For the first days of The Hunt you will be in training. Led by a survival expert, you will learn all the skills you need to stay alive and avoid capture: shelters, fires, cooking in the wild, navigation, water purification, stealth techniques, basic first aid, ambush and tracking skills. During this time you will also have the opportunity to win equipment that will aid you during The Hunt.
This is where the real game begins! During The Hunt, you will survive in the wild, complete your mission and score points for your team. Throughout the mission, Hive HQ will provide you with different objectives via iPad messaging. You will need to use all the skills you learned and equipment you obtained from boot camp, as these objectives could include anything from locating and securing a hidden object, to rescuing an injured ally, to spying on an enemy team. However, remember that you are not alone out there. Throughout the entire game The Hunter will be tracking you down and trying to catch you. Can you avoid detection, score points, and become ‘Champion of The Hunt’?
