The developers of Hunt: Showdown seem to be cooking up some kind of horrible, pilotable bug.

Two teasers on the Hunt: Showdown Twitter account in the last two days have convinced me that the next feature and creature added to the game will be a flying surveillance bug that players can use to spy on opponents. And I think it could be coming as soon as next month.

The image above, shared yesterday, actually focused on the return of the Billy Story promo mask, a cute homage to Daniel Day Lewis’ character from Gangs of New York. But careful observers (meaning those with at least one eye) can get more out of the fluttering silhouette released from the hand of Billy, a flying beetle we’ve never seen before. Surely this scary beetle is not just for decoration; It would be unprecedented for Crytek to show a detail like this and not back it up with something concrete.
