The much anticipated Video Game Prey finally got an official release date yesterday from Bethesda, releasing on the 05/05/2017 in the UK.
You may remember Prey from over 10 years ago, 2006 to be precise. Based around Cherokee Domasi “Tommy” Tawodi along with his girlfriend and grandfather who are abducted aboard an alien spaceship known as The Sphere as it consumes material, both inanimate and living, from Earth in order to sustain itself. It had a long and troubled development which originally started in 1995, it’s troubled history never left and still haunted the Prey franchise, with Prey 2 being announced in 2011 and later cancelled in 2014.
Prey 2 was to focus around the story of a US Marshall called “Killian Samuels” (Yes the name sounds stupid to us as well), abducted by aliens and now working as an amnesiac bounty hunter on the alien world Exodus. Unfortunately that never saw the light of day despite some glossy promotional work.
The upcoming Prey game, though still a Bethesda product, doesn’t have any direct relation to the original Prey and is an entirely new story.
