The stream of free continues for Prey fans with the release of the Rogue Moon update. As it was with Prey’s Blood Moon update, this just makes a few cosmetic additions in the form of a few operator skins. The theme this time is exemplary games representing the roguelike genre, of which the excellent Prey: Mooncrash is a member.
Starting today, fans who boot up Prey: Mooncrash will have their choice of six new skins to apply to their operator buddy while fighting for their life in the Pytheas moon base. Each skin represents a different game, of which players will be able to choose from the following:
- Darkest Dungeon
- Dead Cells
- Don’t Starve
- Rogue Legacy
- Risk of Rain
Beyond this Rogue Moon update, Prey fans still have a new game mode to look forward to. At the same time Prey: Mooncrash was announced, Arkane Studios also announced the upcoming addition of a new, multiplayer game mode called “Typhon Hunter.” In this mode, five players play as Mimics while the sixth plays as Morgan Yu. The goal of each side is pretty straightforward: kill each other. Morgan wins once they succeed to destroy all five Mimics, and the Mimics win if they manage to down Morgan first. Arkane has yet to announce a definitive release date for Typhon Hunter, but with the previous summer release window coming to a close, it stands to reason that it’ll be coming pretty soon.
One last thing worth noting is the moon footage present in each and every one of these update trailers. It’s used to open each preview and is always presented in an ominous manner, but nothing out of the ordinary has shown up yet. It might be that this footage is either just present to tie into Prey: Mooncrash or will eventually tease Typhon Hunter, but that doesn’t seem quite right.
The last time Arkane Studios threw up some innocuous lunar imagery, it wound up being a tease for a major piece of DLC. It’s doubtful that they’re planning something else on the scale of Mooncrash, but there might yet be chance that the developer still has more in store for Prey beyond the Typhon Hunter multiplayer mode.
Prey and Prey: Mooncrash are currently available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
