The Original Predator Hero Joining Predator: Hunting Grounds
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s likeness and voice will be joining Predator: Hunting Grounds, allowing fans to simulate their dream Predator PvP match. Schwarzenegger reprises his role as Dutch as part of the upcoming DLC for the multiplayer Predator title. The Dutch DLC is part of several installments coming to the game over time and fans who buy the DLC will also get early access to the QR5 “Hammerhead” Rifle and Dutch’s knife. Predator: Hunting Grounds is available for PS4 and PC now, with the DLC coming out on May 26th.
In a serendipitous shift in events going into the COVID-19 pandemic, Arnold Schwarzenegger actually recorded his lines for Predator: Hunting Grounds about a month before the states like California enacted shelter-in-place orders. It’s been over 30 years since Schwarzenegger has reprised his Predator role as Dutch but we’re looking forward to seeing the character within the Predator universe once again. Developer Illfonic will be bringing tons of free DLC to Predator: Hunting Grounds but it seems like the most die hard fans will want to put some money into this multiplayer title.
While the paid DLC gives gamers early access to the QR5 “Hammerhead” Rifle and Dutch’s knife, we aren’t sure how they’ll be balanced. We are definitely hoping that Predator: Hunting Grounds doesn’t become pay-to-win through DLC. Considering what a badass Dutch was in the original Predator movie, it’ll be fun to see him stalking the Predator in the jungles of Hunting Grounds later this month. Arnold Schwarzenegger has long been a part of the gaming universe but we’ve been waiting years to hear him say “get to the choppa!” and other Predator catch phrases he’ll doubtlessly spout in Predator: Hunting Grounds’ DLC.
