Ghost Recon Wildlands is going to witness a unique event providing the players with a chance to battle the famous Predator and convert the hunter into the one who is hunted.
The new content was earlier teased by Ghost Recon Wildlands, and now a new announcement has been made regarding the free DLC stating that it will start on December 14. The Predator event will go on until early January, and the players will have the option to take the challenge themselves or involve friends. The Predator theme equipment will be accessible in the in-game store.
“From December 14 through early January, the Predator will bring its unique skills to a special challenge that sees players (solo or with up to four players in co-op) hunting the creature—and being hunted in return,” an announcement read. “Defeating the Predator will be no easy task, but if players manage to take it down, they will be rewarded with exclusive items, including the Predator mask, which features Predator vision. To help you fully embrace your inner hunter, the Predator Pack (available in the in-game store) introduces 15 new customization items inspired by the original movie, including weapons and a new close combat move.”
The player v player option in Ghost Recon Wildlands titled Ghost War will also feature a new soldier based on the lead character from the original film, Dutch.
The PvP mode in Ghost Recon Wildlands, Ghost War, will also be receiving a new soldier that’s inspired by the main character from the original movie, Dutch. Nouredine Abboud, the senior producer at Ubisoft, talked about their plan to feature the Predator into Ghost Recon Wildlands and how they managed to convert the original film’s grim atmosphere into the game.“The mission is built to recreate some of the tension felt by Dutch and his crew in the original Predator movie,” Abboud said. “You first discover hints about the Predator’s presence before actually getting to meet and fight him. Getting that feeling of being swallowed by the surrounding jungle was something we really wanted to convey. And of course, the music takes a big part in creating the tension.”
In response to a question about the challenge that players will face during their battle with the Predator Abboud stated that they certainly wanted to make it tougher and the team had “tweaked the gameplay to make sure this would be the most difficult fight players could find in Ghost Recon Wildlands, especially when you approach it solo.”
As far as the Predator’s final self-destruct assault is concerned, Abboud said that the players would have to themselves check whether that happens or not.
