Predator: hunting grounds got a new life via a Prey DLC pack. Predator: hunting grounds was released in 2020 on PlayStation 4 and PC, but it received many mixed reviews. It takes the formula of games like Friday 13 and puts players in the shoes of a group of soldiers or a predator, giving you the chance to wield the advanced weaponry of the incredibly advanced alien warrior. Unfortunately, the game didn’t have the most supportive playerbase, likely due to the mixed response to the title. Currently there are only 190 players playing Predator: hunting grounds on Steam with an all-time high of 388 players, which is exceptionally low for any game.
Nevertheless, developer Illfonic is still supporting the game and has announced that they will be releasing new DLC to celebrate the release of Prey, a Predator prequel that released on Hulu earlier this month. Players will be able to obtain the Predator “Bone Mask” that is featured in the film which aligns with the overall look and themes of the film, moving away from the advanced tech of the sequels for something a little more primitive and grounded. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like players will be able to obtain the Predator’s Shield or any of the other gadgets featured in Prey, but it’s still a nice touch. At this time, Illfonic has not confirmed if this will be a paid item or if it will be free. There’s no firm release date, but it should arrive later in August.

Prey has been a huge hit so far, with many suggesting it’s one of, if not the best Predator movie to date. Of course, the bar was relatively low considering all the sequels to the original movie are mixed together. 20th Century Fox and Hulu have yet to announce a sequel, but it seems likely that we’ll get more Predator movies after the success of this film.
Prey is now streaming on Hulu. Do you plan to return to Predator: hunting grounds for the new Prey Downloadable content? Let me know in the comments or contact me Twitter @Cade_Under.
