Ubisoft and FoxNext Games have partnered up to bring Predator inspired content to Ghost Recon Wildlands in celebration of the original film’s 30th anniversary.
Emerging from the challenge victorious sees players rewarded with exclusive items, including the Predator’s mask, which comes complete with heat vision capabilities.
The update also introduces a number of Predator inspired customisation options, from outfits seen in the film to the Predator’s wrist blades, and adds a new offensive class to the game’s PvP mode, Ghost War.
The new class is based on Schwarzenegger’s character from the movie, Dutch, and can be picked up either through the Ghost War Pass, the season pass or with prestige points.
“At Ubisoft Paris, we have been fans of the Predator movie for a long time and are thrilled to bring such an iconic character to our game,” said Nouredine Abboud, Senior Producer at Ubisoft. “The challenge is full of references to the original Predator movie and we cannot wait to see the reaction from our players.”

Bulkhead Interactive (The Turing Test) have released a new video for their upcoming Xbox One, PS4 and PC shooter, Battalion 1944, that gives us a behind-the-scenes-look at the development process.
“Throughout development it’s been so important for us to study every element of World War II,” said Howard Philpott, Creative Producer at Bulkhead Interactive.
“The main thing for us is to really understand the brutality and the visceral nature of the Second World War. We’ve been working so damn hard just to make sure we can capture the intensity of these weapons, and making that translate to a mouse and keyboard. It’s been a challenge, but I feel like we’ve really nailed it.”
Joe Brammer, Executive Producer and Director at Bulkhead Interactive, also talks in the video of how working on the game has had a positive influence on him after suffering a tragic loss in his personal life.
“With Battalion 1944, I’ve found a place where I can focus on something I really love doing,” he said. “Sitting down, reading the forum, and seeing the Battalion 1944 community coming together has been quite something. With the game now close to coming out, there are only good things on the horizon.”
Battalion 1944 will retail at £11.99/€14.99/$14.99, and while the Early Access price is less than the lowest tier on Kickstarter (where the game was successfully funded) Bulkhead will be rewarding backers with unique skins and “multiple cosmetic and vanity-focused loot crates” as a way of compensation.
