The female Predator in Hunting Grounds sucks and is significantly worse than how female Predators are in novels.

Well, a new Hunting Grounds trailer came out today for State of Play and they showed off a new female Predator design. Cool, right?

Wrong. Why? Because female Predators in novelisations are so much damn cooler. This tweet sums it up.

Female Predators are so damn huge and buff that they emmasculate male Predators and make them insecure. Why didn't we get that?

OP and that Twitter user might be the only two people on earth to notice this. Kudos.

Unless they're the same person.

Can we talk about how bad that character design is?

"We want to have a female predator"
'Were the other ones male? I never really thought about predator gender before'
'Yes, they were male. So I'm thinking this one will look just lie them but just have giant tits,'

Because non-cannonical novelisation of the Aliens vs Predator comic. If they ever showed up in a movie maybe things would be different. Hell this is the first i've even heard of the book. It does sound cool however.

As someone who has read a lot of Predator books, I'm also irritated. Felt the same way as how they did Bernie in Gears of War. She was supposed to be as big as a Boomer, but they turned her into a skinny witch instead. I wanted a truck!

It's a pretty lazy design revision, but as the tweet specifies - the other take on female Predators is non-canonical. I wouldn't even expect the dev team to know about them.

I almost expected them to add eyelashes and a red bow.

Okay wait

Is that "lady predator" in the tweet real? With the sexy midriff, narrow waist and boobie armour?

Please tell me this is satire...

Never knew that about female predator, pretty cool. They’ll fix it as long as it doesn’t ruin the gameplay which it shouldn’t, maybe stealth stuff? Fans just have to make enough noise.

That design is so bad holy shit. And I guess they didn't put the other Female Predador design because insecurity is a trait male Predators and gamers share...

Well to be fair the male predator pretty much wear the same thing, it's just as stupid.
It's basically just a gender swapped Predator if you look closer.

Predator's armor design always feels a bit weird & sexual to me, this one even have a tine dick armor plate...yeah I wish I can unseen that.

If it HAD to have breasts, they should have done some weird and unique thing because I don't see the Predators as mammals.
