If you’ve been a fan of the Predator movies over the years, you’re probably ecstatic for the upcoming Predator: Hunting Grounds video game by IllFonic. So far, it seems like one of the best Predator games to date. You get to play as a Yautja — an elite hunting species — or part of a group of soldiers. It’s survival of the fittest and the party that plays their cards right will be victorious.

We’ve been treated to a couple of teaser trailers showing some gameplay and early visuals. Now, we have a better breakdown of the adversary position. It comes as no surprise that playing as a Predator looks downright amazing. The recent trailer gives us a brief refresher on the different classes of Yaujta players will get to choose from if they’re selected to take on the role of the adversary.

Right out of the gate, the classes seem pretty varied. We have the Hunter, Berserker, and Scout. Each possess a unique set of skills. For instance, the Scout is extremely fast and hard to pin down in the trees. He seems like the perfect class if you like strategy and keeping a distance.

Then if you want to go in for some close quarters combat, the Berserker class is perfect because of its enhanced strength. However, if you want to take a more well-grounded approach to combat, the Hunter is the right choice. There’s a class for every type of combat strategy.

After selecting your class, you’ll get to equip your Yautja with a weapon. Probably the most popular out of the gate will be the canon blaster. Like in the movies and comics, it shoots a powerful laser projectile at opponents. It looks like the perfect weapon to use for long-range attacks.

If you want to get a little up close and personal with your attacks, then the staff will be your best bet. It can inflict a ton of damage and even pierce through soldiers. We also have throwing discs and a futuristic bow and arrow. IllFonic has given you a lot of ways to approach each hunt. You can bet that everyone will want to be placed in the adversary position right out of the gate.

Never before has a Predator game showed this much promise. It’s still a little too early to make any bold predictions with this title’s commercial success, but all signs are pointing toward an amazing hunting experience between man and Yautja.
