Predator Event Coming to Ghost Recon: Wildlands

It seems the Predator is becoming quite the guest star in the video game space these days. After having appeared in Call of Duty: Ghosts and Mortal Kombat X, tomorrow he’ll be taking on the players of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands in a special limited time event, though perhaps if it’s popular we could see it as a permanent addition.

The single player and co-op open world tactical shooter set in Bolivia will be adding this content free for owners of the game. Ubisoft collaborated with 20th Century Fox internal development studio FoxNext to bring the Predator into the world of Ghost Recon.

 Predator Event Coming to Ghost Recon: Wildlands

Here are the details for what players can expect in the limited time event:

Free Predator Special Challenge

  • Starting December 14 until early January, all players of Ghost Recon Wildlands will be able to face the Predator in the game’s ultimate hunt. This new Special Challenge is playable solo or up to four-player co-op and is the most difficult fight of all Ghost Recon Wildlands.

Predator Customization Items

  • Upon defeating the Predator, players will be rewarded with exclusive items, such as the Predator mask, which offers the much renowned Predator vision. In addition to rewards for completing the challenge, players can further customize and arm their Ghosts with the Predator Pack, which includes 15 new customization items, weapons and an exclusive close combat move, to recreate some of the most memorable characters from the original movie.

Predator Inspired Ghost War PvP Class

  • With its ability to engage in Battle Rage mode, the new Ghost War class, inspired by main character Dutch from the original Predator movie, will offer offensive players a new alternative to create strategies and tactics on the PVP battleground. Ghost War players will be able to access the new class through the Ghost War Pass or the Season Pass, or by using their Prestige points directly.

Some screenshots that were recently released through the Predator Fan App:

Also, the developers just had a live stream previewing the new mode:

Ubisoft was kind enough to send us a preview of this new mode, so expect our impressions on it shortly. For further details regarding the inception of this passion project, check out this interview with Nouredine Abboud, senior producer at Ubisoft Paris.

While we’re getting pretty hungry for a main franchise game release, it is quite cool to see the Predator making these appearances. Ghost Recon: Wildlands is available on Steam for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

    RidgeTop, Xenomorphine, myself and one of my buddies had a wack at this yesterday. It was difficult! When 2 of us went down, it was just difficult to recover. Guess we need to actually level up before trying the bonus mission!

    I dug it, though. The Predator is rock solid but it does feel a little like artificial difficulty and like the Predator is "cheating" when it suddenly disappears, not cloaks, just disappears, to move around the map.

    Can't you get the Predator mask as well?
    Yes, there's two different masks. When you kill the Predator, you get a ballistic face mask that is styled like the Predator mask, and there's straps holding it on your head. There's also a much more detailed one with dreadlocks and stuff that you can get by buying a Predator-themed cosmetic DLC pack for a few bucks. It pretty much makes it look like a Predator head has been transplanted onto your body, haha.
    The paid DLC pack also lets you equip Predator wrist gauntlets (and gives you a special melee kill animation with them), muddy skin paints so you can make yourself look like your covered in mud, some camo face paints modeled after those that specific characters used, Blain's hat, and a black t-shirt with the Predator logo on it.

    The paid DLC is neat and I'm kinda tempted to buy it just to support and reward the devs for doing the cool free Predator DLC, but I'm not sure yet.

    I wasn't going to buy this game at all but now I'm thinking about it..f**k...
    Wildlands is a legit fun game if you like open-world tactical shooters.

    I beat the Predator DLC last night with a friend, it is NOT easy with just two people. The two of us failed at it at least 10 times before we finally took the Predator out. I made a couple entertaining gameplay clips that are saved on my Xbox profile, but I'm not sure how to link them here yet.

    You get some entertaining character customization options for beating the Predator, one of which is legit f**king scary:

    Holy shit. That is so awesome.

    Now I have to drop money on Ghost Recon just for this. Merry Christmas to myself, I guess! :)

    I want the models out of this too. Seeing the

    "It really does boggle the mind when you think how long it took them to put this together."

    Indeed. This should have been made the moment we entered the 3d era of gaming. It truly is a wonderful age we find ourselves in. Between this and Isolation, my childhood dreams are now playable!  :)

    I tried the DLC out last night, I haven't beaten it yet (the Predator kicked my ass). I don't want to go into too much detail because it's worth experiencing without spoilers, but I'll say that if you like the original Predator movie, the DLC does a good job of making you feel like you're living it.

    Predator : Isolation would be perfect. Just like movie "Predators" you trying to survive in a alien jungle with enemies ranging from other alien species, crazed humans and of course the Predators. Or maybe switch it around and play as a Predator in campaign.
  8. Corporal Hicks
    There's some existing ones from the comics and novels, some just mentioned in passing or some with some more details. Fire and Stone's opening sequences with Ahab being the more obvious ones but you have things like The Rage Wars or South China Sea mentioning other ones.

    But the point is that any game would be an expanded universe. They'd be able to go crazy and make new X-T enemies.
  9. Olde
    What other enemies would there be other than aliens and marines, though? I'm sure the novels and/or comics must tell of a bunch of other species and races that could be fair game but I haven't read any.

    "Predator really needs a massive open world (or galaxy) game! It's just begging for it. Think of all the prey!"

    I'd be in heaven. Random drops of prey like in "predators". And a trophy room, God the trophy room would be exquisite. Setting up hunting camps in the forest. Maybe even getting to hunt other predators sometimes, perhaps an alpha or ones who just chose to dishonor the hunt and must be punished. Endless possibilities.

    Maybe a "Valley of Death" mode or DLC. Something like this set one earth that mimics the original film. It's early dawn, you're stalking through the jungle and suddenly hear the sounds of aircraft overhead. You climb to the treetops and gaze out over the valley. A half-mile in the distance, there are Blackhawk choppers dropping in special forces troops. As the first sign of the sun begins to appear at the edge of the sky, you engage your camouflage, and begin the hunt.
