Predator: Hunting Grounds To Get A Trial Weekend In March On PS4 And PC

The trial begins on March 27 and runs through March 29.

Developer Illfonic is running a trial weekend for its upcoming asymmetrical multiplayer shooter, Predator: Hunting Grounds. The trial kicks off on March 27 and runs through March 29, and will be open to Epic Games Store players and PS Plus members on PlayStation 4. There's also cross-play support.

The trial will be available to download on March 27 at 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET / 4 PM GMT. You'll be able to play solo as the Predator, or team up online with three others as part of a human Fireteam.

Late last year, Illfonic revealed some details about the various Predator classes you'll be able to play as in Hunting Grounds, including some of the deadly weapons you'll wield as the galaxy's premier killing machine. Now, the studio behind 2017's Friday the 13th has shed some light on what it's like to play as a gun-toting human.

Clearly, the odds are stacked against you, even if the numbers aren't. You're still armed to the teeth with state-of-the-art weapons and gear, but the Predator is a terrifying foe. Fireteam players are given a mission to complete beyond just surviving and must face off against AI opponents as they complete key objectives as well as fend off another player hunting them as the titular monster.

Illfonic promises plenty of suspense when the relentless Predator attacks, aiming to capture the thrill of the hunt that made the original 1987 film such a hit. A key part of the Fireteam experience is deciding how you're going to make it out of the jungle alive. Do you escape from the Predator or turn the tables and hunt it down, banding together and using your collective firepower to fend if off? Maybe you'll use the environment and AI enemies to your advantage, or divide and conquer. The tactics and strategy for survival are up to you.

Predator: Hunting Grounds is set for release on April 24 for PlayStation 4 and PC.

Glad it is cross-platform-play.

My friend is getting it on PS4, but my GF and I are getting it on our PCs. Now we can all play together.

However, my question is this, if we party together are we always only going to be the human soldiers? Can none of us ever play as the predator if we are partying together? So how would we be able to play against friends as the predator other than private rooms which may not even be filled all the way?!?
