Predator: Hunting Grounds Revealed by Friday the 13th: The Game Studio Illfonic
Return to the deadly, hot jungle with the upcoming title revealed during yesterday's PlayStation State of Play stream.
By Jay Gervais
Yesterday, PlayStation’s latest State of Play stream revealed Illfonic’s next big title, Predator: Hunting Grounds. As you probably know, this is the same developer behind Friday the 13th: The Game. The studio's new game is described as an asymmetrical multiplayer game, which basically means that you can be either the Predator or the team being hunted by it.
It’s worth noting the above reveal trailer doesn’t show any actual gameplay, so it remains to be seen what the in-game experience will look like for players. Perhaps this is but a smaller teaser that might lead us to a much bigger reveal at next month’s E3, which is taking place from June 11th to the 13th at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
It also looks as though the game is taking inspiration from the initial film in the series with the return of the jungle environment, but this might be just one of many playable levels in the game. One thing is for certain: a relentless Predator will ensure you and your team’s day goes from bad to worse. You’ll even have the option to play as the Predator, which shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise.
Predator: Hunting Grounds is slated for release sometime in 2020 for the PlayStation 4. There is no word yet on if this is coming to other consoles, but we’ll keep you posted as we hear more of this title right here on Dead Entertainment.
