If you’re thinking about picking up the upcoming first-person shooter RPG Prey from developer Arkane Studios and publisher Bethesda Softworks, a re-imagining of the 2006 game of the same name, a generous new gameplay demo has been shared online to help you make your decision.
The demo runs a whopping 35 minutes long, showcasing what you’ll experience (or similar to what you’ll experience) at the start of your game. You can check it out below.
Nothing is as it seems aboard Talos I. As Morgan Yu, set out to unravel the clues you’ve left behind for yourself, and discover the truth about your past. What role will you play in TranStar’s plans, and the mysterious threat ravaging the station?
Orbiting the Moon, the Talos I space station symbolizes the height of private space enterprise. Explore a lavish craft designed to reflect corporate luxury of the 1960s, and navigate interconnected, non-linear pathways built to hide countless secrets.
The shadowy extraterrestrial presence infesting Talos I is a living ecology bent on annihilating its prey. It’s up to you, one of the last remaining survivors aboard the station, to end the deadly attack of these haunting predators.
Play Your Way
Gain alien abilities to develop a distinct combination of powers and upgrade your unique skills. Craft increasingly useful items with the blueprints, gadgets and tools on board the station to overcome dangerous obstacles in your way. Survive unprecedented threats with your wits and ability to improvise.
Some trailers and shorter gameplay previews for the game can be found right here if 35 minutes is too much for you or you want to see more.
You find yourself trapped in space, being hunted by an enemy you don’t understand, and missing significant chunks of your memory. Before you get your hands on your powerful alien abilities – hell, before you even get your hands on a weapon – your life is in danger. You’ll need to use your wits and follow the mysterious January’s instructions if you want to survive the opening moments of Prey. Aboard the massive Talos I research facility, danger is waiting around every corner.
Prey will be available on May 5, 2017, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
