The first Prey game completely passed me by and I've been waiting to pick it up in the bargain bucket for a while now, in fact I'll probably grab a copy when I get back to the UK, so I wasn't really sure what to expect from Prey 2 when I stumbled into Bethesda's press presentation. Needless to say it's impressed me greatly and I'll be running out to the shops first thing in the morning on release day to make sure I get a copy, although I guess I could save myself a lot of time and effort by pre-ordering it. First things first though, it's time for me to fill you in on what I got to see!
Prey 2 plonks you in the shoes of U.S. Marshal Killian Samuels, who was part of the same abduction event in the first game, and was sat aboard the passenger flight that ended up crashing into The Sphere. Immediately following this he weaves around the wreckage dispatching a load of hostile aliens, before he's overcome and savagely knocked unconscious. We then jump forward several years to discover that he's become a bounty hunter and is currently looking for tagets to capture on the planet Exodus. Killian has no idea what's happended in the interim and you'll have to piece together his back story as you make your way through the game. The developers wanted to create another game that made you feel like you were taking control of one man, who was up against an overwhelming force, and it's also got a unique alien noire theme to it.Click here for more Prey 2 goodness!
