IllFonic's latest multiplayer-only game, Predator: Hunting Grounds, was released a couple of days ago. The game has received favorable reviews and has found its market with the franchise's fanbase. Unfortunately, it’s not without its faults. Hunting Grounds is filled with game-breaking and frustrating bugs. It has not even been a complete week since its launch and the game is already receiving updates so that it can retain its player base.

Update 1.05 was released yesterday and it is solely focused on bug fixing. The patch fixed the bug where customization items will be marked as new no matter if you actually saw them or not. AI has been improved so it responds to gunfire and footsteps. Important objects that are needed to complete missions will now spawn as intended. UI issues in the Tutorial menu are fixed and stuck points in several maps have been removed. The patch also bought an overall improvement in matchmaking that should reduce the queue times. I know I'm glad that we don’t have to wait for 30 minutes to connect to a match.

Complete patch notes are mentioned below and on the official website.
