An unusual listing appeared on Steam for a version of Predator VR.
Predator, of course, is the 1987 action movie classic starring Arnold Schwarzenegger fighting against a camouflaged alien hunter. The movie spawned a series of sequels with last year’s The Predator scoring a 30% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox closed earlier this year, meaning new directions for many long-time Fox franchises.
The Steam page for Predator VR lists the publisher as FoxNextVR Studio (the group which previously published Crisis on the Planet of The Apes VR game last year) with development by Phosphor Studios. That’s the studio behind early zombie shooter The Brookhaven Experiment.
The Predator VR listing includes “in the future” as its release window with a trailer, screenshots and the following description of the game:
Predator VR drops you into the explosive action of the 1980’s blockbuster movie in the ultimate VR showdown between an overpowering Alien hunter and an elite soldier.
In the single player campaign, fight through intense action movie moments in a hunt through the jungles of Panama, and the claustrophobic maze of a Siberian secret base. Playing as an elite soldier, lead a squad of two NPCs and utilize an arsenal of deadly ballistics boasting the best of 1980s firepower including assault rifles, shotgun, .50 cal Desert Eagle and a chain gun to destroy The Predator.
As The Predator in Rampage Mode, hunt down your prey using advanced alien technology: thermal vision, cloaking, a plasmacaster cannon and blade gauntlets to impale enemies and rip out their spines.
In Multiplayer, get immersed in the hunt as a soldier or The Predator to find your target and take them down. Survival is up to you: will you be the hunter or the hunted?
