    A couple things to note

    - Bone mask
    Despite the preview it seems to operate how was expected. The mandibles of Falconer, Mr.Black, and Wolf will curl into the face. This leads to an amusing sight where it looks like the image of that trex "furrafic farc" where the jaw is gone or put up into the skull like on a puppet.

    - dreadlocks
    They're here this time! Though despite the preview image the Emisssry dreads are STILL not featured in Hunting Grounds.

    - Bionic
    The model is gorgeous. He actually has a unique head unlike the other OC Predator. Where the Hell was this on the past releases Illfonic? The mask kind of reminds me from that one mask from (I think) AVP:seed.

    Mottle like Emissary doesn't work. However near as I can tell no texture is bugging out. Seriously, someone really gave a shit about this model and I respect that.

    His stats are near max across the board

    He has a new roar! It's the female one but I dig it.

    One touch I kind of like is that the wrist blade is a telescoping knife. Like it folds out of itself and then back into the arm. Good shit.

    I wish there was more here but someone should be proud of the work they put into the cyborg.
  2. SuperiorIronman
    I actually hope the terminator eye is relevant. If we have a "cybernetic" mask we wouldn't have to wear one.

    So technically there's two masks. A cybernetic mask and a Bionic Predator mask. It'd also explain why he's the only one who has an exposed face. The image could be suggesting we can go "unmasked" now. The laser might be coming from the eye like Lasershot.


    Bionic Predator is currently live on PSN.

    Note as of posting he's available for purchase but no patch has dropped.

    EDIT - never mind

    But damn, this Pred actually looks really cool! :o Obviously this is the "Cyborg" that was datamined a while back. Surprised we're not getting Celtic, but I've always loved me some Kenner, so anything that even remotely resembles them is good in my book! ;D

    I'm still riding high on Prey hype, so I'm totally going to make another financial mistake when this guy comes out!
  4. SuperiorIronman
    God damnit that looks really dope. Not sure how it'll play but that design f**kin rules.

    Hold on, this is the only OC with a new head, what just happened? None of the others are like this. Alpha being an exception due to its association with the toy but as another pointed out even the teeth are new. The Hell's going on here?

    Sorry but have to disagree. They could have even just advertised their game due to the increase in intrest with the franchise around Preys release but didn't. They took our money to make Arcadegeddon, a failure of a game.

    Small studios make small games is no excuse. How come they were able to get Arnold back if its a small game? At the time there was 5 films, numerous comics and book characters They could use and they gave us a nfl player? The 1 year anniversary was delayed a day so the one year exclusive deal was up with epic and what they release a £20 dlc bundle where only new thing was early access to a mask. Even fortnite won't let you buy cosmetics more than once. It's a scummy company and needs to be called out on.

    Quote from: davewesker on Aug 21, 2022, 11:17:02 PMRespectfully disagre. PHG will be their biggest game. If I was on charge of their social media in the lead up to Preys release I'd be advertising the game with captions such as Track down your PREY in the Jungle in PHG etc. Day of release the posted about arcadegeddon.

    To this day we still talk shit about the new born, AvP2,  Aliens Colonial Marines. Why does Illfonic and their complete mishandling of this game get a pass?


    Quote from: PAS Spinelli on Aug 21, 2022, 10:55:21 PMDoesn't that website only count people that log into it? Because there is no way there's only 104 players on that platform. You will find different people from PSN over the course of multiple matches, rarely finding the same people
    That's how many were playing at that time.

    Got to remember on PC it was on Epic for a year before released on steam. So assume a large amount of the playerbase is on epic on pc

    As I said before, they probably COULD'T LEGALLY use the new film to Advert a game released 3 years ago. Yes they HAD the rights to the previous predator films, were probably given a Lore Bible on the PREVIOUSLY released films and told THATS where they can build assets from. I'm not saying to give Illfonic a "pass" but I really do feel that fans of the game should seriously re-evaluate their expectations of this game and what Illfonic is able to accomplish with such a small staff. It was never supposed to be a HUGE game, its barely above a quickplay arcade game.

    Small Studios make Small Games.

    and personally I find it unhealthy to focus on the lowest points of any franchises for many many years. Let it go, your negativity isn't going to magically make Pitchford, the Strauses, or even Jeunet care or change anything about the media they released.
  7. davewesker
    Tbh forgot about Friday. OK second biggest game lol

    Edit.

    Did I like the game. Yes loved it. The friends I made are awesome. Am I bitter and angry now about it? Hell yes. The one year anniversary showed illfonics true colours as a greedy company who's focus was squeezing as much money from the fans of a franchise that hadn't had many gaming outings and that's what's made me angry when in the lead up to release they were talking about how they are fans

    it would appear there are more Steam players than PS4 players. Regardless, 354 players does not mean that its financially feasible to allocate more resources to the game, especially when the other titles they own are doing rather well by comparison. Not to mention that they're working on another asymmetrical multiplayer IP game, I fail to see the point you are trying to make about hanging on the player count, if it was substantial enough changes would have been made a long time ago.

    EDIT: Make no mistake, I DO wish this game was better, and i agree Hunting Grounds is in a rather disappointing state right now, but its not fair to willfully ignore a companies desire to pay their employees by focusing on other games.
  11. PAS Spinelli
    Now you are just bullshitting lol, Steam players are rare, there are 250ish of them playing the game rn. There is no way in hell they make up 50% of this game's active playerbase.


    Here is my source btw
    https://steamdb.info/app/1556200/graphs/
    The game has consistently been having 250 active players at once for the last few days, keep in mind these are the players you see the least in game, I've seen one exactly once after player 15 matches the other day.
  12. Leggs.obj
    That simply isn't true though, if 2000 people were actively playing a 15minute round the game would be near the top of the most played games on Playstation. It simply isn't the case, the game only sold about 65k copies, and after 3 years every where that even rudimentarily shows a player count consistently shows less than 500 at one time.

    Game development pipelines again are not 1:1 with what the audience perceives or whatever dataminers find in the game files, barring the fact that Illfonic is not a large scale game dev, with >120 employees its absolutely understandable that content gets cut. I understand that its frustrating to play a game that isnt perfectly optimized or balanced, but there just isnt the devpower to just "fix" the game. As far as them releasing the Captured predator, the biggest consistent complaint ive ever seen in the game is that the JH was a preorder release, so of course theyre going to find a work around and still honor the preorder.

    Look I love this game, for what it is, a small arcade style PvP game. But its so dreadful to keep seeing nothing but negative comments about this game from fans who refuse to see the forest for the trees.
  13. PAS Spinelli
     There's not "literally less" than 500 players in this game, if you want to look at Steam charts, then your argument is purposely flawed to create a false narrative. Steam makes up less than 1/5 of the players I found in the last 5 days I've been playing the game, the majority of the playerbase are from EGS and Playstation, and they far outnumber the Steam players for this game, SPECIALLY the Playstation side of the community.
     If we are to take the fact that Steam players make up around 1/10 of the active playerbase seeing how rare they are to find, that would mean that the game has at least 2k+ players at the moment.

     Also, Illfonic has ALWAYS been neglectful when it comes to this game. Lack of proper weapon variety, lack of new gamemodes, lack of bug fixing and communication, this isn't a new feeling, it's been there since the first few months of release, also they have continuously failed to follow their promises, Captured is just JH, to the point he uses the exact same assets, which goes against their "no preorder content avaliable to other people" bs, and they also failed to deliver all the promised War Paints in time.

    Quote from: BlueMarsalis79 on Aug 18, 2022, 10:44:19 AMBecause it's clearly on life support at this point.
    Games beyond life support.illfonic doesn't care and have moved on. Hell on Preys release date they posted on their socials about arcadegeddon. With all the hype around Preythey could have used that to promote their game but they focused on their free lootbox cash grab.
    Took a week for them to go a mask is coming.

    You realize that Illfonic doesn't get any sort of inside information about Prey because they made a predator game, right? Like they probably had to MAKE that helmet AFTER release and get it ready to show off during that week.   

    That's rubbish. The ferel pred was revealed way before it came out. People release artwork for months.

    The point is on the lead up to the films release they didn't post anything about Predator or Prey so clearly don't care about the franchise.

    And if they didn't make the mask until AFTER the film was released like you say how bad are they that they only take a week to make new content but only release a mask and shaders every 2 months?

    Game Industry =/= Film Industry you can't look at one and try to find correlation in another. They can't just decide to put the new films Predator into their game, there needs to be all kinds of legalese/permissions behind something like this. Hunting Grounds was released in 2019, its been 3 years which is a lifetime in PvP multiplayer games, Illfonic is a gaming studio, not a predator studio, they HAVE to make new games to stay in business.

    Can we FULL STOP talking shit about Illfonic and acting like they NEED to "fix" the game, when theres literally less than 500 people ever playing it at once?

    Yeah but that was so long ago that most people figure it was something they tried and then abandoned. The new Predators were only datamined at the beginning of the year (or late last year, I forget which) along with Wolf and Emissary, both of which indeed came out. So there's a chance we might still see those others as the final major updates/DLC releases for the game.
  18. Kailem
    I'm still hoping we get the two or three other Predators that were datamined earlier this year, but that's the absolute "best case scenario" limit of my expectations.

    To be honest I'm pleasantly surprised we're even getting Feral's mask as I figured there wouldn't any tie-ins to Prey whatsoever.
  19. SisterJill
    So I've finally renewed my PS Plus subscription, am downloading the game back. VickiSandwich on PSN if anyone wants to add to play sometime.


    oops just saw the proper thread for IDs. Ignore this post.

    Quote from: Orpheus2020 on Aug 05, 2022, 09:44:42 PMI watched the movie and now I kinda want them to add the Skull/Feral Predator to the game :o
    I've been reading that illfonic have all but pretty much abandoned the game at this point. Don't know how true that is, but people are talking about it.
    Yes it would be nice to see more predators added, and it would only help in marketing, but who knows, maybe they'll surprise us. Even more, hopefully we'll finally get a single player mode (which I doubt)
    Whoever they may add, it wouldn't matter for me because I'm absolute trash at the game. I can never figure out how when I'm the predator, I get smoked in two seconds flat, but when I'm on fire team, I absolutely swamp the predator in bullets, but yet he never drops.....it's a mystery to me....but then again my dumbass keeps playing it. Whoever knew that a budget $40 title could get more play than any flagship title out there (with the exception of gtav hahaha)
