– ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW –

You’ll need to download and install patch 2.11 before you’re able to hop in a match of Predator: Hunting Grounds. Before you do, you might want to check out some of the new content and features the developers at Illfonic have added.

American football fans can draft in Dante “Beast Mode” Jefferson as a new playable character, voiced and modelled by Marshawn Lynch. Chucking money at this new premium DLC will also get you early access to the B34S-T, Predator’s first rocket launcher.

There’s free content for everyone with this newest update, too. Chief among these additions in a new Fireteam character class, the OWLF Operative. With their own thermal suit, this class has been designed to confront the Predator while also being tough to track.

The Operative will be unlocked at level 40. The PDL (Proximity Detector Launcher) weapon will pop at level 43, the EMP Mine at 80, the Predator’s Battle Axe at 85, and finally the Plasma Rifle Prototype at 135.

Illfonic have promised we’ll be seeing even more of Predator: Hunting Grounds in 2011. If you’re considering a romp through the jungle then make sure you read our Predator: Hunting Grounds review first. As for the latest patch notes you can grab them just below.
