Even in the late nineteenth century, the spectre of the dead coming to life looms large. So it's time to pick up some rusted weapons and put them back in their place. Crytek has unveiled a the debut game from their U.S. branch, a brand new IP titled HUNT: Horrors of the Gilded Age.

Set to come to PC and consoles, HUNT sees up to four players team up for co-op action, utilizing late turn-of-the-century weaponry to take out rising monsters and large bosses. Various aspects of the game will be procedurally-generated, resulting in players encountering different monsters and different environments for each playthrough. Monster placement will also be randomly determined, leading to some potential scares hiding behind each stage's walls.

Not much else is known about HUNT at this time, but Crytek USA promises to reveal more at E3. Beta sign-ups are available on the game's website. In the meantime, here's the game's first trailer.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      SquareEnix has the excuse that they are not native English speakers but Crytek USA has no excuse for such a terrible title.

      I'm so ready for some good new co-op games. These are the same guys that did Darksiders right? Sounds really promising.

        No. They did Crysis. Darksiders was Vigil.

          Yes, but when Vigil shut down, Crytek scooped up a bunch of people and formed Crytek USA. So you are both correct.

            They should do a Grips game with Tim Vigil.

      Say FIRST not 3rd person FPS, say coop, say xp, personalization and customization, say skills and perks, say tons of weapon choices, say Lovecraftian fun in there as well and I'm sold.
