Get ready for a shoulder cannon blast from the past. The Predator will soon return, and this point he’s bringing friends to hunt you and your buddies.
Predator: Hunting Grounds, the newest project from developer IllFonic, puts you within the invisible skin of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s greatest enemy. IllFonic has something of a penchant for turning bloody, old-style movies into games.
Its previous work includes the delightfully chaotic Friday The 13th: the game. Now, it is time to go back to the jungles to seek out the first deadly prey of all: gamers.
When Will Predator: Hunting Grounds Release?
Announced during Sony’s 2019 State of Play, IllFonic invited gamers to hunt or be hunted when Predator: Hunting Grounds releases on April 24, 2020.
A number of the opposite news perhaps eclipsed this tiny gem at the event: Resident Evil 3 making an unexpected return, Dreams capturing hearts and artistic minds.
And, therefore, the Untitled Goose Game stealing the show and a few everyday garden items.
But hey: Predator: Hunting Grounds deserves a number of the spotlights. The trailer was appropriately blood-soaked and exciting, giving players a glimpse into the planet IllFonic has dreamed up.
Is there a trailer for Predator: Hunting Grounds?
If you’re sick and have less intensity, then close your eyes. The Predator: Hunting Grounds reveal trailer takes some serious cues from the first films. IllFonic outfitted its cast of Predators with a deadly array of alien weapons that maim, dismember, and bloody the puny humans they pursue.
The prey even has guns galore, but firearms are nothing compared to slicing smart discs, harpoons, bows, which iconic shoulder cannon.
Once Predators remove their prey, they collect a trophy from their kill. Just in case you haven’t seen the films, here’s the lowdown: they burst out their victim’s skull and vertebral column.
It will, presumably, look charming over their alien mantel. Sound brutal? Well, because the trailer warns: it’s hunt or be hunted in Predator: Hunting Grounds.
What Consoles Will Predator: Hunting Grounds Be On?
Predator: Hunting Grounds will release on both PC and PlayStation 4. It is often finally a game, you can play with friends who don’t mind being assaulted by their playmates, so online connectivity is vital.
The task of avoiding being murdered by the Predator might take some cooperation.
What Characters Are In Predator: Hunting Grounds?
While you should not expect a cameo by Mr. Schwarzenegger himself, there are many callbacks to the 1987 adventure.
Upon pre-ordering the sport, humans can unlock the “Ole Painless” minigun that’s anything but painless, and Predators will have access to a skin supported the Predator from the first film.
The Predators are wholly new characters with new backgrounds that IllFonic crafted. This game has three different classes of Predator to weave with players’ most famous killing schemes: a Hunter for more balanced gameplay.
A Berserker for those that want to unleash their inner beast. And a Scout for the silent but deadly assassinations.
IllFonic has also included a female Predator, a welcome addition to the sport. Predators are all about the hunt, not gender roles, after all.
