Vote in the Hunt: Showdown Video Awards!

We need your votes to decide the Hunt: Showdown Video Awards winners!

Last month we invited all of you CryEngineers with cinematic chops to enter the inaugural Hunt: Showdown Video Awards. Prizes up for grabs include an Alienware gaming laptop, a high-end GPU and CPU bundle from AMD, a 32-inch 175hz gaming monitor from MSI, and the grand prize of a one-of-a-kind Hunt-themed NZXT gaming PC! 

Entrants were invited to submit videos that tell stories inspired by the Bayou in four minutes or under in different award categories, including "Action," "Trailer," and "Freestyle." You can check out the entries by searching for #HuntShowdownAwards on Facebook and Twitter – and there was an incredible response.
