The upcoming Prey reboot is set to take the sci-fi shooter into an exciting, new horror-filled direction later this year when it releases May 5, 2017. That date isn’t very far away, which means developer Arkane Studios is starting to life the curtain off the game. They recently held a media event where outlets were able to go hands-on with the title (PlayStation LifeStyle’s preview will go up soon), and ask questions about the horror title.
One of the interesting tidbits to come out of this event was how long Prey will take players to finish. The game’s lead designer Ricardo Bare told Twinfinite that the game’s length will vary “widely depending on the style of the player,” but that playtests generally took around 16 to 22 hours, with 20 hours being the average. That’s a lot of time for Prey to spook the player, and should please those that were expecting a lengthy title.
The game will also feature multiple endings that the player will be able to influence by how they play. “Without giving you spoilers, I would describe the endings as essentially two main branches,” Bare told Twinfinite. “You’re gonna be making some pretty big decisions about the space station and the people aboard the space station. But then within those main branches, there are tons of permutations, and a lot of it has to do with what you did and how you treated survivors that you encounter.”
Prey is currently set to release May 5, 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
