Predator: Hunting Grounds is a new game from Friday the 13th: The Game’s developers

 

It seems that, when Sony were talking about a new game reveal in their State of Play stream, they meant Predator: Hunting Grounds. In development by Illfonic, who are best known for the similarly asymmetrical Friday the 13th: The Game, and in partnership with Fox (now part of Disney), it’s coming to PlayStation 4 in 2020.

Predator: Hunting Grounds is an online asymmetrical multiplayer game, looking like it will try to capture the feel of the original film (and not the rubbish sequels and spin-offs). It pits a team of human soldiers in a jungle setting against a Predator with gadgets like active camouflage and heat vision. Doesn’t exactly sound fair, does it?

We’ve seen quite a few games try this style of asymmetrical multiplayer in the last few years, from the ill fated Evolve to more recent, horror game themed efforts like Friday the 13th: The Game by Illfonic and Dead by Daylight. Will Predator eclipse them all?

  1. I want this to succed!
    I loved Friday the 13th it was amazing… had a bad start with poor servers and such, granted it was a low budget game they made but after a while it was amazing! I loved it (Big fan of Jason Voorhees)
    I hope that experience they had on Friday will be a smoother launch for Predator as I will buy it (Also a big fan aswell)
    Really do hope this will succed also when you said “Doesn’t exactly sound fair, does it?”
    Simply don’t arm yourself and have a dance off bro’! If the player decides to shoot with with a shoulder canon then aye it ain’t fair as I wasn’t armed! He would be NOT a true Predator fan!

  2. Not quite AvP but I’ll take it!
