Prey® is a first-person sci-fi action game from Arkane Studios, creators of the award-winning Dishonored® series. In Prey®, you are the first human enhanced with alien powers aboard the Talos I space station . Improvise and innovate as you fight your way through the alien infested station in your search for the truth. Prey® is a bold new story set in a dangerous universe.
In Prey®, you awaken aboard Talos I, a space station orbiting the moon in the year 2032. You are the key subject of an experiment meant to alter humanity forever – but things have gone terribly wrong. The space station has been overrun by hostile aliens and you are now being hunted. As you dig into the dark secrets of Talos I and your own past, you must survive using the tools found on the station, your wits, weapons, and mind-bending abilities to defeat the Typhon alien threat. The fate of the Talos I and everyone aboard is in your hands.
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.
This first person sci-fi shooter from Bethesda has all the elements of the System Shock games, with a touch of Alien Isolation and dabble of Dishonored.
After playing through the first hour of the game, I was gripped by the immersive story and the impending sense of dread that Prey teased out of me as I wandered fearfully around Talos 1. Taking on the role of Morgan Yu, you’re quickly swept into a story of deceit, secrets and an enemy that is wonderfully clever and instantly difficult to fight against.
The Prey story is emitted to us through smart interactions and glorious in game technology, which had me guessing and reassessing my thoughts of the space station that I wake to find myself stranded on. Without giving too much away, Prey will lull you into a false sense of security and quickly destroy your illusions that Morgan Yu has so defiantly resisted.
The weaponry and special skills that you enquire along the way take me back to the Bioshock plasmids and the importance of switching between power abilities and your weapon set. I can’t wait to jump back into the role of Morgan Yu in May and unearth the deadly secrets of Talos 1 and the TranStar Corporation.

I have only played this game on Ps4 and it builds an immersing atmosphere of suspense and action. I would rate this 4 1/2 but that is not an option and the only reason it is not 5 is because I believe it push you through the whole story a little to fast.
As a self-proclaimed fan boy of Arkane Studios, my opinion will be slightly biased. If you're looking for an objective view go somewhere else. If you're looking for a quick review that goes over the positives of Prey, look no further! I'm a MASSIVE fan of Dishonored and Dishonored 2, so naturally, I had to play Prey. I wasn't quite as excited for Prey as I was for Dishonored 2, but my slightly lower expectations for the game were exceeded in pretty much every way. Great story, great level design, great audio and sound, and fun as hell gameplay (if a bit clunky at times.) This is Bioshock for a new generation of gamers and definitely a contender for the best game released this year. (9/10)
Forget everything you know about the original Prey. Arkane's new game is nothing at all like the original, and it's better off for it. Untethered from the original, the new Prey can be best described as a first-person sci-fi thriller that combines all the best parts of Dead Space with System Shock 2 and Portal 2. Written by Chris Avellone, who penned Planescape: Torment and Fallout: New Vegas, Prey?s story plays out like a book, teasing you with interesting slices of story through audio logs, and e-mails composed by the game?s cast of characters. But the game does a lot more than that?borrowing from masterpieces like BioShock, the game?s wide, open environments tell as much of a story, if not more.
Game reminds me of Deus Ex`a combined with Bioshock. In some cases I had the feeling that I play some new Bioshock, in game I like the possibility of solving puzzles with out of the box way with eg "foam" rifle, it serves to attack opponents but also can create passages. Lift doesn't work? Shoot the sides in the room where the elevator should be and jump up the foam. In addition, the game has a very extensive development system, and if we improve our hero accordingly, we can move a table or a larger cardboard to unlock the passage to a room we could not enter sooner. I also like the design of the production and the ability to use the elements of the environment to get to the hidden locations. The storyline is also very good at least at the beginning if the game maintains this level it will be a hit.
I'm amazed by how great this game turned out to be. After the fiasco of Dishonored 2, I expected this game to run just as bad, but it's not the case - it can be placed in the pantheon of great optimised games next to Metal Gear Solid V, Doom and Shadow Warrior 2, among others. Game looks beautiful and runs nearly perfectly - only bad would be little framepacing issues and geometry, but that will probably get fixed. Music is incredible and spot on, building great atmosphere of isolation in space - it is incredibly reminiscent of Ridley Scott movies. If we're talking games, atmosphere is just as great as it was in System Shock games. As for the gameplay, it's wonderful. Shooting is great and it doesn't control awkward in any way and the game is full of options of how to solve the problems, ethier stealthy or guns blazing. Writing is also great so far and it is way better mystery than in Bioshock, which spoils itself in first 20 minutes leaving nothing to discover other than how pointless the whole thing was. Overall, this game was well worth the wait. If you can't wait for System Shock remake or 3, pick this one up, because it is great spiritual successor to it with atmosphere, RPG elements (you actually have skill tree) and inventory system. Strongly recommended, you will have a great fun with this game, just like I have. Strong GOTY award contender.
