Predator: Hunting Grounds by IllFonic is an asymmetrical online multiplayer shooter that has now been out since April. So what’s the general consensus for a game featuring one of the most feared and skilled hunters in the galaxy?

At this current moment in time, the reviews have been mixed. The game has a lot of fun elements, with being the Predator and hunting down soldiers being at the top of the list. Unfortunately, many feel the game is unfinished and lacks content that really starts becoming a problem during long sessions.

Although the game isn’t perfect, it’s far from a finished product. Illfonic is doing everything they can to address community concerns and provide content that gets the Predator fanbase excited.

Another update is on the way and this time, it’s introducing Arnold Schwarzenegger. He was already added in a previous update, but this version will be the one from the 1987 film that featured the Predator for the very first time on the silver screens.

That’s probably music to your ears if you grew up watching Dutch (played by Arnold) battle a technologically-advanced alien that has been stalking his fellow comrades for days. It comes as no surprise that Arnold will once again voice act for this version, giving his character added depth and intrigue.

It’s worth mentioning that this DLC will be paid. Those that shell out a bit of cash can look forward to this Dutch version as well as a new story starting September 1st. Additionally, players will gain access to a Mercenary gun.

It’s unique in that it has a grenade launcher at the bottom. So after firing off some rounds with the top portion, you can start blasting away for even more damage using the grenade launcher.  The paid DLC seems like a pretty good value all things considered.

Predator: Hunting Grounds hasn’t had the smoothest launch, but the developer is trying to fix major issues as quickly as possible. They’re also hosting another free play weekend starting August 28th. It will run until the 30th.

So if you haven’t had the chance to check out the lethal skills of the Predator or team collaboration on the soldier side, this weekend is your chance.

It’s good to see IllFonic not abandoning ship just because gameplay and other elements haven’t been perfect. They want this online multiplayer experience to really thrive and it just might if they continue to focus on making impactful adjustments.
