All Articles: Prey (2017)

Xbox Store Today: Prey, Dreamfall Chapters, AFL Evolution, more

It’s almost time for the weekend, which means it’s also time for today’s Xbox Games Store update.

Bethesda and Arkane lead things off with Prey, their new first person shooter that doesn’t have anything to do with the 2006 shooter of the same name. Now available to download for the Xbox One, players will awaken on a space station overrun by hostile aliens who have a penchant for human experimentation.

Also available today is AFL Evolution, an Australian rules football sim; World to the West, Rain Games’s followup to the well-received Teslagrad; and Dreamfall Chapters, a brand new entry in the Longest Journey series.

More information about all these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. (more…)

Prey, Gnog, World to the West, more added to PlayStation Store

The month of May has belonged to Bethesda Softworks for a last few years, and it doesn’t look like they’re letting go anytime soon.

The publisher will bring Prey to the PS4 this week, and it’ll be available to download through the PlayStation Store on Friday, May 5. The first person shooter isn’t connected to Human Head’s Prey, but it does feature the same themes of malevolent aliens and human experimentation. Also available to download this Friday is World to the West, Rain Games’s followup to the well-received Teslagrad.

If you’re looking for something to play today, KO_OP has launched their “tactile 3D puzzle” Gnog for the PS4. It’s also compatible with PlayStation VR, so you can really get a feel for the game’s scary heads.

Finally today, Alex Rose Games will bring their “masocore” platformer Super Rude Bear Resurrection to the PS4. Players will die often as they rush through the game’s many stages, but luckily, “your previous bodies stack up and you can jump on them, push them around and use them as shields.”

On that happy note, you can find a complete rundown of all of this week’s new releases after the break. (more…)

New Retail Releases: Prey, Guardians of the Galaxy Season Pass Disc, FlatOut 4

We’ve got three new games for the last Retail Release Report in April 2017…

Even though the new Prey has nothing to do with Human Head’s bizarre first person shooter from 2006 or its canceled sequel, Bethesda will release a new entry in the franchise this week for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Players will assume the role of Morgan Yu, a crew member on the Talo I space station. The the aliens show up and humanity becomes the “prey” of the title.

Also also available on store shelves this week is the Season Pass Disc for Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy adaptation. Just in time for the theatrical opening of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, the PS4 and Xbox One disc will include the game’s first episode, Tangled Up In Blue, and downloadable access to all four upcoming episodes.

Finally this week, developer Kylotonn will bring back the destruction-heavy FlatOut franchise with FlatOut 4: Total Insanity for the PS4 and Xbox One.

That’s all for now, but we’ll be back soon with a look at this week’s new additions to the PlayStation Store, Xbox Games Store, and Nintendo eShop.

Prey will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on May 5

Publisher Bethesda Softworks and developer Arkane Studios have announced that Prey will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on May 5. Bethesda found a lot of success last May with the launch of id Software’s Doom, so it makes perfect sense they’d want to try again with another sci-fi shooter in a similar spot on the calendar.

Prey is completely unrelated to Human Head’s 2006 shooter for the PC and Xbox 360, which is also known as Prey. Instead, it’s been designed by Arkane as a complete re-imagining of the Prey name, though it does share a similar themes of alien control and human resistance. A newly-released gameplay trailer will show fans and newcomers alike a look at some of the changes the developer made to the formula.

Players who purchase Prey before its May 5th launch date will receive the Cosmonaut Shotgun Pack as a pre-order bonus. The DLC pack contains a “Family Heirloom” Margrave Shotgun and other equipment to fight the alien invaders including three Neuromods players can spend to acquire new abilities, two Medkits, a Fabrication Plan to create the Shotgun, a Starter Kit for building tools and weapons, and a “Unique Upgrade” to “help players preserve their limited resources.”

New Prey trailer introduces us to “Another Morgan Yu”

Bethesda and Arkane Austin recently released a new trailer for Prey, but it may look familiar to fans who previously viewed the QuakeCon 2016 trailer. But there’s a good reason for that.

Prey gives players the option to choose the main character’s gender, and while previous trailers depicted Morgan Yu as a man, this new trailer offers a glimpse at what the game will sound like if Morgan is a woman.

Prey takes place on a space station that has been overrun by a hostile alien life force, and it’ll be available next year for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
