    Totally 100% disagree on "terrible gameplay". I wouldn't keep coming back if that was the case, Predator or not.

    Ahhhh the old, "Nothing bad happened to me, so it must be ok" argument.
    So if bad things aren't generally happening to me in my gameplay experience of two years, I should still react negatively to it?

    QuoteCome on man, you can't tell me at least the Predator side of things is greatly lacking in gameplay quality such as the lack of new Predator gear and long range weaponry? Fireteam had plenty of new weapons and gear since last year but Predator gets another melee weapon again?

    So you're talking about a lack of new weaponry for Predator, because you've grown tired of their current array of weapons. How does any of this support terrible gameplay in its main sense, which is, the way we the players interact with a game, it's asymmetrical rules, controls, and the challenge?

    QuoteIs it so wrong to get my Speargun so that I don't keep getting my mask blown off the the overpowered sniper rifles that can remove a Predator's health in 3 shots? THAT is the damage dealt by ONE FIreteam, and you don't think the combined might of 4 with that weapon is greatly biased towards Fireteam on that part? Its the reason why the meme of "Fireteam Hunting Grounds" is a thing after all. How can I even have fun with the game knowing full well that I'm just going to constantly win on the FIreteam side of things but just get disappointed yet again by PC Snipers with overbearing power builds when I go Predator?

    I can't speak of PC, and I have crossplay turned off for various reasons, but I play PS4 Pro several times every week and still have fun and constantly take trophies as the Predator. When the Fireteam is extremely good, a satisfying win to me is just obtaining at least one of their heads as a trophy, and surviving. It burns them so up.  :laugh:

    And I never have problems finding full matches quickly, which means others are enjoying the general gameplay too.

    QuoteYes that is terrible gameplay indeed, and the release of Wolf really did get alot of ire from all the social media side of things of the community not being happy with the latest lack luster patch. Not only a terribly modeled Wolf but also not even the nice gear he had from the films or the new weapons as well? How can you not even understand why people were mad at such a let down? But hey if it WORKS FOR YOU, thats only on your end. Some of us actually want the game to be fun and great as it can be, but this current set up its not it chief, but I do wanna hear how the game is perfectly balanced on your point of view.

    If you see my previous comments, I agree the Wolf DLC was bad. But to me, that is clearly separate to the game's general core gameplay and their ability to have fun with it.

    Regarding the balance, and what the devs intended, we already discussed ad nauseum I think. We know where each other stands. No need to rehash it again I think.  :)

    Except for what you can manage and manipulate in a private match, no solo content.

    Honestly, it'd be funny if the rumored Ghostbusters game was another Predator title. And it's not like it wouldn't be unwarranted. Lots of studios will release a new entry to account for the mistakes on the first. Not everything can be patched. Frontier specifically did this with Jurassic World Evolution 2 to do aquatic and flying animals. We could see Illfonic do a sequel to account for problems in the original game.
  5. Voodoo Magic
    Totally 100% disagree on "terrible gameplay". I wouldn't keep coming back if that was the case, Predator or not.

    Nor do I think Hunting Grounds will be a massive disappointment to newcomers after Prey. When it became free on PS Plus, newbies were having a blast with it, with a game that was so much more in a complete state than its original 3 map bare boned debut.
  6. Mr.Turok
    All the DLC in the world will not make up for the terrible gameplay and bugs that still exist in the game. Illfonic gotta put those DLCs on hold so that the game won't be a massive disappointment to newcomers after the release of Prey. I just don't know what they are doing in there anymore, it's not making things for the game that much better.
  7. Voodoo Magic
    Ah, I was saying the same thing during the City Hunter release. Remember the roar wouldn't last as long as the animation? Or the syringe sound in the roar? I kept asking, how does this pass through freak'n quality control? How?! Followed by a burp (because I game and drink).

    While I still absolutely love this game and still have a blast playing it, it always felt to me that the A-team left Hunting Grounds after the Alpha Predator, and now I'm thinking the B-Team left after Exiled. We got the C-team now and all the good talent at Illfonic is hard at work on Ghostbusters.
  8. SuperiorIronman
    I sincerely don't know how Wolf made it through approvals on either side of the fence. It's bad technically and from Fox's point of view it's superficially Wolf. What the hell happened?

    At the very least you would think they'd have done his spear or his pistol. I know he's based on where he is at the start of the movie but the man is known as "heavy weapons" and they really had nothing to choose from?
  9. Kailem
    At this point I wouldn't be entirely shocked if we didn't get all or any of the other stuff that's been datamined. They can't keep putting out DLC for potentially the rest of the year if they're just going to be phoning it in as much as they did with this.
  10. RidgeTop
    Yeah their forums be raging over this. Typically when DLC has been locked after purchase they've fixed it promptly. This took 11 days to make him functional for all users and playable for some users. One of their moderators said that the patch was taking longer because...

    "In the interest of making additional fixes based off of player feedback, we're delaying the patch a little more. Thank you for your patience!"

    People had a lot of complaints regarding Wolf including mask shader darkness issues, lack of netting, no unique roar, no unique weapons (with a reskinned plasma pistol seeming like the acceptable bare minimum as a model was already created for his shoulder canon), bugged armor shaders (they're still bugged after this hotfix), shoulder canon being too small, and lack of a white eye.

    I too was expecting AT LEAST the mask to be adjusted based on the feedback and with them taking this long... I've defended Illfonic but this is just bad. Seems like the worst received update yet for the game and makes me wonder if they really have just moved on. Who knows how much of that recent datamine we'll end up seeing. I hope they come back big for the game's anniversary, but they really missed the mark on this one.
  11. Kailem
    Literally the only other thing I was actually expecting from this hotfix was for them to have made his mask a little less dark, and even with that super low bar they still managed not to cross it.

    Yay for more warpaints I guess, but considering how many visual bugs and inaccuracies there are on him, it's a bit of a disappointment to say the least.
  12. Mr.Turok
    No real gameplay balance changes? Not even more Predator gear or long range weaponry? Hell, Wolf got them laser traps but we can't use them? Its been delayed from the usual schedule and it still comes out terribly?

    This game is done, they are barely doing anything with it anymore. Many people, including myself, are disappointed with this lack luster updates with very little meaningful content and positive changes. Such a shame, and it was a promising game too.

    Scar's I couldn't really notice on the helmets. Looked more like war paint to me but I may not have had the right masks to showcase it.

    The captive Predator being a Jungle Hunter clone does not sit right with me especially since the film version had details on it like a wider build, a different shaped but still JH style head and even some changes to the armor like light up gauntlets and a missing shoulder pad. The more interesting route to me would've been a combination of his strung up appearance and his armored. Like he's missing the gauntlets but he's still got the gun strapped to his back. There's just cooler ways of doing it to me than a slightly retextured 87.

    The Supers..., they look awful without the mask. I'm sorry they just do. They look like hellish muppets and none of the dreads including the ones they come with line up with the heads. So no matter what you have, the dreadlocks are floating on nothing. We knew it was a problem with the heads but I didn't think it was this bad. There's also some textures that don't really look right. Like they're too colorful if that makes sense. Berserker definitely has a lighter tone. Still the bodies are gorgeous so might as well stick a bag on it. None of the supers have the right roar either. If I had to explain the head without a photo, they basically look like Fugitive after getting his face punched in with a constant shit pants look.

    Tracker is also weirdly left out here. I asked about this and as of yet still have gotten no answer per the three times I've asked devs. I don't think I'm getting an answer but it's weird when you consider that of the trio we didn't even get the guy they strung up given how off model he is. I suppose he could be his own release but his absence is noticeable. If anything they probably should've replaced Falconer with the Tracker given he actually did carry a gun and they have the tech for the dogs now.
  15. Kailem
    Is it Scar's mask, or is it some sort of "battle scars" feature for all the masks? It kinda sounds like it might be the latter.

    Either way, now that we've actually got Mr Black and Falconer after getting their masks, and we've seen that Scars has been datamined, it surely is only a matter of time before he shows up too.

    And yeah definitely glad about the night maps vision mode fix. Hopefully it'll be a lot easier to see things in thermal vision now than I has been.
  16. RidgeTop
    Oh snap just the ones I wanted too! And really glad they fixed the heat vision at night.

    They went around the Jungle Hunter exclusivity by having it be crucified, just pop on the Jungle Hunter mask and there ya go.

    And Scar's mask! SCAR WILL COME I TELL YOU.

    Fantastic update.

    It definitely feels less stable than it did.

    I played a game yesterday where the reinforcements just never spawned in. Never had the countdown timer, never got the blue icon, nothing. Everyone died permanently on their first life. Also had a few instances of the knife not equipping in the weapon wheel, there's no voiceovers whatsoever on the new HQ map (for the mission briefly and during the mission) and sometimes not even in previous maps where I know I've had them before. And some of the ending cutscenes now show multiple evac choppers.

    So yeah, they definitely broke a few things methinks.

    I'm not expecting a response from them but I am sending a message to OldKingHamlet on the forums now. I'm curious if that was meant to be here or if it's something different. If it is something like a ship I'm not expecting them to say anything but at the very least I did bring up the exfil swarm not swarming nor being prompt. I'll update here if I get a response.


    I noticed the new HQ sound too. Sounds great and ominous. From the looks of it, the HQ has hydro pumps and maybe all that water is generrating energy. But the new noise only happened in the latest update patch. Still its pretty cool if you have a subwooofer.

    It sounds like some sort of crazy generator powering up, or a cloaked ship perhaps? Either way it's odd. Could just be something that was always meant to be there though and we weren't hearing, like the voiceovers for any of the missions on HQ, and now seemingly some on Excavation too.

    Speaking of weird things and Excavation, I did a match on their yesterday where no enemies came when we extracted at the water area. Then when we took down the Pred, no enemies showed up to attack the body either.

    Don't know if it's just at that one evac point, but that's something they'll need to fix at some point.
  24. SuperiorIronman
    Thanks to Ridgetop for pointing it out (at least I assume it was his twitter) but what in the hell is that noise on HQ?

    I wanna think it's a ship. Whatever it is the sound seems like it's coming from the facility itself. Anyone know of any other maps that has anything weird going on? It occurred to me that since HQ released early they may have let something slip that we weren't supposed to know about until later. In this case it might've been to tie in with a Predator release or something alongside lone wolf.

    But I wanna know. Like if this guy is great then I have no problems with this.

    I do like what I see with the changes to Predator and that while we don't have a level cap push for the operative, I do like there is something new to unlock and play around with. These changes to Predator will probably benefit Viking immensely though given the much larger health pool.
    Given complaints about Predator health and the addition of a rocket launcher, this is a good call.


    The armor addition is varying based on the location the Predator is hit. In the developer stream last night, they mentioned that it depends on the additional armor protection but testing shows that it is close to no improvement on damage reduction. Impenetrable has been buffed a bit but it still doesn't really help reducing the damage taken by a premade team that stacks Deadly/Sniper.
