Bethesda’s knack for publishing awesome looking games is getting a little out of hand now. A deeper peek at Arkane Studios Austin’s Prey reboot hints an incredibly promising first-person shooter, one with a clear lineage to immersive sims such as BioShock, System Shock and Deus Ex.

Protagonist Morgan Yu has access to an array of upgradeable powers and gear, each providing different combat elements and yet also allowing him or her to navigate around the environment in new and unique ways. The foam gun in particular looks like an indispensable armament. Fire it out and it instantly hardens, letting Morgan building their own pathways to previously inaccessible locations.

Exploring the Talus 1 space station in Prey looks like it’s going to be fantastic. I’m not only getting System Shock vibes but also a whiff of Metroid Prime. Could Arkane and Bethesda have another smash hit on their hands?

It does look like the System Shock successor we need, but I'd rather have the Prey successor we need.
F*** me, right?

"immersive sims such as BioShock, System Shock and Deus Ex."


Why list Bioshock? It's never made sense, as Bioshock is literally a derivative of System Shock 2, much like this. I see them listed like that all the time, and it's puzzling.

Because Bioshock is a masterpiece my friend. Derivative of System Shock or not.

This new Prey looks promising but original Prey deserved a sequel..

I would rather it be a true successor to the original Prey. That game was really good, and needed a true sequel.
