During its latest episode of State of Play, Sony unveiled Predator: Hunting Grounds, a new asymmetrical online multiplayer shooter from Friday the 13th developer IllFonic.
The game sees one group of players controlling an elite fireteam, while the other becomes the Predator. The fireteam will have to complete paramilitary missions and recover items as the Predator closes in.
“Once we decided on Predator, it was clear this needed to be a shooter that had to look and feel authentic,” IllFonic CEO Charles Brungardt wrote on the PlayStation Blog. “Our team’s passion for Predator helped us launch the partnership with Sony Interactive Entertainment and Fox. Not only do these powerhouses believe in our vision, which has made this a dream project, they understand what we want to create.
“They have given us so much to work with and are empowering us to create something new for fans, while expanding the lore of the Predator. Having that quality bar raised by our partners has been a great driver for creating an amazing game.”
Predator: Hunting Grounds is due to release for PlayStation 4 in 2020.
