Go up there and see what you can find out about upcoming DLC!  And if they ask, just say you were looking for the frozen food section!

Finally getting around to giving this a listen and I love that they're such huge fans of the IP including the extended universe! Also they have an office in Denver?! So I looked it up and it's in an office complex above the grocery store that I frequent and my mind's blown about that lol! All this time when I'm shopping Illfonic has been creating this awesome game right above my head! Wild.

That was great. It was great to hear the developers talk about the game.

Nice podcast, really appreciate the work that you put into the interview.  Thanks guys  :)

Can't say I agree with his bit about the female predator, but I understand this is only one iteration among many.  Maybe one day there'll be consistency across the EU!  I do admire the thought they've put into creating this game, I feel like it is definitely in good hands and the payoff will be great.

Will players be able to join in the same fireteam, or will the make-up of the teams be totally random (i.e. randomly assigned)?

From what I can find it does spin in Mortal Kombat X, and you can see it spin a bit in the Predator's special move. I want to think AVP Extinction and AVP 2010 do though I could be wrong, with Concrete Jungle I can't really tell.

Quote from: SpaceKase on Feb 21, 2020, 04:26:49 PMI seem to recall some tracer action in one of the games akin to the discs from Tron 2.0.

Yeah, you're thinking AvP2 with that one. I can't recall specifically off-hand if the other games did any spinning though.

I hear ya. It kind of implies the spinning of the actual smart disc itself is what makes it cut, which is false. But overall, I'm just glad it's incorporated into the game. :)

Great interview guys! This game looks so wicked, the only tiiiiny thing that bugs me from the game trailer is the action of the Smart-Disc, in the films when thrown, it doesn't spin, its got smart guidance and propels forward towards its target like a drone, sides of beef be damned. The spinning in the trailer looks rad, but as a big Predator 2 fan, this kinetic detail instantly stuck out to me. I seem to recall some tracer action in one of the games akin to the discs from Tron 2.0, but I may be mis-remembering, did the discs spin in previous games? If so, it would totally make sense to carry forward with this spinning style instead.

Regardless, in general everything in this looks gorgeous, the love for the lore here is evident. Can't wait to see more. Thanks again, crew!

The potential follow-up podcast would be great. Some guests, no fault of their own, can be less engaging and therefore less interesting in a podcast format, but I can listen to Chuck and Jared all day!




Maybe I'm looney-tunes. Okay, not maybe,  ;D but am I the only one, based on previous interviews, and now listening very carefully to this podcast, that believes the gents at Illfonic have been hinting something else is in the oven / coming down the pike with Predator other than the Hunting Grounds game and Stalking Shadows novel?

I say this once, and I say it as an administrator here and as someone who doesn't like the breasts on female Predators - liking the design doesn't make someone a perv or DeviantArt weirdo. There's no denying that there are groups of all fandoms that sexualize things - Rule 34 is a thing - but I'm not seeing anyone fapping away here.

And one of our rules is that we respect each other and we're pleasant. Blanketing everyone as a perv is neither. So consider this your one and only warning regarding the matter. If you're unable to discuss your issues without insults, don't bother joining in. Besides, if everyone on these forums is the reason for the breasted Predators, might as well not bother hanging around us.

I like that podcasts come out with set frequency. Good job with that .

Thank you! We try.  :)

What questions do you think were missing?

Offline modes, Predator 2 skin, future plans for dlc, quantity of maps, cross play with PCs, PS5 compatibility, etc.

We'll find out more in the future. If the questions had been asked, it'd have been a simple "can't talk about that at this time."

Good to know it takes place after The Predator.
I was wondering about that. I guess the prequel novel will also be set after the movie.

It would seem to have a bigger bridge. The synopsis makes it sound like it takes place following Predator 2, dealing with the aftermath of the film.


Quote from: Katanu on Feb 18, 2020, 12:36:23 AM
I actually like Predators a lot, and would love to see some skins from that movie.

Same. I'm a big fan of Predators. Even considering how disappointing AvP, Requiem and The Predator are, I'd still love to see some skins based around them.

The return of O.W.L.F.  Yes!!

That's something I'm really happy about myself. OWLF are just not utilized enough in the EU.

QuoteSo glad the Illfonic pitch won the gig, but I wonder what that other company and that other pitch was that was turned down by Fox.

Yeah, that's my bad for not following up on this one.

QuoteDamn! No physical special collector's edition.  :'(

I feel that one.  :'(

QuoteIn all fairness, unless we wanted 3 hours of podcasting , there wasn't enough time for anymore questions! These guys just went on and on which was so great, resulting in an interview I bet that makes the lives of Hicks and RidgeTop so easy, especially compared to the opposite.

I'm glad you enjoyed it! Chuck and Jared were great guests. Really looking forward to having them on again when they can talk about the rest of what Hunting Grounds has to offer.
