Prey release date revealed

Being arguably the most alluring reveal on stage at Bethesda’s E3 press conference last year, I don’t think many were expecting Prey to release within the next year. But keeping in tow with what Bethesda pulled off with DOOM, the publisher is set to release their next signature franchise before the trade show kicks off again. Arkane Studios have revealed a new gameplay trailer for the horror/action hybrid, which gives a lot more insight into protagonist Morgan Yu.

Yu seems to have found himself in the middle of some alien experimentation, with the other humans aboard the Talos I space station using this opportunity to have all sorts of fun with the black, goo-like creatures they’ve captured on-board. Of course things like this usually don’t end well, and soon Yu is forced to exterminate the threat on-board before the station lands back on Earth. All that experimentation has had lasting effects on Yu, which bodes well for your gameplay choices within the title.

Like turning into a coffee cup, for example.

Bethesda has focused heavily on some of the most interesting parts of Prey’s combat, which has Yu using an assortment of engineering like tools as weapons and various supernatural powers to engage, subdue and otherwise avoid enemy encounters. There’s a heavy influence from Arkane’s own Dishonored here, as well as some sprinkles of atmosphere that recall moments from BioShock and Dead Space in equal measure. The trailers so far show these working extremely well together, and there’s not long to wait to see if that holds true for the rest of the package.

      5 – 5 + 2 * 0 + 1 * 7
      *Runs

      • Let’s apply rules

        5-5+[2(0)]+[1(7)]
        5-5+0+7
        …….

        I hate you

        • Hammersteyn

          more than pineapple one pizza?
          XD

          • yes

          • Lu

            What’s the deal with 7?

          • *pours neat Vodka*

            You see, it all started with this competition

          • *Back in 2014

          • WHich if you added it together 2+0+1+4 is 7.

            There was this competition *Takes big gulp of Vodka*
            I was set to be the favourite to win it. I commented for weeks. Ranking up my comment counts.

          • Even though non of that even matters to the RNG gods of Random.org

          • The playstation was there everywhere I looked. Every article seemed to have something to do with a playstation.
            I wanted it. I needed it

          • Lu

            Ah and I take it you were no. 7 on the random.org list?

          • *tears start forming*
            Yes, I was 7th. But that was only the beginning
            *small shudder. Distant look*
            *Another big gulp of Vodka finishes the glass. I pour another*

          • Maybe we will forget next year…

          • Patterns started to show. It was subtle at first. Perhaps even funny.
            I’d be 7th on a comment thread. I’d have 7 unread notifications.

            But then I started typing 7 worded sentences. Random things would start to add up to 7 (As you see above). It hasn’t stopped since

          • Lu

            Hahaha that’s some number 23 shit right there.

          • You have no idea

          • Lu

            My name has 7 letters…….

          • Don’t…..

          • Lu

            Haha you are possibly cursed.

          • So now you know the story of 7

          • Lu

            This is what I love about this community. Everyone has a weird quirk, that everyone else uses against them.
