[WATCH] Bethesda shows first 35 minutes of Prey’s gameplay.
Prepare to be (mildly) spoiled.
Prey, or at least it’s planned 2017 reboot, is one of the most talked about upcoming video game title and rightfully so given the original version’s positive reception among critics and fans. The upcoming reboot, which was originally slated as a sequel, has undergone met with a few speedbumps being tossed around by publishers and developers before landing on the lap of Bethesda and Arkane Studios, who first collaborated with the Dishonored video game series.
The upcoming Prey reboot is said to incorporate some of the gameplay mechanics from Dishonored, only with less stealth, and one of its mainly recognised gameplay features include the ability to being able to change into ordinary objects such as a coffee mug to overcome certain levels.
Bethesda’s 35-minute gameplay preview shows us the first moments of Prey’s gameplay, starting from the pseudo-tutorial, a couple of fumbling around and picking up stuff, fighting mimics, the game’s alien protagonists, navigating your way around a ruptured laboratory, and of course, flushing toilets. While the video doesn’t actually explore much of the in-game universe despite being half an hour long, it does give us a good view as to what we can expect from Bethesda and Arkane’s upcoming title.
Prey will be released for the PS4, Xbox One and PC this coming May 5, 2017.
