Proving 2017 has at least one more surprise left in it, Ubisoft has just revealed a new special event for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, teasing a legendary cameo in the process: The Predator.
The Predator doesn’t feature overtly in the trailer but Ubisoft isn’t exactly being subtle about it. The skinned bodies, the iconic Predator growl, the font – it can only mean one thing: Ubisoft has cooked up a story and it’s about to drop us into the meatgrinder.
The upcoming event is called “The Hunt”, and Ubisoft will be unveiling a first glimpse of it at twitch.tv/ubisoft at noon EST on December 13 (9am PST, 5pm GMT, 4am AEST December 14). The Hunt will arrive in-game on December 14.
This isn’t the first time The Predator has popped up to guest star in a game this generation, either; he’s previously infiltrated Call of Duty: Ghosts back in 2014 and Mortal Kombat X in 2015.
