Predator: Hunting Grounds is celebrating its one-year anniversary by launching on Steam. As of today, you can find the asymmetrical multiplayer shooter on Valve’s storefront for $29.99.
Launching on Steam isn’t the only big news for Hunting Grounds, as today also marks the release of Update 2.19. This includes a new Airstrip map, Predator Specializations, Custom Private Match modifiers, and more.
“To get all Steam players caught up, we will be offering a DLC Predator Package – all four Predator DLC skins and abilities: Viking, Samurai, Valkyrie, and City Hunter; plus early access to three additional masks and six war paints,” Charles Brungardt, CEO of Illfonic, said. “Lastly, good news, Steam players do not fret; our game is crossplay friendly and allows for crossplay invites. One thing to note, all progress in-game is stored on a per-platform basis and is non-transferable.”
Update 2.19 comes with a long list of changes, but the new Predator Specializations with specific perks are among the most exciting. These include:
- Hunter/Jungle Hunter: Tracker – Target isolation ignores mud.
- Scout: Ghost – Melee attacking from cloak deals additional damage.
- Berserker: Savage – Claiming restores health.
- Alpha: Wrathful – After receiving enemy fireteam damage from behind, your next melee attack deals increased damage.
- Elder: Vicious – Opponents, you bleed out faster while downed and take longer to revive.
June, August, and October will each see free content updates and paid DLC, so there’s a lot more to look forward to in 2021.
