It might be the tail end of Friday afternoon, but the Gamescom 2016 announcements are still slowly trickling out, covered in mansweat and currywurst. Word has reached us now of a new trailer for Arkane’s Prey reboot. Unlike the rest of the times we’ve been shown it though, this all gameplay footage this time around. We get a first look at some of the superpowers Morgan Yu can wield, like, uh, turning himself into a coffee cup.

From the looks of things he can transform himself into any object he can insane, even something as mundane as an ashtray or coffee cup. Someone he can move as a coffee cup though, allowing him to squeeze through small spaces which would otherwise be impassable.

We also get to see what appears to be some sort of sand gun. I have no other way to describe it really, but it looks awesome and I want one.

The more we see of Prey the more it appears to be an immersive sim in the vein of Deus Ex and BioShock, made even more pronounced by the Looking Glass Studios reference halfway through the vid. Promising stuff, let’s just hope Arkane can deliver.

Prey is out sometime in 2017 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Looks good, but it's Chris Avellone being involved that makes this a must buy for me.

This looks pretty nice. Reminds me of GMod.... with completely remade graphics. In space. :P

I agree, Prey 2 looked like "Boba Fett Simulator" which is great.

Lovely lovely console gameplay. Massive aliasing (space station in the distance all flickering like a firework) and lacking tesselation (the stone-weapon thing has a very angular nozzle). The game itself looks very interesting though!

I would absolutely love to be able to turn into a coffee cup at will, it might stop me for falling asleep while at work! :))
