If you’ve been playing games for the past few years, you probably have heard of a game called Prey that was introduced to us back in 2006 by Human Head Studios. Another Prey game was also supposed to be intro’d which was a sequel to the original, but unfortunately, it was finally canceled in 2014. If you liked the original Prey or you just love these types of games this next Prey is going to be one you will definitely want to check out. Prey: Opening Hour is being developed by Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda and its coming to stores near you in May of this year. Its quickly approaching to say the least. Before I get into the review of Prey: Opening Hour, I just want to go over a few things.
1- The demo for Prey: Opening Hour is available right now. This is your chance to download it and play it if you have not ore-ordered already, didn’t know about the game or you were on the fence about getting yet another game!
2- Prey: Opening Hour will be available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
3 – The release date is set for May 5th Worldwide.
4 – If you want to get the game, pre-orders are going to be over soon, so get them while you can. Here are the options available to you:
Tell me that trailer doesn’t look freaking amazing!
Summary: In Prey: Opening Hour, the player controls Morgan Yu while exploring the moon-orbiting space station Talos I, where research into a hostile alien collective called the Typhon is performed. As the Typhon escape confinement, the player uses a variety of weapons and abilities derived from the Typhon to avoid being killed by the aliens while looking to escape the station. The station is presented as an open world to the player, with progression through the world after obtaining key items or abilities similar in nature to a Metroidvania game.
It should be mentioned that while Prey was available in 2006, this one being brought to you in 2017 is not being considered a sequel, a reboot or a remaster. In fact, Bethesda has been quoted as saying they are treating this as a brand new game. So while you may see some similarity in things such as where Prey takes place or characters, everything else is pretty much brand spanking new.
The demo is incredibly fun and it really lets you take a sneak peek into the game. Also, if you like/love Fallout you will definitely love Prey. Not only are they both brought to you by Bethesda, but Prey has a very fallout feel to it!
