Hunt screenCrytek has announced that a new co-op shooter, HUNT: Horrors of the Gilded Age, is currently in development.

The debut game from Crytek USA, a studio formed from former members of Vigil (creators of Darksiders) is set in the late 1800’s where myth and folklore have come to life.

“Players act as hunters willing to take up arms and risk their necks by venturing into the deadliest of territories and facing the hideous creatures that have overrun them.” the official blurb states.

The game will feature a special content generation system, which “ensures that players never encounter the same environment or set of enemies twice”. Players will never know when a boss battle will be coming and defeating the said bosses will require close collaboration between hunters in order to defeat them, according to Crytek.

Crytek USA CEO David Adams said: “In HUNT: Horrors of the Gilded Age, players will be counting their bullets and crying out for help as they delve deeper into the shadowy world we’ve created.

“From the outset of the development process, we’ve poured our imaginations into the game so that everyone who plays HUNT will discover a challenging experience that feels fresh, captivating and rich in possibilities.”

The game will be coming out on PC and consoles (which platforms not known). A closed beta is planned for later in the year on PC, which you can sign up for on the games official site.

The game will be at E3 this year in Cryteks’ booth. You can view the teaser trailer for it below:
