Dutch returns to the jungle in Predator: Hunting Grounds

First details on new content coming 26th May

I think it is safe to say many of us have been experiencing launch day jitters, watching stats, making patches, and really just wanting to jump into the game with the community all the time. But we have never been happier than we are right now! Thank you to everyone who jumped into the hunt with us on launch day.

Today is probably one of the most exciting days for me personally. It is my birthday for one, and secondly, I get to talk about one of the biggest career highs of my life right here in this blog. I get to share with you what our first free update and first paid DLC are.

Predator: Hunting Grounds on PS4

We are bringing Dutch to Predator: Hunting Grounds. Yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger has reprised one of my favourite roles from childhood for this game. The game that IllFonic has developed out of a love for the ’87 Predator. To say my inner child cannot be contained is putting it mildly. Yes, I got to meet him, and yes, I think I kept my cool. We got to spend a day in sunny California recording with Arnold. And before you ask, Arnold truly is one of the nicest people I have met in my lifetime.

In order to make Predator: Hunting Grounds the game we envisioned it to be, it had to include Dutch’s story and bringing him back into the universe. We have created two different items for the community in order to do this. The first is a free update, available for all players who own the game. Players will be able to learn where Dutch has been all these years and hear his story in his own words through a series of voice tapes that you earn as you level up.

The second is a paid DLC pack where you can play as Dutch and get early access to the QR5 “Hammerhead” Rifle and Dutch’s Knife! (available free for all players later in June) Getting the future Dutch just right was so exciting for the entire team. Creating the details, working with our partners to make certain everything fit together perfectly in the universe, and of course working with the legend himself has been a dream come true. We cannot wait until you can get access to both the free update and the paid DLC on May 26!

Rest assured, the content doesn’t stop with Dutch. We have some really fun stuff in store for the community. We have both free updates and paid DLC coming in the months ahead that will keep you on your toes in the hunt and continue to make the game exciting for everyone.

With the free updates we plan to introduce new weapons, game modes, and more. We will share more as we get closer to each content drop. For the various paid DLC you will get access to more themed character packs. Dutch is just the beginning! Be sure to follow our socials and join the community forum at predator.illfonic.com. We will update in these channels as more information is ready to be shared. Now I need to get back into the game and practice my hunting skills because Dutch will be here on 26th May!

  • Where’s the weekly game post please? and also where is the Ion Fury is coming out this May 14th so can you upload the game for us to preload and pre-order easily as well? also so slowpoke Sony…

  • Great stuff right here

  • Paid DLC for a game riddled with bugs and matchmaking issues since launch, with very little comnmunication from the devs… Yeah, no thanks, deleted the game last week after queuing for a game for 34 minutes with no result. Won’t spend a dime on an Illfonic game ever again.

  • This game is so cool I can’t wait to play as Dutch.

  • This is what i want. I easily want to pay more for him as a DLC just to have Arnold as a character. He was the character i was waiting for since the release of this game. I hope his iconic lines like “get to the choppa” etc are also in the game. I can’t to play as him.
