The Hunted - A Dual-Stick Multiplayer Shooter by F5 Games



Hey TouchArcade!

This is Brandon from F5 Games and I'm really excited to share news about our new game, The Hunted! We've been working on this game since early in 2013 and are now in the final stretch and expect The Hunted to hit the app store in late October or early November. Before I say anymore, check out our announcement trailer. (Dubstep Warning)



The Hunted is a fast paced dual-stick multiplayer shooter with limited field of view. The core concept with this game was to make a multiplayer shooter that captures the fun and excitement of an, old-school, FPS with a control scheme that actually works well on a phone or tablet.

Around that gameplay core we've added multiple gameplay modes, 9 unique hunters each with their own abilities, weapons, and special attacks, and we've perfected the multiplayer code such that you can play on a Wifi or Cellular connection!



Be sure to check out our blog for more info and a couple more images ( http://f5games.com/news ).

We're going to release more info and videos over the next couple weeks so stay tuned and let me know what you think.

Looks absolutely awesome, I always thought about a limited FoV in a twin-stick shooter would work.
Can't wait, also, any pricing details?

Outlander: Thanks! We're really happy with how the FOV stuff turned out. As for pricing, we're doing the League of Legends thing. Free to download and rotating free characters. The only IAP will be to unlock characters if you want to play as one of them when they aren't free.

Wow, really liking the look of this. The FOV stuff really does make a lot of sense for a competitive shooter

Thanks everyone!

I'm not sure if we'll do a true beta test or not but if we do we'll definitely pull people from the TA forums.

Take a peek at the world of The Hunted

Hey everyone!

We've added a little background on the world of The Hunted over on our website. Check it out!

This first post sets the stage for why our characters are battling each other and how they came to find themselves in this situation. After this we're going to start a series of posts that focus in on each of the Hunters and show off their moves, attacks, and battle strategies.



I'm also happy to announce that we've finished up our sound effects, and contracted with a great musician who heard about the game here on TA and he is finishing up three original music tracks for the game!

If everything goes to plan, which it almost never does, we should be submitting The Hunted to Apple this weekend!

Remember to check out the blog post and let me know what you think here on the forums.

Meet the Hunter

We've just posted some new information about The Hunted over on our blog, check it out: Meet The Hunted - Human Hunter



This is the first in a series of posts that showcases the playable characters in the game and gives you a look at their abilities and play styles. Today we're highlighting the Hunter and give you a look at his double barrel shotgun and tracking dart.



Check out the blog for more info and action gifs then let me know what you think.

Also, I'm really happy to announce that we have submitted The Hunted to Apple for review! Based on the review times we're hoping to launch on either November 13th or 20th so it won't be long until you can jump online and beat us at our own game.
