Our First Real Look At The New Prey

During QuakeCon, Bethesda showed off the first gameplay footage of the new Prey, which has very little to do with the old Prey.

Bethesda re-announced Prey during E3 this year with an unsettling, Groundhog-Day-esque cinematic trailer. In the new trailer, which features actual gameplay, the game’s main character frantically fires at wispy black creatures (including SHADOW HEADCRABS) aboard the Talos 1 space station.


Combat appears to be going for the whole claustrophobic “don’t touch me don’t touch me don’t touch me” vibe. Aesthetically, it feels a bit like a modernized take on System Shock, which makes sense in light of Jason’s reporting on Prey’s reboot in May 2013, in which it was billed as a sort of spiritual successor to System Shock 2.

Arkane Austin is developing the game. It will be out next year.
