Looks great. Now I need offline bots. Also I am happy that models of weapons look right (including the old painless).

A longer trailer is out  and it is coming to PC too.


Predator: Hunting Grounds Launches April 24, 2020 on PlayStation 4 and on PC through Epic Game Store.

HUNT OR BE HUNTED
Play an asymmetrical multiplayer* shooter that pits man against Predator. As part of a 4 person Fireteam, complete missions before the Predator finds you. Or be the Predator and hunt your prey.

Enter the World of Predator:
Enter a world that looks and feels completely authentic to the lore of the Predator universe. The lush jungle comes alive with the sights and sounds of military bravado moving toward their objective. While up in the trees, a flash of light and an ominous clicking sound belay that the team is about to face deadly opposition. From the epic Predator theme song to the signature light-bending cloaking and thermal Predator vision, fans of the Predator-verse will revel in both familiar and new canon.

Human vs. Alien Weaponry:
As a Fireteam member, wield a state-of-the-art arsenal, from pistols to assault rifles, shotguns, grenades and heavy weapons.** As the Predator, hunt with deadly alien tech including the shoulder-mounted Plasma Caster, Combistick, Smart Disc, Wrist Blades, and more.**

Jungle Warfare:
Drop into several conflict zones in South America, treacherous, thick with ranging trees and sprawling undergrowth. Guerilla soldiers are well-camouflaged between guarding shanty hide-outs at the water's edge. Whether a Fireteam moves as a unit or takes a strategic split approach to reach each objective, the rich setting offers a diverse environment to perfect your approach. For the Predator, the trees are perfect for using otherworldy skills, crawling up tree trunks and stealthing through branches to stalk prey with frightening speed.

I'm really hoping NECA looks at these and makes some of them into figures at some point, if possible.

Epic Store on PC? Okay I will look into that.  Original Predator as a Preorder exclusive?
First redflag. What next? A different overpriced dlc pack for each other fan favorites?

Apart from that. Gameplay and graphics are sure looking better, the females look alright.

My only gripe is that predators bodies aren't entirely muscular or vascular. I would have liked to have seen more definition rather than it looking the way they did in the movies (like rubber suits).
Some look bulky, the female looks a little off in terms of realism.

Well that is certainly a gripe. :)

Perhaps they're not even biologically vascular.

Great... ::) looks like the predator wank material some fan on deviant art made is now gonna be in the game....there is zero evidence that the predator species would display sexual dimophisim through the same way mammalian humanoids do. Especially with a hyper sexualized form that's almost entirely a culturally western idea of femininity. This is pandering at best with no knowledge of biology and sexual dimophisim. Just because something is alien and has a human form, doesn't mean the female counter part has human female features.

Liked it better when there was still mystery to the predator. Now everything has to be known including what's between their legs...it serves no purpose, none. It's just a group of fans who have a sick obsession with the hyper sexualized female form, and think its accurate, even for something that's not real to begin with. But hey why not keep dragging these movies through the mud with more nonsense like this.... The last two movies were complete jokes. One was a long winded homage to the original and the other a total shitting of the bed in more ways than i care to list. The character died in its pure form after the second movie. What we got now is a fan made idea of the original idea. RIP Predator 1990

Hyper sexualized. A bit of an exaggeration isn't that? And the female appears here to be as sexualized as the males.

While I'm still hoping for movie skins, and maybe some from Concrete Jungle, I'll admit those new Predator designs are actually pretty cool.


I wonder how quickly NECA will get in on this XD

Of course anyone who hasn't actually taken a biology course would result to caveats like, "there's no evidence to not support it" and "Its make believe it can be anything we want"

No that's just your inability to imagine a better way, if nessecary to convey the sexual dimophisim of the species. It's a crap idea to just slap tits on it give it hips and call it a day.

Another mask from one of the blog screenshots:

(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49198397953_80497bf473_o.png)

That was a great trailer! Way better than the first gameplay reveal, and much more polished. And like Voodoo said, it ticked a lot of boxes! Multiple new weapons including some P2 classics, and the confirmation that we can choose between them, as well as different classes and mask/armour options confirmed! Plus you could tell that was a different map in a few of those shots, not just because of that huge satellite dish but also what looked like some sort of stone building in a few of them that we've never seen before.

I can take or leave the female Predator. I've never been a fan of the idea either since 90% of the time it's just fan wankery that amounts to little more than "Predit0r with BEWBZ!!1!", but at least they didn't go overboard with it here. And that bow is giving me AVP vibes with its ability to pin enemies to walls. I always loved that about those games. It's not a spear gun, but it'll do. ;)

Also it looked like we might well be seeing longer executions as the Predator after all! Some of those spine rips clearly had the Predator's hud on the screen, so they weren't being viewed from the soldier player's perspective like Hicks reported when he played it. So I'm definitely pleased about that too. And yay for controllable smart disc! I wonder what happens if you take damage while using it though, since presumably if you go into first-person to control it you're left standing there and vulnerable. Either way, great to see its inclusion!

The game is also up to pre-order on the Playstation store now too, in regular (£35) and digital deluxe (£50) versions. The digital deluxe extras are listed as:

• PlayStation®-themed Fireteam Camo and Weapons Skin, Predator and Armour Skin.
• PlayStation®-themed Predator Mask War Paint, 48-hour double XP boost and five Field Lockers.
• Early Access to the Battle Hardened Assault Character and Predator Eclipse Mask.
• Predator: Hunters digital comic, dynamic PS4™ theme and digital mini art book.

I'm guessing "Field Lockers" will probably be earnable loot crates with random cosmetics? Either way that's kinda steep, so I'll likely just go for the regular version.

Oh yeah, the one bad thing about this though; the release date. It's good to finally have one, but releasing a week after Cyberpunk 2077, arguably the most anticipated game of next year? Even a week later would have been better. That's really not going to do its sales numbers any favours.

So that's where you draw the line?  You realize the whole first Predator film can be picked appart when it comes to logic; scientific, military and more, right? 

I'd rather have one complain consistently about everything... say like why the Predator can't pick up heat signature of Dutch's core temperature through his unmuddy eyeballs but can pick up heat from hidden rodents or dead scorpions... instead of bringing in inapplicable science to a fictional creature only when it suits one's taste.

Trailer was awesome.

And of course I always have to worry about those dreadful words when a game is announced for PC... 'Epic Games Store Exclusive.'

Shit.

Looks like it's the PS4 version for me.

Also wondering about that 'not actual gameplay' text in the trailer. I assume it just means that little intro bit and not the whole thing?

The bow doesn't really feel like it belongs in a Predator arsenal. It's literally an exact copy of a human weapon with some vaguely different aesthetics, which makes it seem like someone couldn't come up with anything inventive and just lazily looked at a book of medieval things they never got around to adapting and went, "Eh, this thing in."

Even us humans improved on it in antiquity with the crossbow and even more automated later ideas. Even 'Van Helsing', back in the early 2000s, did a better job of reflecting improvements over bows than this.

The old 'Cold War' comic did it better: Utilise the spear, itself, as a gun which doubles up to shoot bamboo-length projectiles, indicating a potential for taking down much larger targets.

Agreed. Predators resemble human anatomy and this is perfect!

No, it's not. Predators with breasts make zero sense. They just don't have the mouths necessary for it. Those jaws are designed for chewing and lacerating soft tissue. Even if they didn't have the fangs, they don't have the lips required to create a 'curtain' of suction. It's unnecessarily shallow fan-boy service. There's no other reason for it to be in there.

Hey, how do you know baby Predators can't suck!  :P  You don't know what's going on deep in the recesses of a baby Predators mouth, if the mandibles grow with maturity like tusks on an Elephant.

I do not think so unless it can be played in single player mode, or it will become popular like Fortnite and they will release it later on as a bundle pack with all add-ons but not day one.

But I will give credit for the various Predator classes and designs, well done. Gameplay looks pretty fun as the Predators. If anything it'll be cool to see what future classes, weapons, and designs come of it.

Because, as I wrote, they don't have the upper/lower lips to create necessary suction with.

Mouth-wise, they're basically arachnids - and there are good reasons why nature never gave spiders boobs...

In fact, human-style cleavage is pretty rare even among mammals.

I love that you say this as definitive, as if you spent years as a infant Predator dental hygienist or a Predator pediatrician.  ;D

The truth is you don't know, and neither do I, what a baby Predator is like when it's young and what teeth or mandibles it has or doesn't have before growth into adulthood or how soft tissue it is, can it suck or what's within, what is inside it's mouth and what it's capable of.

I guess breasts or no breasts is our equivalent to the skull debate  :P
Is this also the first time we've seen an official 3d render of the female outside of statues?

All around I'm liking what I see. The aesthetic is pretty good to me though I'm actually kind of surprised we didn't see a movie helmet here though if we did I overlooked it. It seems the armor and helmets are inspired by the cinematic counterparts but very much aren't. The weapons are spot on though and real interesting that they went with P2 style instead of the more recent depictions. I definitely like the Berserker's armor and the female looks great even if we're all awkward about the bewbs. Somebody needs to get Neca on that regardless.

Only real reservation I have is the precedent of having Jungle Hunter be a pre-order bonus. That doesn't sit right with me especially considering that those inspired by him or if he's an unlockable he's normally in the game. Having a pre-order Jungle Hunter makes sense, but given the game is inspired by the original film it's kind of surprising he's not an in-game reward.
That all being said, P2 does get some representation that's looking more likely it'll be an alternate costume.

I hope I'm wrong, but with the Jungle Hunter being a pre-order bonus, I'm starting to unfortunately doubt if we will be getting a City Hunter model at all, let alone any Lost Predators, Super Predators or the Fugitive.

Yeah it seems like Ilfonic is for the most part doing its own thing..., which isn't necessarily a bad thing. We're all going to make our OC's anyways but the lack of the movie armors so far outside of Jungle Hunter (and being a Pre-order bonus at that) is a bit disappointing

However given that we have two big anniversaries next year I'm expecting City Hunter to drop closer to its 30th if its not in the base game. They went to the trouble of using the P2 spear and disk despite them only just using the shuriken in the solo film and most titles using the AVP spear. It'd probably end up paid DLC but I feel like City Hunter would drop for the game.

On some level I can agree with this. Though an option to give our Predator gear like the ones from the films even if they aren't specifically them makes sense given that the armor does show up again on other Predators. Jungle Hunter being common enough that even in the films it showed up three times.

I'm hoping the confirmation of a Jungle Hunter skin being in the game, even though it's a pre-order bonus, means we might see some other movie skins as high-level unlocks, similar to how Wolf was one of the last skins you unlocked for the Preds in AVP2010's multiplayer. It'd be cool to give them that sort of level of prestige that meant you really had to earn them, and would add an extra level to showing them off if you used them.

About the breasts, two things.

1. It is now lore that Preds inject themselves with human DNA, ergoooooooo, they probably got breast from that.

2. The babies, of cooooooourse, are not born with spikey teeth. They probably just got some nubs on the outer jaw that gently massage the breast to secrete milk that squirts into the inner jaw.

So pick your poison, or milk, you have two answers.

Now that this is done let's get to the serious questions.
Do you think that we will get the avp arcade game skins? And how much will they cost?

so it'd be logical to the fems not to have any...

Post by: Voodoo Magic on Dec 11, 2019, 01:35:24 PM
Jokers raises two good points. Let's move on.

Regarding the Yautja Bow, I hope there's something really creatively special about it, like the combi stick is to the spear. For me, Rambo-like explosive tipped arrows won't be enough. I know to be fair, we don't know much about it, other than it's capable of pinning enemies. Yet unfortunately at first glance, Hawkeye's bows appear way more technologically advanced than that.
Title: Re: New Trailer Revealed At Playstation State Of Play
Post by: SuperiorIronman on Dec 11, 2019, 02:41:09 PM
I'm forgiving of the bow and spear being separate weapons since it seems you could just as easily throw the spear. So having two throwing functionalities on a single weapon seems a bit much for a game.
There's also a couple different renditions of the spear gun and I don't think we've ever seen it on film either. I'm willing to let that slide in this case since we really could've taken one or the other be it bow or spear-gun.

New topic opened for pre-order and incentives discussion: https://www.avpgalaxy.net/forum/index.php?topic=63085.0

So I can finally sit down and have a response to this. Really cool trailer. I was really impressed to see both the combistick and the disc are both melee and ranged options. I always loved being able to throw the spear in AvP 2010 so really pleased to see it back in this. Same again for controlling the flight of the smart disc. 2010 had it to, but Hunting Grounds going for POV flight control is interesting. Has the potential to leave you vulnerable.

Absolutely f**king love the Predator archer. I think I said in a "weapons you'd like to see the Predator uses" thread on the boards that I would love to see someone rock up with a bow, so I'm especially pleased to see that show up. I certainly never expected it! I also didn't expect a female Predator.

It's cool to see them go the step further in Hunting Grounds. Still not keen on the boobs, but thankfully they've kept it to a reasonable cup size and not gone too far like with the huntress in The Hunt Begins!

Really nice to see some more skins! Still preferring the default one out of what we've seen, but that skull one is pretty freaking cool! I get the concerns about the classic being a pre-order incentive. I'm hoping that's unlockable some other way, but it doesn't say early access like the others. I hope any other film based skins are all unlockable in-game and not locked away behind other exclusivity.

Yay for being on the PC! But I've only ever heard bad things about Epic Store via RidgeTop. Not sure why it's bad, but just know he hates it like the rest of us hate Gearbox.

It's worth noting that it kind of resembles the P2 Elder's. If this game doesn't have any P2 representation in skins I'm going to be genuinely surprised. I think that's the third P2 weapon we've got here. Now if only they can get the City Hunter's plasmacaster in this.

I see what you're saying. I wouldn't use the word probably, nor would I personally necessarily associate Predators with reptiles. What I mean is we already have humans with webbed feet and hands caused by genetics, and they're not reptiles. We don't know what Predators truly are and if they are even related someway to humans.

I would never argue with people who don't like it. Who am I to do that, right? I just argue against the position that it's definitively incorrect to feature a female fictional Predator this way.  :)

Well, damn. I think you probably just destroyed any anti-boob argument.

Also, Predators use knives, swords, spears, guns, and anything else they can get their hands on. I would say that as a species they probably use a bow thousands of years before humans did. It's not lazy, its obvious. Its also well designed.

Ha! An official female Predator with boobs, I love it. Really I do, IDGAF. Anyway, this is probably one game I won't be playing because I'm not into online only MP, it's a glorified rental. But I will give credit for the various Predator classes and designs, well done. Gameplay looks pretty fun as the Predators. If anything it'll be cool to see what future classes, weapons, and designs come of it.

It's trash. If the predators we have seen and assume to be male have no nipples, then the female ones if any exist would have breasta as the serve zero purpose. That's the nail in the coffin of this debate. You can like it all you want it's still objectively in poor design taste and a pandering to perverts and women to get them more involved in the franchise.

Exactly. And no nipples can be seen ever on screen. Which is the only place were lore is canon and why these stupid titted up pamela anderson looking predatora should never crossover to the movies. We don't need to know there sex and if it's somehow ever pertinent to the story they need to find a better, intelligent, and more so to way to do so.

Ha! An official female Predator with boobs, I love it. Really I do, IDGAF. Anyway, this is probably one game I won't be playing because I'm not into online only MP, it's a glorified rental. But I will give credit for the various Predator classes and designs, well done. Gameplay looks pretty fun as the Predators. If anything it'll be cool to see what future classes, weapons, and designs come of it.

It's trash. If the predators we have seen and assume to be male have no nipples, then the female ones if any exist would have breasta as the serve zero purpose. That's the nail in the coffin of this debate. You can like it all you want it's still objectively in poor design taste and a pandering to perverts and women to get them more involved in the franchise.

Good point,
of course, just one last thing - the shape of the body of an animal is highly depending on the niche that it lives in (whales and dolphins look like fish for example) or the route that it took through its evolution.
So in sci-fy, a reptile-like creature with human body shape isn't the weirdest thing...but it probably would not have a milking apparatus...

Exactly. And no nipples can be seen ever on screen. Which is the only place were lore is canon and why these stupid titted up pamela anderson looking predatora should never crossover to the movies. We don't need to know there sex and if it's somehow ever pertinent to the story they need to find a better, intelligent, and more so to way to do so.

I see what you're saying. I wouldn't use the word probably, nor would I personally necessarily associate Predators with reptiles. What I mean is we already have humans with webbed feet and hands caused by genetics, and they're not reptiles. We don't know what Predators truly are and if they are even related someway to humans.

I would never argue with people who don't like it. Who am I to do that, right? I just argue against the position that it's definitively incorrect to feature a female fictional Predator this way.  :)

It is definitely wrong to do so, you are just choosing to ignore the evidence in favor of your subjective tatses

Ignore what evidence? What evidence of a fictional intergalactic space hunter made up by two first time script writers have we missed? Oy.

The great Predator nipple debate of 2019!  :laugh:

With humans we know we both start the same genetically, and that's why males and females have nipples. A couple months later, your X or Y chromosome dictates what happens from there - male or female. But here's a little secret. Predators are not humans. They're humanoids.

Who knows, with Predators, maybe they don't have chromosomes that decide sex. Maybe they have just male and female sperm type things that decide their sex. They are aliens ya know, fictional at that!

Don't like it, okay, but stop thinking there is a definitive answer on this, and actual "evidence"!  :P

IMO giving a female Predator boobs is one of the easiest things if not the best to do to have her distinguished in someway from a male counterpart. We can argue about that they are like lizards and they should not have human body features etc. Although from a point of viewer (a fan, gamer, non-gamer), it is the easiest way to recognize their sex. Especially in the fast paced video game.

One thing I only noticed after watching the trailer again is it looks like we'll be able to customise our Predator's skin colour. During the shots of all the different masks and armour colours the skin changes colours with each one too. Some are lighter with green spots, some have that dark brown/red City Hunter kinda look.

Definitely another very cool feature if that's the case.

It does rather make me think the pre-order Jungle Hunter skin might be the only movie skin we might get. I hope I'm wrong obviously, but I'm thinking the same, that we might get some customisable cosmetics that are inspired by those Preds rather than straight-up being them.

I'm wondering how split the appearance customisation is. Maybe it's a case of getting complete armour sets?
Title: Re: New Trailer Revealed At Playstation State Of Play
Post by: Kailem on Dec 17, 2019, 09:22:07 AM
I'm thinking the colouring and patterns on the armour and masks are going to be separately customisable from the masks and armour themselves, rather than just "this mask is this colour" like we got in some previous games.

In the trailer one of the masks we saw was this red one:

(https://www.avpgalaxy.net/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/10122019_03b.jpg)

Then the screenshots show what looks to be the same mask, only this time it's grey and with a skull-type camo pattern on it:

(https://vulcan.dl.playstation.net/img/cfn/11307a2UhFMD_HP9Q5VI631xURsjwsaYY_oUaBpxlxQT2Kt81VoUPnt8WDx2dqJeGfK11QLylgEM7VXYxSqz6wIzcKQvmH_e.png)

Add to that the text for the digital deluxe edition, which mentions "Playstation themed Predator and armour skin mask war paint", which implies that we'll be able to add colours/camo to the masks and armour we get (I'm thinking by default it'll be the traditional grey/silver, then we can change it if we want).

If that's the case then that'll be great, because that's just about the best way you could have a customisable video game Predator. It means that even if two people have the same masks and armour on their Predators could still look pretty different from one another.

There is some aesthetic stuff that bothers me a little bit by looking at the screenshots from the game:
- a tiny version of shoulder cannon that looks more like a toy than intimidating weapon,
- Predator's short feet,
- bulky wrist devices- wristblade and computer bands.
Yes, I know it is the work-in-progress.

Anyway the game looks very satisfactory but two more things I still wish to see are AI bots and City Hunter skin.

Streamlining the idea this way is not so good IMO.
For example a version of plasma caster in the first two screenshots looks weird in comparison to the one in the third one. However I am generally OK with the developers' aesthetical choices for the game.

On the other hand they can always go to an opposite extremum and make those cannons ridiculously oversized, but like I mentioned before, those few issues bother me only a little bit. And it seems I do not have to be stuck with this particular plasma caster forever.
Not to mention a great gameplay is the main key to me.
Title: Re: New Trailer Revealed At Playstation State Of Play
Post by: Kailem on Dec 19, 2019, 06:59:21 AM
I think part of the reason for that could be that with these newer pics the base/mount seems to be very big, which in turn makes the cannon itself look a bit small by comparison. In that third/older pic the mount doesn't seem quite as large as it does now.

It's not something that bothers me personally, but I see where you're coming from. And if we're lucky maybe we'll get to customise the appearance of our weapons too so you could choose one that looks a bit bigger.

The lack of accuracy and slow firing pace with the plasma caster has always botherd me. Something so high-tech and cool and powerful yet seems to be far from a sharp shooting weapon unless shooting someone in the back from up in a tree and that person is basicly standing still. Maybe I am wrong.

The Super Predators did have a gun that fired significantly faster. We know the bolts are fairly slow and so from the games as the best example they have to lead the shot and aim where the opponent is moving.
That being said we do know they have weapons that fire faster and possess better aim like the blazer, it's just that they aren't normally taken on hunting trips. It's also probably why they tend to use the tri-laser as it seems to be a targeting lock for the gun even if they can fire it manually but it seems that can't generally account for a fast moving target even if it gets most things.
Title: Re: New Trailer Revealed At Playstation State Of Play
Post by: Enjoy on Dec 19, 2019, 07:44:56 PM
I might be wrong but a faster charge speed and faster traveling speed for the plasma bolt would fix the issue and maybe some kind of tracking ability for the plasma ? I would be ok with a plasma bolt that could chase a target for a short time
I guess a slow plasma shot would be just fine in close combat and for taking out a blind target
Title: Re: New Trailer Revealed At Playstation State Of Play
Post by: Kailem on Dec 23, 2019, 01:51:16 PM
Some new pics and details about some of the stuff that was revealed in the trailer have gone up over on the game's Playstation page:

https://www.playstation.com/en-us/games/predator-hunting-grounds-ps4/

Firstly it looks like we'll be starting off playing as the Scout class Predator, rather than the Hunter which is what I initially thought we might have as our default. The Hunter and Berserker classes are unlocked later. The Smart Disc and "Yautja Bow" are also weapons that need to be unlocked after ranking up. Sounds like the Combistick will be available from the get-go.

A description of the three classes:

"Scout Class

The Scout Predator is quick, light, and adept with ranged weaponry. Advantages include speed, stamina and recovery, its energy recharge rate, and the ability to pounce and jump farther.  A Scout has a lower health reserve, so has a disadvantage with up close melee weapons and can't carry as much gear as other classes.
"

"Hunter Class*

The Hunter class is a well-balanced, versatile and adaptive warrior who is in the median with strength, health, speed, stamina and recovery, and overall melee power. 
"

"Berserker Class*

The largest of the Predators, Berserkers are brutes with the highest health, the strongest melee weapon damage, and significant energy reserves. But with great bulk and towering strength comes slower movement and energy recharge rate, sluggish stamina, and a less-lengthy pounce.
"

There are also some pics of some of the new masks:

(https://media.playstation.com/is/image/SCEA/predator-hunting-grounds-mask-01-ps4-05dec19-en-us?$native_md_nt$)
(https://media.playstation.com/is/image/SCEA/predator-hunting-grounds-mask-02-ps4-05dec19-en-us?$native_md_nt$)
(https://media.playstation.com/is/image/SCEA/predator-hunting-grounds-mask-03-ps4-05dec19-en-us?$native_md_nt$)
(https://media.playstation.com/is/image/SCEA/predator-hunting-grounds-mask-04-ps4-05dec19-en-us?$native_md_nt$)

A shot from one of the new maps:

(https://media.playstation.com/is/image/SCEA/predator-hunting-grounds-background-05-ps4-27nov19-en-us?$native_xxl_nt$)

Along with the Stargazer-featuring mission from the demo that's been doing the convention rounds the description of the human objectives also mentions "taking out an infamous drug lord", so maybe that map is part of some cartel compound or something like that? Would be cool to maybe get some sort of nod to Hunters 3 in there somewhere since that'll be coming out around about then too, but probably unlikely.

Also a couple of new shots of the soldier characters:

(https://media.playstation.com/is/image/SCEA/predator-hunting-grounds-scout-01-ps4-27nov19-en-us?$native_md_nt$)

Thanks for sharing Kailem.

I'm definitely surprised the Hunter class is not the default class. That really appears to be the best fit for novice players.

I'm also liking those helmets. I was hoping to see a match to what NECA is working on - it's close but no cigar.
Title: Re: New Trailer Revealed At Playstation State Of Play
Post by: Kailem on Dec 23, 2019, 03:17:50 PM
Yeah I can only assume that perhaps they want to try and teach people that the Predator's not invincible, and that running into the middle of a group of four human players and trying to melee-spam your way to victory isn't a very good idea, so they're trying to emphasise staying away and being sneaky with long-range weapons to start off with.

Still, I'm surprised the Hunter isn't going to be the default class too. It seems like the basic "jack of all trades" archetypes are always the ones you start off with in everything.

And yeah no exact match with that NECA tease here, though maybe it's another mask we haven't seen yet. That "Eclipse" mask hasn't been shown anywhere except the pre-order bonus page from what I can see, so hopefully there are others we haven't seen at all yet too.

The Berserker strikes me more based on the film AVP Predators. Though its of course not the same suit and could just as easily been the same sort of idea with the implication that the armor is just part of a larger set.

It's also not the Super Predators so I'm not surprised he doesn't look like them. That being said I sincerely hope the Super Predators are playable. They do cameo (at least as a skull) on an Archie Versus Predator cover so it's not like we've forgotten about them.

Yeah I'm a fan of Predators too and I really like the addition of the Supers/Berserkers to the lore, so I'd be all in favour of them being playable in this.

And yeah I feel like you could be right about them being more AVP-inspired than Predators. That actually makes a lot of sense given how large they came off in that film.

Just noticed that some Predators don't have the plasmacaster and backpack. I'm wondering if this means we wont have the medical kit if we don't have the cannon seeing as the gun is typically mounted on the medical kit.

In some of the gameplay footage you can see the medicomp takes up an item slot when the player is switching weapons, and it's listed in the pre-match loadout screen in some of the demos, so maybe that's an indication that we can choose not to have it and rather use that slot for another weapon or piece of gear.

If that's the case I'd imagine it wouldn't be too good of an idea for anyone other than the Berserker, since he'll have the most health by default.

I'd love to see skins of pretty much all the movie Preds. Wolf and Mr Black would definitely be my most wanted after City Hunter (and Jungle Hunter obviously, but we already know we're getting him).

The whip could be a fun inclusion too. Just no shurikens, please! :laugh:

The shurikens are awesome weapons and you know it.

I am totally not biased.

I'm all for shurikens too. I love both them, and the smart discs.

#TeamDisc

Though I admit, if one forced me on a psychiatrist couch and weeded through this brain of mine, much of my loathing for the Shuriken would be revealed as actual loathing for director Paul W. S. Anderson and his lack of appreciation for the Smart Disc and comparing it to a frisbee!

Go take your Shuriken, your American Football Shoulder Pads, your human eyes and your goofy-way-too-long gauntlet knives and go mess up another beloved creature Paul!  Go, get lost! >:(

Okay, now I feel better.  ;D

Since the smart disk is guidable and you could make the shurikens different by giving you a few that can be thrown rapidly and fly fast but aren't guidable.

^ Yeah I don't think I'd have a problem with them if they worked like that. The reason I dislike them is they're basically identical to the disc in function, thus making them unnecessary, yet also seeming way less practical in how they're used, with no obviously visible reason for how they work the way they do.

Granted if we're talking about "realism" the smart disc would also probably be deadly as hell to try and catch when it came back to you, but at least the lights and sounds indicate technology is in play, so we can take it as having some sort of guidance system that likely helps with it returning to the user safely. But the shurikens seem like they'd be impossible to catch without slicing your hand off and just operate 100% on the "rule of cool."

At least The Predator tried to explain them a little bit with the mention of them actually having some sort of tech that seemingly has them home back in on the wrist gauntlet or something, but even then the results were exactly what I've always figured should happen with those things. :laugh:

Y'know I actually refer to the Smart disk as the "death Frisbee". It's a fun weapon lets have it be fun and call it what it is. ;D

If the shurikens show up I'd imagine they'd have something like a visible arc to the player indicating where the player needs to be in order to grab them as otherwise they'd get stuck in something or fly off into the distance. So while you could guide the Smart Disk, the shuriken you can carry more of but you can't necessarily control where it goes.

I'd actually like a system where if a weapon gets dropped a Human player might be able to pick it up. We've seen Humans handle Predator gear to some extent so say the shuriken gets dropped somewhere and a player gets it, they could throw it but unlike the Predator they cant catch it so they have to get out of range on the return.

It's my understanding the Smart Disc doesn't have sharp edges when its attack mode is off, but is only sharp when activated, which is why when it hangs and bangs against Harrigan's body it doesn't even cut his shirt let alone his torso.

So when you don't think of it as a rotary saw blade, coming back attack-deactivated you can imagine it's actually quite easy for a Predator to catch.

WINNER : SMART DISC !

Instead of weaponry from AvP1+2, Predators and The Predator films, I would like to have an extra mode-'Capture the Predator' where the Fireteam uses OWLF thermally insulated suits (that can be damaged making a user visible), radioactive dust (that can be sprayed on leaves, tree trunks etc. and sticks to passing through them Predator) and cryogenic weapons. So Predator can mainly rely on sound hints and leaves-branches-water movements.

If you slow the trailer right down at the part where it shows the Predator collecting his trophies (around the 1:30 minute mark) you can see a white smart disc icon in the world indicating that it has to be retrieved. So it looks like it might not always return to the user automatically. Might be an AVP2-type situation where sometimes you either have to collect it yourself or else use energy to bring it back.

Yeah, I imagine it's going to be an energy thing. Whether it's a case of being left in the world because of no energy, or it being an actual choice to auto retrieve it.

Looks to me that it has a time limit of control. I guess the idea is that you use it to make an attack and guide it back to yourself or you guide it a distance that makes you need to pick it up at distance. It could very likely get stuck in soft targets as well. Although I suppose that's what you meant by energy.
