Prey Featurette Delves Into the History of TranStar

October 18, 2016Written by Michael Briers

Picture the scene: President Kennedy, having survived the assassination attempt of ’63, spearheads America’s space race and establishes the creation of Talos I, a highly advanced space station owned by the TranStar Corporation.

Welcome to the alternate timeline of Prey, the 2017 sci-fi title in development at Arkane Studios. To educate budding fans on the history behind TranStar, a new featurette has found its way online today, one accompanied by an extensive overview of the story underpinning the game.

In the alternate future of Prey, President Kennedy survives the assassination, which sets off a turn of events leading to the central conflict. After recovering from the attempt on his life, Kennedy threw his nation further into the space race by taking control of a U.S./Russian joint program and transforming a Russian satellite into a fully functional R&D facility meant to study non-terrestrials. This facility later became Talos I, a highly advanced space station owned by the TranStar Corporation.

After awakening on Talos I, Morgan finds the station overrun by a previously contained non-terrestrial entity called Typhon, which the scientists had been studying and using to improve the scope of human abilities. Aided by strange alien-based powers, Morgan must survive the incursion, uncover the mysteries surrounding the Typhon and save humanity from the impending danger aboard the station.

Prey is earmarked for release across PS4, Xbox One and PC sometime in 2017.
