Arnold Schwarzenegger Joins Predator: Hunting Grounds

Hollywood superstar Arnold Schwarzenegger will join as Major Dutch Schaefer for Predator: Hunting Grounds in May 26, 2020.

Recreating legacy of a classic space alien, online asymmetrical shooter title Predator: Hunting Grounds by developer IllFonic and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment has debuted back in April 2020 for Windows PC and PlayStation 4.

In upcoming new Hunting Grounds DLC, Austrian-American actor Arnold Schwarzenegger (Conan the Barbarian, The Terminator), who played Major Alan "Dutch" Schaefer in 1987 sci-fi horror film Predator, will reprise his role in action.

IllFonic was heavily inspired by '87 original Predator movie while working on Hunting Grounds and bringing back Arnold in one of his most iconic role is a truly wholesome experience for entire dev team as well as player community.

First free update is set to release on May 26, which will revive Dutch's story and integrate into in-game universe. Anyone who owns base game can learn where Dutch has been for all these years and hear it in voice tapes as you progress.

A paid DLC will follow on same day that gives you playable version of Dutch, alongside his early access to his QR5 "Hammerhead" Rifle and knife. All players will receive these weapons later in June for free though another monthly update.

Dutch has aged up over time and getting his image right by working with Arnold himself is no child's play. Since Schwarzenegger has never appeared in any related media franchise since 1987, these add-ons will be canon in Predator universe.

Though there are no details on whether Dutch will have any unique gameplay traits, it is safe to assume that Schwarzenegger will surely drop some of his catchy one liner jokes as he and his fellow Fireteam members give chase to lone Predator.

Predator: Hunting Grounds revealed its initial DLC roadmap as part of post-launch support with more to arrive soon. In coming months, IllFonic will be offering more free and paid content to players featuring game modes, weapons and more.
