Hunt: Showdown will receive a huge performance improvement during Early Access

Throughout the next week, Hunt: Showdown will receive a vast performance update. This has been the only goal Crytek has been aiming at for the past period, and during the next week, players will receive the very needed performance update.

It is expected CPUs issues to no longer choke the frame rates, and further optimization memory will help reduce the stutter and stall. As Crytek noted, their aim is becoming real very soon, and the primary focus is about the following:

  • CPU optimizations (Hunt was CPU bound, which was a major limiting factor in many cases)
  • Reducing the overall memory footprint of the game
  • Addressing the stalls and stutters (during movement, ADS, and other in-game interactions)

Thanks to these changes, players will experience a lot smoother gameplay, especially when they are in a fight and need to ADS, as usual. Crytek favors releasing quality content before anything else. Therefore, players and community should be a lot more satisfied with where things are heading.

The changes will be available to encounter on the test servers so that interested players can feel the touch and tweaks Crytek has performed.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
