Prey box art revealed, story details clarified
Hot off the heels of Prey's "re-announcement" at Bethesda's E3 conference, the PS4, Xbox One and PC box art has been revealed for the upcoming psychological thriller.
Just over an hour after a new Prey title was announced, Bethesda has revealed the game's box art via its E3 press kit.
In the image, we see protagonist Morgan Yu on a catwalk, armed with a shotgun and futuristic visor. Behind him, the space station Talos orbits the moon in a shroud of smoke that looks somewhat like alien tendrils and even more like the infection that plagues Morgan in the game's cinematic trailer.
The press release also clarifies some of the story elements we experienced during Bethesda's conference:
Things have gone terribly wrong
In Prey, you awaken aboard Talos I, a space station orbiting the moon in the year 2032. You are the key subject of an experiment meant to alter humanity forever – but things have gone terribly wrong. The space 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 must survive using the tools found on the station, your wits, weapons and mind-bending abilities.
Prey is set to release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in 2017. Though, our recent findings suggest we probably won't see it before next year's E3.
