The Hunt Video Showdown Starts Now

Hunters from all over the world have congregated in Louisiana to join in the fight against the corruption that has taken hold. Each Hunter has their own story, their own methods, and their own motivations. What are yours?

We want to hear your Hunters' stories, so this month we are asking you to share them. Create a video about one of your Hunter's origins and experiences, and submit it by posting it on social media with the hashtag #MyHuntStory. Where are they from? How did they hear about the Louisiana incident? What do they believe is happening in the bayou, and how do they intend to fight it? Are they in it for gold? For glory? For redemption? For revenge? What happened to them once they arrived on the scene?

To get you started, watch our new lore video, There Came a Darkness, which provides background about what is happening in Louisiana, and why. Then pick a character, and spin us a tale. Our lore video is embedded below, and the contest details are listed below that. We cannot wait to see what you come up with.
