We saw a "parry" prompt in an earlier trailer when a human player was being attacked, so I guess it makes sense there'd be some way to defend against a Predator just jumping right in your face and slashing away, so long as you're able to hit the timing (assuming that's how it's going to work).
Also, yes! New footage! Beta (essentially)! Netgun!
To be honest I wasn't really expecting a beta or trial or anything since I figured it would have been announced before now, so that's great news that we'll be playing the game in a month's time instead of two! And the netgun is a weapon I definitely wasn't holding out any hope for. I figured it might have just been too difficult to implement in the type of environments they're going for, but I'm very pleased to see its inclusion! I'm really glad they've got all the main P2 weapons in there, I definitely regard all of those as classics that deserve inclusion in any and all Predator games.
