It looks like good news abound all over as we have word that Predator: Hunting Grounds is going to be the next title out of IllFonic. That would be the team behind the asymmetric online multiplayer in the Friday The 13th universe. Now it looks like they are taking their talents to bring us another game in a similar model but in the universe of the Predator. Something that seems like it should have existed already, but for some reason, it has not. This could be why Sony and Fox have given the go-ahead to the team to bring their passion to the forefront and entertain us all again.
While Predator: Hunting Grounds is still in early development and poised to release early next year on the PS4, we do have a few small details outside of the reveal trailer below. In the game, we will take on the role of one of an elite fireteam sent out to go handle some missions. Something the team will need to actually do in the game. One other player will then take on the role of the titular Predator and hunt them down while they achieve their goals in their missions. It is sounding a lot like the first film with a bit of the gameplay we have seen in the team's last title. I am all on board for this, as we will have all the alien tech and agility at our disposal to do this.
