Sony has announced during their latest State of Play broadcast that developer IllFonic, who released the Friday the 13th multiplayer survival game, is working on a new title from the Predator universe.
Predator: Hunting Grounds, which is still very early in development, appears to be functionally similar to Friday the 13th. From the PlayStation.Blog:
From the PlayStation.Blog:
“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.“
Sounds like a neat and novel idea, and hopefully they don’t completely screw it up. The original Predator with AHNOLD is one of my absolute favorite movies and I would love to see a modern game give it some love.
