The Hunter: Call of the Wild Steam

theHunter: Call of the Wild Update 1.67 is finally here. This update celebrates the game’s fifth anniversary and to celebrate the milestone, the developers are giving away a free weapon. That's not it, as the developers have replaced some existing loading screens with amazing key art to make the waiting screen look aesthetically pleasing.


The developers are giving away a free special anniversary edition of the Rhino 454: the SUNDBERG 454 to celebrate its fifth anniversary. To claim it, players just have to go to the in-game store.

Performance Improvements

Since the game is an open world, it consumes a lot of resources to run. This takes a toll on older systems, leading to poor performance. To improve performance, the developers have completely reworked the animal home ranges, population, and zone times on areas such as Mississippi Acres Preserve, Vurhonga Savanna, Rancho Del Arroyo, and Cuatro Colinas.

DLC Content

This update also adds a new DLC Pack called the Modern Rifle Pack that comes with three new weapons: ZARZA-15 .22LR, ZARZA-15 .223, and ZARZA-10 .308. Each weapon will also have two skin variations for interested players.
