The Predator returns to hunt on Earth in a new multiplayer shooter for PlayStation 4
The Predator, one of sci-fi cinema’s classic alien creatures, returns in his own game for the Sony PlayStation in 2020. This is Predator: Hunting Grounds.
Over the years, the crab faced creature has only appeared in battles against his foe, the alien, in various PC and console games bearing the Alien vs Predator banner.
The Predator did have a stand-alone adventure, Concrete Jungle released on PlayStation 2 and original Xbox that received a lukewarm reception on release. Previously, there were only the 8 and 16 bit home computer games based on the first two Predator films.
Now the Predator is being brought bang up to date with a brand new multiplayer shooter on the PlayStation 4, Predator: Hunting Grounds.
In this multiplayer shooter for five players, a lone Predator will take on an elite Fire Team of four men. Whilst the Fire Team will play in the traditional first-person view, the Predator will be played from a third-person perspective.
This is to allow the player better control over the alien hunter as he has the ability to use the treetops and other high grounds to stalk his human prey. Those players as the Fire Team better remember to look up!
Based primarily on the original film, the in-game Predator will have access to his wrist blades and shoulder-mounted plasma cannon. Also, the developers have teased other multiplayer maps based on other areas, not just jungle locations.
This trailer is early pre-Alpha footage from the development of the game and more will be revealed as we get closer to the release date.
Predator: Hunting Grounds will be released in 2020 on PlayStation 4.
