If it bleeds, we can (probably) kill it.
Predator: Hunting Grounds, an asymmetrical multiplayer action game, has been revealed.
The announcement came as part of Sony’s State of Play for May 2019 alongside a cinematic trailer for the game.
The trailer features a group of well-armed soldiers exploring what appears to be a South American jungle before panning up to reveal a predator de-cloaking itself in the trees above them.
According to the reveal announcement, “pits a fire team against the stealthy killing machine.” A post on the official Playstation Blog went further into detail on gameplay elements, explaining:
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 being developed by Illphonic in conjunction with 20th Century Fox, and is currently planned for a 2020 release window on PS4.
