Arnold Schwarzenegger is coming to Predator: Hunting Grounds as DLC later this month.
Announced today on PlayStation.Blog, this paid DLC arrives on May 26 and will see Schwarzenegger’s Dutch character from the original 1987 Predator movie added to the game. Considering Predator: Hunting Grounds is a game based on the universe of that movie, Dutch joining in on the hunt only makes sense.
You can check out what Dutch will look like in the game below.
“Yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger has reprised one of my favorite roles from childhood for this game,” IllFonic Chief Creative Officer Jared Gerritzen said. “We got to spend a day in sunny California recording with Arnold.”
As indicated by Gerritzen, Schwarzenegger himself returned to the role to voice lines for Dutch. In order to introduce Dutch into the game, IllFonic will add cassettes to the game for players to earn that allows them to “learn where Dutch has been all these years and hear his story in his own words through a series of voice tapes that you earn as you level up.”
When the DLC is released on May 26, players will get access to the Dutch character and the QR5 “Hammerhead” Rifle, as well as Dutch’s knife. The rifle and knife will be made available to all players, free of charge, later in June.
The Dutch DLC pack is the first of at least four paid DLCs with the second coming in June, the third coming in July and the fourth in August. The blog post does not mention a price for this DLC.
