If you haven’t watched the Predator films before, you may be wondering what the hell this game is actually about.

Well, Predator is about a species known to hunt in order to collect trophies for sport (made up of their prey’s carcass), usually focusing on life forms that pose a threat to them.

Predator: Hunting Grounds is an asymmetrical multiplayer shooter.

This is essentially a 4 on 1 elimination game, where the Predator will be pitted against “elite fireteam”, made up of humans with various weapons.

Human players will experience the game in a first-person perspective, while the Predator plays in third-person.
