Today, developer Arkane Studios Austin and publisher Bethesda released the official launch trailer for Prey, which is set to release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC this Friday on May 5th.
In Prey, you play as Morgan Yu (with the option to be male or female) who has awaken aboard Talos I: a space station orbiting the moon in the year 2032. You’re said to be the key subject of an experiment meant to alter humanity forever — but things have gone terribly wrong: as the station has been overrun by hostile aliens and you are now being hunted. As you dig into the dark secrets of Talos I and your own past, you will need to survive using tools, your wits, weapons, and mind-bending abilities. The fate of Talos I and everyone aboard is in your hands.
Here’s a rundown of the game’s key features:
Nothing is as it seems aboard Talos I. As Morgan Yu, set out to unravel the clues you’ve left behind for yourself, and discover the truth about your past. What role will you play in TranStar’s plans, and the mysterious threat ravaging the station?
Orbiting the Moon, the Talos I space station symbolizes the height of private space enterprise. Explore a lavish craft designed to reflect corporate luxury of the 1960s, and navigate interconnected, non-linear pathways built to hide countless secrets.
The shadowy extraterrestrial presence infesting Talos I is a living ecology bent on annihilating its prey. It’s up to you, one of the last remaining survivors aboard the station, to end the deadly attack of these haunting predators.
Customize your gameplay options and difficulty settings for an even more tailored adventure. You can make the experience more challenging (or easier) by changing a myriad of parameters related to stealth, movement and combat.
Play Your Way
Gain alien abilities to develop a distinct combination of powers and upgrade your unique skills. Craft increasingly useful items with the blueprints, gadgets and tools on board the station to overcome dangerous obstacles in your way. Survive unprecedented threats with your wits and ability to improvise.
Prey will cost $59.99 USD when it launches. Notably, if you preorder the game (which you still have two days to do) you will recieve the Cosmonaut Shotgun Pack, which includes a few new tools that are handy for when dealing with the different Typhon aboard the Talos I. Specifically, it comes with three Neuromods (which are used to acquire new abilities), two medkits, and a fabrication plan to create shotgun ammo, which is generally scarce. You’ll also receive the plans for a Yu family heirloom: the Margrave Shotgun.
