Farlight 84 will feature a 48-player game mode called HUNT and will hold a closed beta test next month

Lilith Games has unveiled new details for their upcoming third-person shooter Farlight 84. The headline announcement is the game's flagship mode, HUNT. Farlight 84 is set to release for iOS, Android and PC early next year and will support cross-platform play between all the game's versions.

HUNT promises to be a fast-paced and frantic PvP mode that supports up to 48 players. Each team will have players who will be a marked target that opposing players will hunt and kill to earn points. After teams have accrued enough points, they can evacuate the map or stick around and try to be the last squad standing.
