Check out the details here:
One of the secrets we have been keeping since announcing Predator:
Hunting Grounds has been the inclusion of the female Predator.
When we first came up with what this game would be, I knew we had to create
a world where this ultimate female warrior would exist too. We had fun
imagining her back-story which helped us create a fierce warrior that any gamer
will have fun playing. She is agile, fast, and relentless. She is a huntress
without fear and she thrives in the hunt. In the trailer we see her with a
weapon that IllFonic created, the Yautja Bow.
This is no ordinary bow, it deals massive damage to its prey and will pin
the enemy to walls and other structures at death. She has access to the entire
Predator arsenal as well.
Speaking of the Predator arsenal…this trailer was one of the hardest but
rewarding to make because we had so much to share about our Predators. We
wanted to be certain we conveyed that the Predator, male and female, is truly
the universe’s deadliest adversary.
As far as weapons go, the Predator has crazy off-world tech at its disposal.
Did you happen to catch the scene with the Smart Disc making multiple kills? It
is personally one of my favorites. We have been demonstrating the wrist blades
and plasma caster at events since August, but this trailer lets us show off
Like the bow and Smart Disc, the Combistick is another weapon that is super
deadly. In battle, the Combistick extends to become a spear both useful in
close combat or from a distance. In the trailer, there is the close combat
scene where the Predator impales an NPC and lifts him into the air on the
Combistick. This is exactly what one should expect when fighting a Predator
wielding this weapon.
In our game, we wanted to make sure players had a way to customize their own
Predator depending on how they want to hunt. On top of choosing your own armor
design, we created three Predator classes with different styles of play,
strengths and weaknesses to select from.
Play as a “Hunter” the balanced killer, the agile “Scout” that can quickly
stalk their prey, or the brutal “Berserker” that is strong and able to take
