Developer Illfonic, best known for their work on the critically acclaimed asymmetrical multiplayer title, Friday the 13th: The Game, has announced a brand new title of the same vein, but this time it’s including the Predator!
It’s super exciting to see Illfonic back at work creating a new game, and I think the Predator concept works great for them. We know little details about the game which sound absolutely amazing.
Similar to Friday the 13th, one group of players will control the role of the soldiers where they must carry out certain missions — eliminating certain targets, collecting a special item, etc — while one player controls the Predator who is a stealthy acrobatic killing machine. The Predator will be on the hunt while the military tries to carry out their mission objective by either evading or killing the Predator in the process.

So how does Predator: Hunting Grounds play? We’re still pretty early in development – the game is due out next year – but I can give you some initial details about this competitive online multiplayer experience*.
For starters, we’re big fans of asymmetrical multiplayer experiences, and we’re building off our past successes in a whole new way with Predator: Hunting Grounds.
One group of players will control members of an elite Fireteam who pack state-of-the-art conventional firepower, from shotguns and SMGs to sniper rifles and more.
Meanwhile, one player will control the Predator: a stealthy, acrobatic killing machine bristling with exotic alien technology such as the infamous Plasmacaster.
As the Fireteam attempt to carry out paramilitary missions – annihilating bad guys and recovering important items – the Predator will be closing in, using its advanced vision mode to track and ambush its prey.
Creating an immersive world for the Predator universe has been so rewarding for our team. We’re massive fans of this IP, and it’s made us closely examine every aspect of the game to be certain we are staying true to the world. Fox has been an incredible part of this process.
Predator Hunting Grounds is set to release for the PS4 sometime in 2020. Are you excited to see developer Illfonic back in game development? Let us know in the comments below!
