The Prey franchise lives… but we are a long way from the original live-action trailer for Prey 2. But I suppose there’s a reason for that, as development on Prey 2 has completely shifted to Arkane Studios in Austin and they’ve decided to drop the numeral. So get ready for a second helping of Prey.
This time around, the action takes place in 2032 aboard the Talos 1, a deep space exploration vessel. But unfortunately, humanity isn’t in charge of the station and malevolent aliens have taken over in a bid to find out what makes us tick (just like the Strangers in Dark City). Thankfully, Morgan Yu is ready to fight back:
You are Morgan Yu, the subject of morally dubious experiments designed to improve the human race. You awaken aboard the Talos 1 in the year 2032 and must uncover the secrets hiding in the depths of the space station while being hunted by the mysterious alien force that has taken over. You’ll have to rely on the tools you find on the station – along with your wits, weapons, and mind-bending abilities – to combat the growing threat and, hopefully, survive.
Prey will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One sometime next year.
