Earlier this week we reported on a tantalising tease from Ubisoft which indicated that none other than Predator would be making its way to Ghost Recon Wildlands. Today, we can confirm that the rumours are true and that the Predator Challenge is available now!
Even better is that players can team up with 3 of their friends to take on the fearsome beast completely for free. The event is limited, concluding sometime in early January and offers players a chance to earn exclusive gear based on the 1987 action/horror classic. By killing the Predator, players can gain access to the Predator Mask which, of course, grants thermal vision.
For players who would rather not go toe to toe with a bona-fide killing machine the Predator Pack can be purchased from the in-game store. There are 15 customisation items in total, including weapons and a new close-up kill move.
The Ghost War PvP mode is also getting in on the action, with a Dutch-inspired character complete with his very own battle rage mode. Speaking about the unlikely collab, Ubisoft’s Nouredine Abboud said; “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 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 of our players!”
