Following IllFonic’s success with Friday the 13th, their next ’80s based game will be Predator: Hunting Grounds.
While the game is set to release in 2020, here is an overview of it:
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.
Creating an immersive world for the Predator universe has been so rewarding for our team. We’re massive fans of this IP, and it’s made us closely examine every aspect of the game to be certain we are staying true to the world. Fox has been an incredible part of this process.
Based off the explanation, it makes sense, given their previous success, though there are already concerns it might go the same path as Evolve. If you didn’t play it, basically it was another game where one person played an extremely powerful monster, with four other people trying to stop it with super weapons. The issue was people didn’t like playing their roles, it was a bit overly dependent on teamwork and simply not fun for the average player to experience.
Hopefully time will tell but for now, let’s be happy we’re getting another quality Predator game.
