Prayers answered: Prey gets first gameplay trailer

"To make this right, someone has to die"

When a new Prey game was announced at E3 2016 people were scrambling to make sense of it. Is it a sequel? A remake? Or something different altogether? Well, none of that matters now, because Bethesda has dropped the first gameplay trailer for Prey at QuakeCon 2016 and it's another beast entirely.

The trailer kicks off like the debut trailer, with the player character Morgan's audio logs. Man-Morgan (the character can be played as male or female) spruiks paranoid garble about being watched from space. Of course, what seems like a delusion turns out to be something real and sinister. We see the smoke-monster aliens (initially spotted on Prey's box art) invade Talos 1 and quickly wreak havoc on the idyllic (and visually stunning) space station. We see Morgan using a number of weapons and items to combat the threat. Firstly, Morgan fires off a few rounds with a pistol and a shotgun, but the most interesting item is the Neuromod, a microscope-like object with needles that penetrate the eyeball. In one scene Morgan places the business end of this mysterious device against his eye and we're transported through a web of neurons and synapses. Exactly what the tool is used for is yet to be seen, but Bethesda did release this neat piece of promo art with the trailer.


Prey is available for preorder on PS4, Xbox One and PC at $85.99. Prey is scheduled for a 2017 release.
