Fortnite’s latest crossover features the cinematic monster Predator, it has been revealed.
The alien hunter can be unlocked as part of the Chapter 2 Season 5 Battle Pass. By completing special Jungle Quests, players can unlock the Predator Outfit with built-in Bio-helmet Online Emote, as well as a unique Heat Vision Hunter Spray, Banner, and Emoticon.
The Predator movie franchise began back in 1987 with the blockbuster Arnold Schwarzenegger action flick of the same name. A sequel (without Arnie) followed in 1990, and since then we’ve seen two other (mostly unsuccessful) attempts to revive the series – one in 2010 and another in 2018. Another Predator film – helmed by Dan Trachtenberg – is currently in production.
Oh, and who could forget the crossover series Alien vs. Predator (2004) and Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (2007)? Well, us actually, because they weren’t particularly good.
Elsewhere, we’ve seen multiple video games based on the series, including Predator: Concrete Jungle (2005) for PS2 / Xbox and, more recently, Predator: Hunting Grounds. The Predator was also a downloadable character in Mortal Kombat X. The Aliens vs. Predator spin-off series has had its own line of games, too.
