We’ve known for awhile that Arkane Studios was most likely working on Prey, but what we didn’t know was that they had ditched the already announced sequel and have since gone for a full reboot of the series instead. Based on the first trailer, it looks like they made the right call.
Here’s the official synopsis for Prey straight from Bethesda and Arkane Studios:
You are Morgan Yu, the subject of morally dubious experiments designed to improve the human race. You awaken aboard the Talos 1 in the year 2032 and must uncover the secrets hiding in the depths of the space station while being hunted by the mysterious alien force that has taken over. You’ll have to rely on the tools you find on the station – along with your wits, weapons and mind-bending abilities – to combat the growing threat and, hopefully, survive.
Check out the reveal trailer for Prey below and stay tuned for further coverage of the game as E3 continues on this week.
