Prey 2 got re-revealed! Only now, umm, it’s just called Prey, exactly like Prey was called back in 2006. That noise right there is the sound of a thousand databases sighing at the prospect of an identically named game. Anyway, original developer Human Head Studios was stripped of its duties, and a new Arkane studio based in Texas has taken up the reins. Prey is almost unrecognisable from the game we saw at E3 four years ago, scrapping the open-world alien city in favour of a space station employee who becomes the subject of experiments in human evolution.
Only things don’t quite go to plan. In the midst of all this crazy experimenting, Morgan Yu’s eye is going steadily more bloodshot as he repeats each day, groundhog day-style, before the ship he’s on is boarded by terrifying ethereal aliens. Yu must use an array of weaponry and mind-bending abilities to survive on Talos.
Prey is tentatively scheduled for 2017, when it’ll arrive for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Expect to see plenty more at QuakeCon later this year.
