Sony's State of Play 5/9 - Predator: Hunting Grounds Announced


Alright, sound the alarm people: there's a new Predator game coming to the PS4, and it actually might be good. In development by IllFonic, which is the same studio that brought us Friday the 13th: The Game, Hunting Grounds is competitive multiplayer shooter that has one player playing as the Predator!

Check out the Predator: Hunting Grounds trailer below and look for the game to arrive in 2020. It pits a team of human soldiers in a jungle setting against a Predator with gadgets like active camouflage and heat vision. You'll even have the option to play as the Predator, which shouldn't come as too much of a surprise.

CEO at IllFonic Charles Brungardt went on the PlayStation Blog to talk a bit about the game. "When I first saw this scene at 10 years old, it sent a shiver down my spine". That's why it'll take a lot of you to take down one of them. This gets to the heart of what makes the Predator universe so freakin' awesome. Due to this, the game will consist of a group of players that will control a fireteam and other player controlling the deadly stealth menace that is the Predator. "The paramilitary guys will be tasked with shooting up bad guys and recovering loot as the Predator closes in, tracking and ambushing its prey".

Soon more details will be revealed, although it is already confirmed that to play the game it will be necessary to have an active subscription to PlayStation Plus.
