What better day to completely surprise Predator fans with a brand new Predator game than the birthday of the legend himself, Kevin Peter Hall! Announced during Sony’s “State of Play” and coming from IllFonic, the developers of Friday the 13th: The Game, Predator: Hunting Grounds is Predator’s big solo return to the realm of video games since Concrete Jungle in 2005! Check out the cinematic reveal trailer below!
In an article published on the PlayStation Blog, IllFonic CEO Charles Brungardt went into more detail about what to expect of Predator’s return to video gaming:
One group of players will control members of an elite Fireteam: who pack state-of-the-art conventional firepower, from shotguns and SMGs to sniper rifles and more.
One player will control the Predator: a stealthy, acrobatic killing machine bristling with exotic alien technology such as the infamous Plasmacaster.
As the Fireteam attempt to carry out paramilitary missions – annihilating bad guys and recovering important items – the Predator will be closing in, using its advanced vision mode to track and ambush its prey.
While Brungardt didn’t go into too much detail, it sounds like Predator: Hunting Grounds will be an entirely multiplayer experience with some similarities to the way Friday the 13th plays with one player controlling the Predator and the other players as the prey.
Though not confirmed, it also appears that Hunting Grounds is going to be a PlayStation exclusive. It’s currently slated for release in 2020.
