Spelunky, Dead Cells, and More Indie Rougelikes Come to Prey: Mooncrash
Today, Bethesda launched a new update for its Prey spinoff, Mooncrash. This update is called “Rogue Moon,” and it’s all about paying homage to other greats in the roguelike genre. It’s a free update, comprising a set of skins for the player’s Operator companions. Each skin is a symbol from or reference to one of several indie, roguelike games from as recent as Dead Cells, all the way back to Spelunky.
In the description of the YouTube trailer announcement, which you can check out below, this update is noted as “very special” for the folks at Arkane Studios working on Prey. The games included in the Rogue Moon update are staff favorites, and perhaps were big influences throughout the production of Prey: Mooncrush, which itself is a roguelike game based on the Prey skeleton.
Here’s the full list of included games:
