The new patch (1.16) is out now and features a slew of fixes for the game including fixes to multiple guns, Predator balances, and fire adjustments. The new patch also adds new paid DLC to the game, which sees the arrival of the highly anticipated City Hunter Predator. The new DLC also gives players early access to a variety of weapons including a new combistick for the City Hunter Predator, alongside a new Wrist Launcher.

The asymmetrical multiplayer released to a mixed bag of reviews all pretty much acknowledging its a great concept of a game and for the most part, it translates well. However, with that being said, the game is very flawed and needs a lot of balancing fixes. Thankfully, the developer IllFonic has been working hard to rectify these balancing issues and are creating a very smooth experience.

The Youtube team here at Gameranx has been diving deep into the game over the weekend and has put together their Predator: Hunting Grounds “Before You Buy” video which shows off straight up gameplay and thoughts on the newest games releasing.

Predator: Hunting Grounds is out now on PlayStation 4 and PC platforms.
