If you’ve been following Prey over the last couple of weeks, you know what to expect: Space, death and trippy new alien powers that somehow trigger a lingering presence that haunts your every move the more you make use of your weird new abilities. Sort of like the after-effect of an 8-pack of KFC Dunked Zinger Wings then.

What’s a first-person game without a few gadgets huh? Guns, tools and gizmos baby. That’s what I’m here for, and Prey doesn’t look like it’ll disappoint on the one front that my dormant Charlton Heston genes are craving. Here’s the latest trailer that shows off vanilla heads-up displays, menus (SO EXCITING) and useful household tools like a Greenpeace grenade that recycles everything within its radius back into atoms. Handy.

If you can’t watch the trailer above because your boss warned you about bringing your lust for firearms to the office, then here’s the rundown. You’ve got your usual reliable weapons at hand, such as an always handy monkey-wrench or the good ol’ shotgun. What really looks cool, is the Gelafoam Lattice Organism Obstructor Cannon. The GLOO Cannon for short, which looks like it takes a month to fill up with certain liquids because I’m a bit of a pervert.

It’s handy stuff that expands on contact and can make for some great hair gel in a pinch. Stealth or shotguns, the choice is yours in Prey as those little Typhon bastards creep up on your face. Personally I’ve always favoured a big twig and my trademark “HIT WITH STICK HIT WITH STICK” approach to warfare. It gets results every time. Sometimes it even works.

Prey will be out this May for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, debuting at a rather chill time in the industry.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    The pre-order digital goodies will probably pull in more people than it should.

    • Original Heretic

      It’s a trap! Do not, I repeat, do NOT pre-order!

      • HairyEwok

        I’ve been Admiral Ackbaring games for the past 3 years now.

        • Original Heretic

          Last game I pre-ordered was Fallout 4.
          And though it was fun, I still regret it.

          before that, ME3. No regrets there.

          Doubt I’ll ever do it again, though.
          Maybe Cyberpunk 2077. CR Projekt Red for the win!

          • HairyEwok

            Now that I think about it I haven’t actually ever bought a game before release, first day buys yes but never pre-order. Cyberpunk might be the first pre-order but even with CDPR and their reputation I’m still hesitant.

          • Original Heretic

            If it was anyone else but CDPR, I wouldn’t do it.
            But even if they somehow release a sub-standard game, you know they’re going to listen to their fans and make the necessary changes.
            Witcher 3, as good as it was on release, every patch they released for it just improved it into a sublime experience.
            I cannot see them suddenly doing something different with Cyberpunk.

  • Original Heretic

    This is looking waaay better than the first game of the same name.

  • MonsterCheddar

    I’m sooo gonna play this.

  • Deceased

    Been a while since my body has been THIS ready XD

  • Viking Of Science

    Is it just me, or are there like WAAYY to many trailers for Prey? I mean, I was on board after the first gameplay trailer, with the mug, don’t need any more trailers.
