Predator: Hunting Grounds Gameplay Revealed At Gamescom 2019 (VIDEO)
While their mortal Alien counterparts have had a great game this console generation, Predators have been left out in the rain. While they’ve been able to join in on the fun making cameo appearances in games like Mortal Kombat X and Ghost Recon Wildlands, we’ve yet to see a full game based on the legendary intergalactic hunters. Luckily that’s about to change as Predator: Hunting Grounds was revealed back in May at Sony’s State of Play Event. Check out the newest trailer from Gamescom that features our first look at Gameplay:
The multiplayer survival game will be developed by IllFonic. The studio’s pedigree includes games like Friday the 13th, Dead Alliance, and Evolve. Given the structure of the multiplayer modes in those games, it seems like a perfect match for the studio to handle a game based on Predator.
There seems to be a considerable amount of FPS and PvE based gameplay in this game, not something really seen in genre contemporaries like Dead by Daylight and Friday the 13th. It looks like 4 Human Spec Ops players will be completing objectives against an enemy force of other soldiers, while a Predator player stalks them. Perhaps the Predator can choose to attack at any time, but may want to wait until humans are isolated to get the kill. Maybe let players get a little damaged from NPC gunfire before closing in to finish them off? If these possibilities exist, they certainly setup some interesting scenarios. Gameplay took place solely in a jungle environment but perhaps other locales from other movies might pop up.
Like urban L.A. in Predator 2 or maybe the icy tombs from Alien Vs Predator? We’ll be sure to let you know every new detail here as we await Predator Hunting Grounds’ release exclusively on PlayStation 4 sometime in 2020.
