    Illfonic making it, so my guess is it'll be multiplayer similar to their Friday the 13th game.

    Could be fun.

    It's made by the people that made the Friday the 13th game apparently. So that with predators and soldiers. And Sony money.

    I'd say so, yeah. The AvP 2 game from 2001 (the Monolith one) had a similar mode which pitted a team of colonial marines against a single Predator player, though I might be misremembering and it could actually have been a mod. It was good fun though, regardless.

    Latest Predator game I've played is Concrete Jungle. Surprisingly, I liked it.

    I'm not really up for a multiplayer only game though.

    I fucking loved that AVP2 game.

    Probably my favourite Alien game before Isolation.

    Made by the same people as Friday the 13th, so I expect the gameplay will be similar to the gameplay expectations of everyone else who's made this exact comment as if this hadn't been reported in all the coverage that prompted this thread in the first place and they were having an original thought.

    Unlock Dutch skin by pre-ordering! Feel like the original Sexual Tyrannosaurus with the Blane character pack! Customize your character or get a head start using new Predator Energy Gems, 5,600 (10% free!) for 59.99! Best value!

    edit: also even if this was faithful to the movie, the experience from a game play perspective would be pretty boring. The tension would be gone by the third match, and your sudden death from something you didn't see or know was there would probably just be frustrating. It's like a whole game based on how frustrated a player can get when sniped on a typical multiplayer FPS. I guess we'll see how it goes though, but I'm definitely not holding much hope.

    This looks like it could be fun. Probably naff. But MP can make it much better with friends.

    Do trial out now. Havenít played it yet. Predator is one of my favourite films. This wasnít on my radar to be honest, however just watched a few streams and it looks a lot of fun! Love how authentic it feels with all the sounds and music ripped straight from the films.

    I have, itís ok not sure itís much more than that, only played as the predator so far, was fun for now. I imagine playing as the marines or whatever is mega generic.
    Obviously +2 points if playing with friends, but that may only get you so far. Itís not bad bad, I mean f13th was rather enjoyable but the jank in that was part of the low budget horror vibe, this is more polished but is pretty rough looking and a bit clunky plus matchmaking is a bit long atm.

    Actually just played a full game as a marine. It's fucking awful.

    Jesus. I had no idea about this game, and then I saw I posted about it last year?! Just watching back some trailers - it looks terrible.

    There's enough there to see that it would probably work as a concept but it's so low budget and badly put together. The best I can say about it is the tree navigation when your a predator is kind of cool. Literally everything else is bad.

    This has all the hallmarks of a game that's dead on arrival. It really does look like the majority of the budget went on licensing :/

    I played the trial last night with a few people and quite enjoyed it. It's just not, in its current state, a £30 game though.

    If it was ~£15 I'd probably be all over it, but unless the full game has a lot more meat on the bone I think it'll be dead on arrival.

    Friday 13th was similar (I think that was released at £30 too). Should have gone the Dead by Daylight route to try and build playerbase.

    Is this any good now? I really fancy it even though I know I'l play it a couple of evening and never play it again, and even at its £25 sale price I'm wondering if it's worth it. I've watched some streams and it looks fine though a bit uninspiring.

    Actually screw it, I'm buying it anyway because the answers will either be "It's good" and I'll buy it, or "it's bad" and I'll take it as a personal challenge to enjoy it in some way regardless of quality.

    I'd have thought the most relevant question to ask about a game like this, which is multiplayer only but had a poor reception, is "can you still get a game?" So many of these become functionally unplayable not long after launch, because the player-base evaporates.
