So I may just have seen it wrong, but it looks like the Predator at the end of the trailer is different to the one at the start. I will admit that it might just be lighting, but the color of the armor is darker to the other shot and the helmet seems different. I may just be seeing things but that helmet looks like the Berserker's. Am I just crazy or is someone else seeing that?

The plasmacaster I think might also be the 2018 model. It looks smaller and the mount is wrong.

I think they just low-key revealed customization here

Anyone notice the Stargazer namedrop? They're going after Stargazer.

Yes!  They have to "Upload the malware to Stargazer's network". Could that be shade thrown towards The Predator maybe? ;D

Also the Ain't got time to Bleed cassette tape. 

The satcom said it was cool with Predator mouths that didn't close.

Sony just uploaded a pretty hefty article about the game.

https://blog.eu.playstation.com/2019/08/19/first-gameplay-footage-of-predator-hunting-grounds-unveiled/

A few select quotes while I skim read:

Quote
We used Predator ’87 for a majority of our inspiration for the game. Which we hope the gamers can see from the jungle environment, but also in the lengths we went to behind the scenes. We researched the original weapons and actually recorded them being fired in heavily wooded areas to make sure the sound and reverberation of bounding around trees and leaves was as accurate as possible in-game.

We of course take ’87 and evolve with current day weapons and technology; we want the Fire Team to be able to be at the top of their game against the universe’s deadliest hunter. In addition, we actually tracked down the synthesizers used in the original score.

These are just a few examples of the level of detail the team is aiming for as we create Predator: Hunting Grounds. It’s been a childhood dream to work on a Predator game. The little kid in me that would play Predator in the woods with friends is beyond stoked!

Quote
We have taken our inspiration from the ’87 Predator over the other films because we believe it’s the true crown jewel of the IP. We hope that fans of the films will see this game as a bit of a love letter to the film.

That being said our game takes place a few decades in the future, so we needed to incorporate all the films into the story. Gamers will see this in little reveals. For example, we have tied Stargazer from the most recent film, then added some interesting backstory between the two factions. We cannot wait for the community to get into the game and see how we have brought it all together!

Quote
We created a system for the Predator that we call “Predkour” in the studios; think parkour meets Predator. The Predator has the ability to attack from above as well as on the ground, just like in the films. This meant we needed to create a system for the Predator to climb into the trees and move limb from limb, or structure. The Predkour system has really been the most challenging element to the game. We wanted the Predator’s movement from tree-to-tree to feel effortless and make you feel inhuman with your ability to bound around the map.

This also lends to why the Predator is in third person, versus the Fire Team’s first person. The third person view for Predator really allows the player to see not only the Predator, but also the paths available for the Predator to take; as well as hunt at the same time.

Bit of a clearer look at the mask:



I'm getting kind of Ahab vibes.

This right here:

We’re early in development—this was all captured from a pre-alpha build, but it still gives you an idea of our vision for this project.

Well that's very cool for die-hard fans. Not just Predator, but Predator 2, Predators and The Predator.

I do hope we're going to see some none jungle maps, though. Give me some Stargazer bases, a Predator ship, etc.

Yes, me too. I'm holding out hope for a Los Angeles or City map and a Hunting Reserve Planet map - which is just another modified Jungle map so it should be relatively easy to do.

An OWLF/Stargazer base might be cool, but that may be tricky because the low ceilings would severely limit the Predator.

Well The Predator showed that even a drugged and groggy Predator can make for a decent scene so I imagine it shouldn't be too hard to turn into a level. Otherwise they could use the exterior of a compound.

There's also the capacity to balance it with the Emissary. If the Emissary are with Stargazer then the A.I could act as teammates to the Predator. It'd be a roundabout way of bringing them back and balance a match but it could work.

I shouldn't be suprised about the stargazer nod. These games usually try to have some connection with the last released movie.

I would prefer nods to even the AVP movies rather than The Predator.

Gonna be honest and say I didn't catch that the first two times around. Pretty interesting though that you're fighting Stargazer forces...maybe they've "gone rogue" and are acting on their own in this games story?

Maybe it's Borgia?
I can't think of any other organizations out of the gate that would want to take down Stargazer or know of its existence, and I'd imagine the Predator Hunters would much rather work with them.

Emissary 2.0?  :-\
