I feel like that title was a bit more foreboding than I intended… Whatever. Bethesda and Arkane Studios have announced a release date for Prey today. And they dropped an intense new trailer too.

“I’m Sorry. I Wish There Was Another Way. Nothing Can Survive…”

The new trailer today sheds a lot of light on what to expect in Prey. But at the same time really not much. The action on portrayal here has an almost Doom crossed with Metroid Prime feel to it. I supposed this makes some sense seeing has how Bethesda is the publisher behind both Doom and Prey. And Prey‘s sci-fi setting and ominous tone seems to take inspiration from Prime.

Here the synopsis:

“An alien-infested space station. Badass weapons and powers. And… Yu. Fight your way through the deadly Typhon aliens as Morgan Yu while unraveling the mysteries behind the infestation – and your own identity – in this sci-fi thriller from Arkane Studios. The latest gameplay trailer ratchets up the tension while revealing a little more about the central conflict in Prey.”

Much like the plot of Alien, Yu and his colleagues are terrified of the possibilities should one of the Typhon creatures make it to our home world. Thus, Yu will do anything to stop it from happening. There trailer’s quite good. Give it a watch below. Prey lands on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on May 5th.
