Prey Gets New Trailer Focusing on Weapons and Power Combos

[embedded content] Bethesda has released a new trailer (above) for Arkane Studios’ upcoming shooter, Prey, focusing on the game’s weapons and power combos. The game equips players with “a host of incredible powers” to fight off an alien invasion and save humanity. In a press release, the publisher wrote: With 24 human upgrades and 20 unique alien powers to choose from (plus all of their upgrades), no two Morgans will be the same, and no two players will have the same experiences in Prey.  Along with the human abilities like Hacking, Leverage, Repair, and Gunsmith – all of which enhance Morgan’s innate strengths – you will have access to three distinct trees of Typhon-based abilities. Of course, there’s some risk when rewarding yourself with these amazing alien abilities. As you install alien powers, the turrets on the station will view you as a hostile entity, and you will increasingly run the risk of being targeted and hunted by the massive Nightmare Typhon. But with (sometimes literally) mind-bending abilities like these, we’ve got to say the risk is definitely worth it. Prey releases worldwide on May 5 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Prey Gets New Video Centered Around Protagonist Morgan Yu

Watch the First 35 Minutes of Prey Right Here, Right Now

[embedded content] In case seeing what you’ll be going up against in Prey wasn’t enough in yesterday’s trailer, Bethesda has given everyone a look at the action game’s first 35 minutes. Needless to say, if you don’t want anything at all spoiled for you, or just want everything to be fresh when you boot the game up, then don’t want the video above. While there are a few story elements shown, it’s not anything major (understandably) that’ll spoil the game completely. It all starts with Morgan’s first day on the job. Then comes the creeping suspicion that things may not be what they appear. Then all hell breaks loose. Morgan Yu’s world comes crashing down in the first half-hour of Prey and we’ve got the full intro to the game right here. You find yourself trapped in space, being hunted by an enemy you don’t understand, and missing significant chunks of your memory. Before you get your hands on your powerful alien abilities – hell, before you even get your hands on a weapon – your life is in danger. You’ll need to use your wits and follow the mysterious January’s instructions if you want to survive the opening moments…

Latest Prey Trailer Showcases the Mimic Matter Ability

[embedded content] In a press release, Bethesda has shot out a new Prey trailer titled “Mimic Madness.” In it, we see one of the game’s abilities, the “Mimic Matter,” shown off to great effect. When you awaken aboard the Talos I space station, you that find you are the key subject of an experiment meant to alter humanity forever – but things have gone terribly wrong. Talos I has been overrun by an alien force, and you must stop the Typhon threat from destroying humanity. As Morgan Yu, and mankind’s last hope, fend off the alien infestation armed with the tools found on the station, your wits, weapons, and mind-bending abilities. One of the first alien powers you’ll learn is Mimic Matter. Acquired from the diminutive (and aptly named) Mimic Typhon, this power allows you to take the form of just about any appropriately sized object aboard Talos I. You’ll start small – a coffee mug, a teapot, a lamp, a banana – but as you level up this ability, you’ll soon be able to mimic more complex objects, including an impressive array of security turrets and Operator robots.  Developed by Arkane Studios (Dishonored), Prey is set for READ FULL…
