Predator fans are finally getting a game that is deserving of its name. It was announced today during the State of Play event held by Sony Interactive Entertainment and the game is being developed by IllFonic, who previously worked on Friday the 13th series.
Predator: Hunting Grounds is an online asymmetrical multiplayer shooter that will put a team of soldiers against the deadly predator. This might sound similar to how Friday the 13th plays out because it was developed by the same developer.
The reveal trailer for Predator: Hunting Grounds doesn’t show any gameplay so it is completely useless. You can have a look at the cinematic trailer below.
Here is an overview of the game from the CEO of Illfonic, Charles Brungardt. It explains how they are planning to work on the gameplay for this online multiplayer shooter.
One group of players will control members of an elite Fireteam who pack state-of-the-art conventional firepower, from shotguns, and SMGs to sniper rifles and more.
Meanwhile, one player will control the Predator: a stealthy, acrobatic killing machine bristling with exotic alien technology such as the infamous Plasmacaster.
As the Fireteam attempt to carry out paramilitary missions—annihilating bad guys and recovering important items—the Predator will be closing in, using its advanced vision mode to track and ambush its prey.
Predator: Hunting Grounds is set to launch in 2020 for the PS4. Other platforms are not yet confirmed as of now.
