Prey 2017 (Microsoft Windows, Playstation 4, Xbox One)
Prey looks set to be one of the biggest releases this May and a return from the sci-fi shooter, being the second in the series. But is it going to be worth the return trip?
While we won’t know for sure until release, we do know a few things, both from the original game as well as from previews and interviews.
The player is Morgan Yu, a human aboard a space station with numerous alien baddies, which is the very same setting as the original.
Players will be able to select certain attributes of Yu, including gender. This is big difference to the original which had a strict story and player character arc to play through. Perhaps this is a hint that the game will be more open ended, especially considering it will have RPG elements.
The aliens have an array of different powers that the player-character can equip themselves, another hint at how the RPG mechanics might come into play.
