What is Prey?


At E3 2016 Bethesda was not very clear about what exactly Prey is. Sadly Prey is not in any way linked to the original Prey, with the new game acting as a standalone experience. Below is a quote from Arcane Studios' Creative Director, Raphael Colantonio, confirming that Prey is a new IP based on an existing name. 


 Prey is not a sequel, it's not a remake, it has no tie with the original


In Prey, you will play the part of Morgan, a person (player chooses gender) who encounters strange aliens on in a large space station.

Here Morgan will interact with this game world, eventually finding weapons or learning some of the alien's abilities to combat the extraterrestrial threat. The entire game world will be simulated, meaning that no paths are predetermined for enemies, resulting in a unique experience for every player, especially after some of the players own choices come into play. 


     The E3 2016 announce trailer gave a glimpse into the world that Arkane is creating for Prey, but since its debut fans have been eager to understand what makes this both a Prey game and an Arkane game. In a candid chat at E3, Colantonio shared his insights into Arkane’s philosophy of game design, along with new details about Prey’s gameplay and story. 



Hopefully, we will learn more about Prey and see some actual gameplay for this interesting new title soon, as right now we as gamers still have very little about exactly how Pray will play.

Prey will release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One sometime in 2017.
