Predator: Hunting Grounds now available on Steam

  • We are on Steam! Order Predator: Hunting Grounds on Steam today, April 29, 2021. To get all Steam players caught up, we will be offering a DLC Predator Package – all four Predator DLC skins and abilities: Viking, Samurai, Valkyrie, and City Hunter; plus early access to 3 additional masks and 6 war paints. (*This DLC package is available on all platforms this month as well, if you have been waiting to add to your Predator collection.) Lastly, good news, Steam players do not fret; our game is crossplay friendly and allows for crossplay invites. One thing to note, all progress in-game is stored on a per-platform basis and is non-transferable.
