You’ll find all of the details you need to know about Predator Hunting Grounds in this guide. We’ll be sure to update this page once any new details are released.

Predator Game Gameplay

We finally got to see so,e gameplay for Predator Hunting Grounds at gamescom 2019. It showed off some human vs human conflict, with the Predator hopping in to mess things up. It seems that squads of 4 will attempt to complete objectives while another player tries to stop them while playing as the Predator.

Predator Hunting Grounds Release Date

The release date for Predator: Hunting Grounds is April 24, 2020. This was revealed during the December 2019 State of Play presentation, alongsidea brand new trailer.

Predator Hunting Grounds Trailer

So far, we’ve only seen a short piece of Predator Hunting Grounds. An announcement trailer was released during the May 9 State of Play event, and it only showed off some cutscene action and concept art. You can watch the trailer above to see what the game is about.

Is Predator Hunting Grounds a PS4 Exclusive?

Given that Predator Hunting Grounds was announced at PlayStation State of Play, many have been wondering whether it will be making its way to other consoles. Unfortunately, it seems that all signs point to it being PS4-only, as it is being created in partnership with Sony Interactive Entertainment and Fox. In the past, this has been a solid indicator that a game is PS4 exclusive, and the marketing thus far has been PlayStation-only. We now know that the game will also make its way to PC platforms as well, thanks to a tweet from Sony.

Predator Hunting Grounds: Can You Play as The Predator?

We didn’t get much in the way of info as part of the Predator Hunting Grounds reveal trailer. Luckily, there was a blog post released shortly after on the PSBlog giving some more gameplay details. In the post, it is revealed that ‘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.’ This is very much in line with other games that developer Illfonic has worked on, namely Friday the 13th.

We’ll be adding more info as it is revealed. For now, stay tuned for future updates.
