After a nearly exact 15 year wait, Predator is returning to main stream gaming platforms with Illfonic’s Predator: Hunting Grounds! First announced back in May 2019, Predator: Hunting Grounds puts players in the boots of either the Predator or Fireteam members in an asymmetrical multiplayer experience that is framed around the very story formula of the original Predator!
“Predator: Hunting Grounds is an immersive asymmetrical shooter set in remote areas, where the Predator stalks the most challenging prey. Play as a member of an elite Fireteam and complete paramilitary operations before the Predator finds you. Or, play as the Predator to hunt the most worthy prey, choosing from your vast array of deadly alien tech to collect your trophies, one by one.”
Predator: Hunting Grounds is available to purchase on the Epic Store (for PC) or on the PlayStation Store! Alien vs. Predator Galaxy and Illfonic have also teamed up to give members of the Alien vs. Predator Galaxy community a chance to win one of two codes for Hunting Grounds on the PS4!
Though we don’t yet know what’s in store for us, we’ll be seeing Predator: Hunting Grounds first content update towards the end of May. Previously speaking about post-release support, Illfonic’s Charles Brungardt wrote in the PlayStation Blog:
“Speaking of planned updates, we view the launch of Predator: Hunting Grounds as just the beginning. What that means to us, at IllFonic, is that we can continue to drop new content post launch. We do have a roadmap in place for this already. In fact, you will see the first content update — which will be a free one — go live a little over a month from now. And there will be more content updates after that. These will include many great surprises. This is part of why our community forums are so special to us. We are listening and taking your feedback to heart, whether it be found bugs or comments on the game.”
If you don’t already (why not?!) head on over to the Alien vs. Predator Galaxy YouTube Channel where you’ll be able to check out our livestreams of Predator: Hunting Ground! We’ll also be reviewing the game on our podcast in early May so keep an eye out for that one! We also have a PlayStation Community where you can hook up with fellow AvP Galaxy community members to get your Predator: Hunting Grounds fix!
