Predator: Hunting Grounds 1.08 Update Patch Notes | Arnold ‘Dutch’ DLC, Daily Challenges, and bug fixes

The Predator: Hunting Grounds 1.08 update patch notes bring in the most iconic action movie hero, Arnold Schwarzenegger, back into the series for the first time since the first film.

Unlike the Terminator in Mortal Kombat 11, Schwarzenegger voices an older Dutch, who players can now play as after they buy him for $6.99. Buying him also lets players use Dutch’s Knife, the QR5 “Hammerhead” Rifle, and few outfits and weapon skins early. All of these customization options will be free on June 12 for everyone.

And speaking of free, everyone will be able to listen to Dutch’s tapes that explain his backstory since the first film. You’ll get these as you level up and can listen to them in the menu. Thankfully, you don’t have to find these on the map while the Predator is hunting you like the OWLF Recordings. The Dutch tapes are in the Extras menu on the main menu under Collectibles. You’ll see the Dutch tapes under the OWLF Recordings.

This new update added two types of challenges: daily and weekly. Daily Challenges seemingly reset at 5 PM PT and Weekly Challenges reset on Sundays at 5 PM PT.

The first Daily Challenge rewards 5,000 Veritanium and the Weekly Challenge rewards 15,000 Veritanium.
