Ghost Recon Wildlands' upcoming event The Hunt features the mother of all extra terrestrial hunters.

In a new teaser trailer released by Ubisoft, several cartel soldiers shoot wildly into the jungle as they are picked off by an unseen enemy with the recon team's helicopter flying over head. This continues until one member is left, strung up to the top of a tree and brought face to face with the skinned corpses of his comrades. He lets out a scream before the unseen attacker sinks a blade into him. The trailer ends as the digital symbols from the Predator films crawl across the screen, revealing the December 14 launch date of the event. 

The Hunt is free to play with a first look available on December 13 at twitch.tv/ubisoft. It also comes alongside the second Ghost War update for the game's online competitive multiplayer, which includes the new Pathfinder class, ranked gameplay and new maps for the elimination and uplink game modes.

Released March 7, 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, Ghost Recon: Wildlands is boasted as Ubisoft's biggest open world game to date. Ubisoft has since provided regular updates to the game's multiplayer, with the Ghost war updates providing new content free of charge.
