If you happen to own a PS4 or possess an anti-consumer Epic Games Store account, then you will be able to partake in the upcoming Predator: Hunting Grounds trial set for March 27th, 2020. According to IllFonic, PS4 participants can team up with others on PC with full cross-play support.
The trial in question won’t last long and will end on March 29th, 2020, meaning that it’s a weekend thing for those of you wanting to test the very game that triggered ResentEra due to there being a smaller female predator with noticeable boob armor that doesn’t “emasculate” male Predators.
According to the blog.us.playstation.com, the trial will feature a hot remote jungle level that harbors a significant presence of hostile guerrilla forces and operatives from the rogue Project Stargazer — a former government program now attempting to gain finances from selling alien tech.
As one would expect, both the Fireteam (the survivors) and Predator (hunter) will have to face-off against these dangerous enemies while attempting to complete any mission that happens to be available.
This means that the Fireteam is tasked with cutting off fuel to the local guerrillas and their elusive black market contact, while the Predator hunts anything that moves.
In addition to the above, the Fireteam has optional side-missions (which includes hunting the Predator) to accomplish as well as multiple random objectives that will pop up.
Moreover, there are four Fireteam classes in the full game. During the trial, though, you can only pick from three, consisting of Assault, Scout, and Support. As for the Predator, players can pick from the Hunter, Berserker, and Scout.
With all of that said, you can gather more info on the date and time for the trial by checking out the latest footage right here:
