Hunt: Showdown may just be one of the most exciting first person PvP bounty hunters out there. But today it is asking you to do just one thing – Live by the Blade – as new downloadable content packs begin to offer up even further opportunities.
Available to download and add into your Hunt: Showdown experience right this minute are two new DLC options, both focusing around the chance for you to live by the blade, or die trying.
The main overarcing element here is the Live by the Blade pack. Priced at £6.69 as an individual purchase, this will thrust four new weapons into play: the Farrier’s Fist, the Reaper’s Hand, The Rasp and the Malice. Details of each of these as follows:
- Farrier’s Fist – Forged in a dying fire, the Farrier’s Fist puts the rough in roughshod. A horseshoe turned-melee-weapon, these improvised dusters have helped more than one Hunter out of a tough spot.
- Reaper’s Hand – More than just a farm tool repurposed as a heavy knife, the Reaper’s Hand gained infamy thanks to its deadly silhouette, striking terror in the heart of timid Hunters.
- The Rasp – Among the cruelest of weapons found in the bayou, pray that when you face The Rasp your killer uses it as a knuckle knife. Its first owner, notoriously cruel, was fond of using it for its original purpose: as a drill.
- Malice – Crafted with rage and wielded with malice, this gruesome combat axe came to be when a desperate Hunter was forced to repair the blade in the field with barbed wire in the midst of a revenge-fueled melee slaughter.
The other option you have though is to take home the full Hunt: Showdown – The Companion Bundle. This is significantly more expensive – running at £16.24 – but not only does it allow you full access to everything within the Live by the Blade pack, but it drops no less than 2500 Blood Bonds in for good measure. And if you’ve ever played Hunt: Showdown, you’ll know that the more Blood Bonds you have, the better. Considering 2500 Blood Bonds will normally set you back £20.99 alone, there’s certainly good value found here.
As always you’ll have to first have the base game of Hunt: Showdown in hand, but from there a visit to your local digital store will see you set right. For us that means hitting up the Xbox Store.
