Prey Receives New Video Describing The Setting News PC Gaming PlayStation Videos Xbox  Prey Arkane Studios

Prey is a game that fans have been waiting for, it has been a long time coming, but the wait is almost over. Bethesda has released a video they recorded during E3 that showcases some behind the scenes with the story about how it takes place in an alternate timeline, and some of the decor and its influences.

In the video for Prey, Raphael Colantonio explains how the game takes place in an alternate timeline where JFK survived the assassination and focused resources on the space program. Talos 1, one of the main space-stations in the game is a creation of that. Over the years since it has been updated, but certain parts have kept that retro-space feel that would have been modern in the JFK era. Now owned by a corporation to attract the best scientists in the world, Talos 1 is a different beast.

The video gives some insight and artwork into the creation of the location and leaves many wanting more. The art style is described as a neo-deco style for the future.

Prey is set to release sometime in 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

    “Prey is a game that fans have been waiting for, it has been a long time coming, but the wait is almost over.” – This isn’t really the Prey game players have been waiting so long for. We were actually waiting for a game that takes a human, rips him from Earth, and drops him on some alien planet as some kind of bounty hunter/P.I.

    I’m not saying this iteration is bad or won’t be fun, but it’s not the Prey game that was presented to us so many years ago.

      I’m gonna go further and say that as much as I was initially disappointed with what was happening behind the scenes and then the reveal trailer I still expected that the more they show the game the disappointment would wear off. That’s not happening. The more I see of the game the more deflated I get for it.

        I do have some faith in Bethesda. As long as it turns out to be more sci-fi/mystery than sci-fi/horror, I think it has a chance to be decent. I don’t be pre-ordering or buying at launch though.

      • Yeah I feel pretty meh about it too, it’s too bad the original vision didn’t work out. It looked pretty awesome!
