Dafuk?

Well this is disappointing... I want Mr. Scar. Seems like they're trying to ride of the hype of the new Assassin's Creed release.

I'm sure Narin fans will appreciate the axe though.

I find myself a little apathetic here. I just don't find this one exciting at all. The game lost me about 2 months ago, and nothing it's done has pulled me back in yet.

It is up on PSN and the new update is downloading now.

Viking according to the PS store says that the Vikings encountered it and kept encountering it due to the expansion of borders. They would also send warriors to face it in combat so I'd imagine this one looks the way he does because of it. If it was present so regularly it might look the way it does because it's getting into the role though Predators with scrollwork isn't uncommon so perhaps this in-universe is just a coincidence. It does have only one eye though which is a kind of cute Odin reference. I was wrong about the dreads though as they're the thicker variant and it indeed does use the normal Predator head like Samurai.

Did some minor stat testing for Viking.

Cloak lasts for 1:10

Thermal lasts for 1:27

Both active for 55 seconds

Generally not bad stats.

The new "Want some candy?" line will cause some clicking so if your already noticed via vocal mimicry you're definitely going to get noticed with this. Sound mixing sounds alright here.

Viking can do two leaps in a row this will probably be changed with perks.
Battle Axe stealth is pretty wuick and attacks are pretty fast as well.

I see a lot I like in this update. Gonna run some FT and see how specializations are doing but overall I'm expecting the Viking to be a challenge.

Looks like the firetesm got some major changes this patch,  the classes all do something even more significant with more of a reason to be those specific classes.

Seems like there's some new important stuff in the files, posted some of it on the Datamine thread, but basically, we are getting a new map and a new mode soon.

They've got some cosmetics in the DLC roadmap image, but the patch notes don't mention any?

They buffed the fireteam again on this update huh. Because the nerfs the Predator had over the last months weren't enough. The Viking seems like a Berserker that cant carry gear,  looks interesting but it might be a pain in the ass to use.

I bought the DLC on PC but I have yet to receive it, seems like a bug for all PC players.

Battle Axe seems fun, it's odd how the Viking mask with gold accents can't be selected, it's featured in the marketing images. Can't be used on females either.

Also, some people on their forums are upset with the Jungle Hunter nerf, seems like a strange decision.

Out of all the Predator classes they could f**k it... The goddamn original one. Screw our Preorder bonus.

So I have been using a nerfed Hunter as my main this entire time?  :-\

Why make him weaker in the first place? Its the goddamn original Predator.

I feel like he should be stronger than base hunter in some stats, the Pred from the first movie wasn't a young blood, he was hunting by himself with no Elders watching him, he is more experienced
