Players of Ubisoft’s Ghost Recon Wildlands the open world tactical shooter, will face off against the Predator in an all new special event running from December 14th all the way to early January.
“At Ubisoft Paris, we have been fans of the Predator for a long time and are thrilled to bring such an iconic character to our game” said Ubisoft senior producer Nouredine Abboud in a statement. “The challenge is full of references to the original Predator movie, and we cannot wait to see the reaction of our players!”
The new content will appear as a solo or co-op (upto four players) campaign, and while beating it will be difficult, players will receive exclusive items such as a mask with Predator vision after beating it. There is also a Predator Pack available for purchase on the store which includes 15 new customized items, including movie inspired weapons and a close combat move. Additionally, Ghost War PvP mode will get a new soldier inspired by the movie’s protagonist Dutch himself, who will be able to go into a “battle rage” berserk mode.
Abboud said that the free mission is meant to recreate the tension of the original film. You will be seeing hints of the alien’s presence long before you encounter him. “Getting that feeling of being swallowed by the surrounding jungle was something we really wanted to convey,” he said in a blog post.
