There’s a new map called Hurlant Castle in Skinwalker Hunt, thanks to the latest update. The developer has also made significant changes to the Chernobyl Forest landscape, including an increase in performance in most setups.

Skinwalker Hunt is a single-player, horror-themed hunting game where you play as a native American monster hunter. Your mission is to hunt down a legendary creature called the “Skinwalker” using different tools and abilities available in the game.

As mentioned earlier, there’s a new map set in some sort of ruins. To unlock the Hurlant Castle, you have to kill the Skinwalker on the Chernobyl Forest map first.

Aside from that, there’s something that you need to keep in mind. Due to the significant changes applied to the Chernobyl Forest (which includes performance optimizations and landscape modifications), you might run into issues if you load an old save file. While there’s no need to delete the file, it’s recommended that you restart your Chernobyl Forest hunt to avoid potential bugs caused by the changes.
