Arkane Studios' sort-of spiritual successor to System Shock, Prey, that has just about nothing in common with the game by the same name from 2006, is out today. The game is priced at $59.99 and is available on Steam, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Here's a short description:
The alien forces have escaped containment, so step into your TranStar uniform, board Talos I, and prepare to fight the invasion.
“Prey is set in an immersive world that layers in shooter and RPG elements. Players can craft their own playstyle based on gameplay choices, while incorporating alien abilities and unique skills,” said Creative Director Raphael Colantonio. “We’re excited to show off the sci-fi world of Prey to players worldwide.”
When you awaken aboard the Talos I space station, you find that 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 that’s now hunting down any surviving crew members, including you. As mankind’s last hope, fend off the alien infestation armed with the tools found on the station, your wits, weapons, and mind-bending abilities. You must stop the Typhon threat from destroying humanity - should these creatures reach Earth, life as you know it will end. It’s up to you to uncover the mysteries of Talos I and safeguard the world from the Typhon threat.
And a feature list:
- Sci-fi Thriller
