Predator: Hunting Grounds update 1.08 adds Dutch DLC and more

Illfonic have released a new patch for Predator: Hunting Grounds which includes various improvements and fixes while introducing Dutch as a new playable character.

The update is now live on both the PlayStation 4 and PC (via Epic Games Store) versions of the asymmetric multiplayer shooter. Patch 1.08 comes with a meaty log of upgrades you can read in the official change log below.

This comes in tandem with Predator’s first slice of paid post-launch DLC.

Illfonic have promised that more free and paid content is on the way.

Predator: Hunting Ground guides from TheSixthAxis


In our review of Predator: Hunting Grounds, we scored the game a decent 6/10, concluding:

Predator: Hunting Grounds is a decent multiplayer romp with just enough content and ideas to make it worthwhile. It’s a huge improvement over Ifflonic’s last game, Dead Alliance, and one that’s definitely pumped up thanks to having a popular license to lean on.
