E3 2016 – Prey Isn’t a Sequel or a Remake, Chris Avellone Is Working on It
Prey is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2017 and, as Game Director Raphael Colantonio revealed after the announcement, it’s not a sequel or remake to the original, but rather a “a re-imagining of the IP.” Additionally, the new Prey will allow you to explore and revisit one large area (it isn’t mission-based like Dishonored), and you can play as either a male or female character.
As Colantonio added, we’ll see more of Prey at QuakeCon this summer:
At Arkane [Studios], our passion for creating unique worlds where you can improvise, experiment and play your way has driven our vision for Prey. We’re excited to show you more of the sci-fi world we’re creating at QuakeCon this summer.
If you missed it, here’s the description for Prey:
Arkane Studios, the team behind the critically acclaimed Dishonored series, is bringing their unique vision to Prey, a first-person sci-fi action game that reimagines the franchise from the ground up… with an added psychological twist.
You are Morgan Yu, the subject of morally dubious experiments designed to improve the human race. You awaken aboard the Talos 1 in the year 2032 and must uncover the secrets hiding in the depths of the space station while being hunted by the mysterious alien force that has taken over. You’ll have to rely on the tools you find on the station – along with your wits, weapons and mind-bending abilities – to combat the growing threat and, hopefully, survive.
Over on Twitter, Fallout 2 and New Vegas developer Chris Avellone posted a picture in front of the Prey logo, writing, “They announced that game I’m working on helllllls yesssss.”
