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.
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.

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.
