We've witnessed some interesting cross-overs in the gaming industry this year, most notably in the fighting game genre. Assassin's Creed mixing it up with Final Fantasy XV is another interesting mesh, but this new announcement from Ubisoft may take the cake. The Hunt is a special event coming to Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands and the shooter is crossing over with one of the most incredible hunters in fiction: Predator.
Predators are the fiction extraterrestrial specials in the science-fiction "Predator" franchise. The films have seen the aliens involved in a collection of different scenarios, including hunting the equally notable Xenomorphs from the Alien franchise, and their lore largely centers on hunting other species for sport.
Hunting other strong predators is a right-of-passage for the Predator species and this is a clever mashup on Ubisoft's part. There are no gameplay details known at this time, but it looks like the Ghosts may have caught the attention of the aliens with their work hunting down the cartel in Wildlands.
There may have been subtle hints of this crossover in the game all along, as you can witness me earning the "Predator" achievement in a Ghost War match below.
The trailer doesn't give us a detailed look at the version of the Predators we'll see in Ghost Recon WIldlands,

I might actually have to buy wildlands if this is the case.
Hmm this piques my interest. The predator mod was one of my favourite Quake 2 mods.
Uhhh...this seems awesome. Might get this game at Christmas if there's a sale.
Oh I want to play that. I like Wildlands but adding Predator hunts would be very cool.
