap to 60 for Xbox Series S/X and PS5.
We would like to announce that with Update 1.7 we will remove the cap of 30 FPS for the Xbox Series S/X and PS5. This will allow those of you on the newest generation of consoles to play Hunt at up to 60FPS.
This is followed up by what else players can expect in the near future, including custom loadouts and improvements to the previous generation console versions of the game.
The team is always working to improve the gameplay experience for as many players as we can. A lot of big features are coming with Update 1.7 such as the reconnect support feature and custom loadouts. So, we felt this was the perfect time to add one more long standing community request to that list.
So what are the next steps?
In the new year, we will be working to bring some improvements to the previous generation of consoles. Our next step will be to ensure a consistent and stable 30 FPS for all our players on Xbox One & Playstation 4.
The community response has been nothing short of joyous. While a success, Hunt: Showdown isnt the MOST popular game in the market over the last few years. For the game to see development effort and improvements like this, three years after release, is assuring. Though only days ago, Crytek also announced that the game is getting a live action tv series adaption, so clearly it's doing well.
Update 1.7 should be rolling out today for PC, with an expected 2-week delay before hitting consoles.
