Bethesda Softworks, the publisher behind the Dishonored series, Fallout series and The Elder Scrolls series, announced that their newest game, Prey, has a launch date.
Prey releases worldwide on Friday, May 5, 2017 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. This means fans will not have to wait too much longer for the highly anticipated new game.
Prey is Bethesda’s new sci-fi first-person shooter. The player plays Morgan Yu, a human aboard a space station called Talos I which orbits the moon in the year 2032. Yu is a key test subject in an experiment that will change humanity forever-but things go terribly haywire. As the space station becomes overrun with hostile aliens, Yu has no choice but to fight for their life and find a way to stop the alien threat. Yu must uncover the dark secrets of the Talos I and their own past, all while trying to survive by using the stations tools, weapons, their own wits and new-found abilities.
Prey was actually supposed to be a sequel to Human Head Studios’ 2006 hit, Prey (2006) but after years of being in development hell, Bethesda scrapped the game and instead rebooted the series into a new re-imagining.
Much likes Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls games, Prey will be partially customizable. The player will be able to make modifications to Yu including gender, and players will also be able to adjust the story depending on the decisions they make throughout the game.
Fans wanting to pre-order Prey will get the exclusive Cosmonaut Shotgun Pack. Prey’s pre-order bonus includes Morgan Yu’s family heirloom Margrave shotgun and tools, three Neuromods for players to spend on new abilities, two med kits, a fabrication plan to create the shotgun and ammo, a starter kit for building tools and weapons, and a unique upgrade to help players preserve their resources.
