With the release of Patch 1.5 we're adding the first round of requested matchmaking improvements to Hunt: Showdown. We want new players to have time to familiarize themselves with the game, and we don't want new Hunt players to get thrown into a match with the kind of experienced players who are going to take them out in the first five minutes. So this round of matchmaking improvements will sort players by experience level, so that new players can play against others with similar experience levels before being put into a match with highly ranked players.
What else the patch includes:
-Loading time improvements
-A simplified loadout process, which should make it quicker and easier to equip your Hunter pre-match
-Audio volume tweaks
-Improvements to the audio on bullet fly-bys based on ammunition type
-New mouse sensitivity options for aiming
-And of course the usual balancing tweaks and bug fixes.
