Announced during Bethesda’s E3 press conference last month, the surprising direction that the Prey reboot, also known as Prey, has taken has left fans with many questions about the spooky sci-fi title.
Enter president and creative director of Arkane Studios Raphael Colantonio, who tries to answer some of these queries in a new video fittingly titled “What is Prey?”. Within the video, Colantonio emphasizes that this new title has no connection to the original, or the previously announced but unreleased sequel, both of which centered around futuristic bounty hunters tracking down their alien and human targets. Colantonio also promoted the importance of player choice, including which gender the player-character is, and access to unique tools and alien powers, which he argues are both key aspects of titles developed by the studio behind Dishonored and its upcoming sequel.
There will certainly be more to share in the coming months on this re-imagining of the Prey IP, as the title is currently slated for a 2017 release on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
