Don’t look now, but he’s bock, er, back.
The Governator, Arnold Schwarzenegger, has returned to one of his iconic horror roles–as he voices Dutch of Predator fame–in the new video game Predator: Hunting Grounds, according to MovieWeb.com.
The Dutch downloadable content (DLC) and update for the game–recently unveiled by Sony and Illfonic–will be available for players starting May 26. As of this writing, the game is available only on Microsoft Windows and Sony PlayStation 4.
Jared Gerritzen, Illfonic Chief Creative Officer, said it was important to highlight Dutch–and, of course, Arnold himself–in this new game. “In order to make Predator: Hunting Grounds the game we envisioned it to be,” he said, “it had to include Dutch’s story and bring him back into the universe.”
This new game offers a free update for all players who already own the game, a feature that will add a series of audio tapes players can collect as they level up.
With these unlockable tapes, as Gerritzen explained, players “will be able to learn where Dutch has been all these years and hear his story in his own words.”
This is similar to another Illfonic project, Friday the 13th: The Game, which includes “Pamela Tapes” and “Tommy Tapes” that allow players to expand on the Friday the 13th scenario.
Buying this DLC will afford players early access to the QR5 “Hammerhead” Rifle and “Dutch’s Knife” before all players can get them in June.
These details were important to the developers, Gerritzen added. “Working with our partners to make certain everything fit together perfectly in the universe–and, of course, working with the legend himself–has been a dream come true,” he said.
Since Dutch did not appear in the Predator movie sequels, this game will give players a chance to see what happened to the character.
