Bethesda presented the first glimpse of the Prey (2017) video game at its E3 press conference. Expected to be released in 2017 for the PC and consoles, the new Prey game will be a complete reboot of the series, with a different plot and different gameplay mechanics.
As you may know, the original Prey game was launched in 2006 by Human Head Studios. Bethesda bought the Prey rights in 2009, we've been hearing about a Prey 2 for almost a decade now and a previous version of the sequel got cancelled in 2014 as it didn't meet quality expectations. Now the game is back on track and the reveal trailer definitely looks promising.
Arkane Studios, the team behind the critically acclaimed Dishonored series, is bringing their unique vision to Prey, a first-person sci-fi action game that reimagines the franchise from the ground up… with an added psychological twist.
You are Morgan Yu, the subject of morally dubious experiments designed to improve the human race. You awaken aboard the Talos 1 in the year 2032 and must uncover the secrets hiding in the depths of the space station while being hunted by the mysterious alien force that has taken over. You’ll have to rely on the tools you find on the station – along with your wits, weapons and mind-bending abilities – to combat the growing threat and, hopefully, survive. Get your first look at Prey in the cinematic reveal trailer.
Prey will be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2017.
