Prey is one of those games I never got around to playing, and I was always fixated on the trailer for the second game which never saw the light of day. Seeing it from the perspective of a passenger on an airplane before aliens started appearing in the cabin, I found it so spooky, and I wanted more. Until it was canceled.
Now we have Arkane Studios, the award-winning creators of the 2012 ‘Game of the Year’, Dishonored bringing Prey back again, not as a sequel, but as a re-imagining. Set in 2034, the character ‘Morgan’ foresees danger in the depth of space, and a year later, it looks like he was correct. What follows is something that almost resembles Half Life, which isn’t a bad thing either.
“In Prey, you are the first human enhanced with alien powers aboard a desolate space station under assault. Improvise and innovate in order to survive as you search for answers. Prey is a bold new story set in a dangerous universe.”
Someone is going to have to die. Will it be you?
Prey is set for a 2017 release.
