Hello, my fellow gamers!
First question… Do you like scary games?
Well, I do… and by that I mean I absolutely love them! Don’t ask me why but… I love the feeling of waiting for the next jump scare and sitting on the edge of my seat having no clue what will happen next. It’s almost like facing your fears without actually… facing your fears.. lol. We all get that “bring it on” attitude when were in game mode, so it’s a perfect fit for me.
I have actually been waiting for the release of Prey for some time now. The last creepy game I so eagerly waited for was Until Dawn…
MAN, I love that game!
Seriously, if you haven’t played it… and you like scary games… make sure it’s next on your list!
However… I have no doubt I will like Prey equally as much. Prey brings us a new age sort of horror game… With options that give you the chance to change the course of the game from deciding how much of your own humanity you are willing to sacrifice to become stronger to how you treat the other survivors.
Keep in mind these choices can have some very scary consequences, and they are not based on “good” or “bad” but based on your natural…very human characteristics. You also have the choice of making the main character male or female.
It’s awesome to be able to customize your gaming experience so much… Don’t you think?
The due date for this mind altering game is May 5th, 2017. Soooo… I won’t have to wait for much longer… Yayyy!! So glad this one has finally made it mainstream and is ready to hit our consoles… Finally.
It’s a first person shooter, Sci-Fi story developed by Arkane Studios and published Bethesda Softworks. Arkane’s Prey is giving the original classic from 2006, designed by Human Head Studios, a whole new image. The game is compatible with Microsoft Windows, Xbox One & PlayStation 4.
Our main character is Morgan Yu, a scientist studying alien life forms known as “Typhon” while living aboard the Talos I. His/her research into the “Typhons” lead Yu to another discovery… the discovery of “neuromods.” These “neuromods” are able to transfer alien power to humans. This could be extremely helpful but…The creepy thing is… the “neuromods” are transferred through the eyes… yeah that’s gotta be rough, even to watch. As demonstrated in one of the trailers below.
Players are able to use a wide variety of weapons to fight off the aliens while exploring the Talos and… missions unlock keys and other specific items that unlock the ship a section at a time. Prey is set in the year 2032.
In this universe, John F. Kennedy was never assassinated, and The Kennedy Space Center went on to thrive during its 69 years of space exploration. Kennedy’s space centers still orbit in space circling the Earth’s moon. While aboard this station Morgan Yu finds purpose in his/her work.
Arkane shared more about Prey with Game Informer. According to this conversation, it seems that Prey is a pretty dark game as you would probably assume, considering what you have read thus far. The Space Station is quickly cleared out except for a whole lot of furious aliens… the “Typhons.” They are able to camouflage themselves, taking on the exact appearance of everyday objects. Obviously, the objective here will be to survive but, returning to Earth may end up to be a very high priority as well.
As I mentioned before surviving is key but so is the need to keep evolving. Players must focus on the fact that they are aboard a ship that was not meant for battle, especially not a battle such as this. Weapons are more than scarce, and you will be forced to use some very unique objects, resulting in some very crude alien or human death scenes.
Also, as I mentioned before… taking on alien powers is a definite possibility. This is how the evolving takes place. Upgrading your powers is essential. To do this, you must find those “neuromods” so you can learn how to use the Typhons abilities. Devices containing the “neaurmods” are scattered within the ship, and these are the devices that require the injection through the eyes…
Now with this being a first person view sort of game, this could be a very disturbing experience…game or no game..it will be uncomfortable to watch.
On certain missions, you are forced to explore outside the craft in a space suit using thrusters to make your way around, always monitoring your oxygen levels. Not too much more has been said of the “outdoor” gameplay.
Occasionally you will run into human survivors, though they are rare. They can either be killed by the aliens, or by you but… how it happens can actually alter your existence. Though their survival isn’t essential to your game, it will just keep moving forward.
I don’t know about you but, I will be counting down the days till I can play Prey. This game is right up my alley. I have put together a couple trailers so you can decide if it’s right up yours too…lol.
