Hello Hunters!

Today marks the release of our new Weapon Pack 2! This new paid DLC will roll on all platforms throughout the day.

A brand new weapon pack has just been delivered to our wardens, and they're excited to present an incredible combination of new world finesse and old-school reliability with the Grelck Drilling Rifle, the Solokhin MN1890, and the Mangiafico 410 / 45 Colt Revolver.

This update also contains a list of (free) in-game fixes such as improved first person animations, performance improvements on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and various crash fixes.

NOTE XBOX:
The Weapon Pack 2 DLC will be available in the store to purchase before the patch that brings the game content is available to download. This means that you can buy the DLC but can't play it yet (as the patch will be out later today). So the DLC will be out first and the patch will come out later!

You can read more about the new Weapon Pack on our Steam store page, or find the full Weapon Pack 2 content summary and the patch notes down below:
