Bethesda has a new video out detailing some of the arsenal and abilities you can play around with in Prey. It looks like in addition to the typical assortment of firearms you'll also have pyrokinesis, a time-freezing bomb and even the ability to resurrect dead enemies to fight alongside you.
I'll be honest, the Prey reboot still isn't thrilling me. The premise seems at once overly convoluted and cliche, and these new powers just look like a scifi makeover for Corvo's powers in the first Dishonored game. We'll see more leading up to the game's May 5th release but this new take on Prey still isn't grabbing my interest.
We’ve just released a new gameplay video for Prey - ‘Weapons and Power Combos’ - which shows some of the unique ways you can combine your weapons, tools and abilities to take down the Typhon aliens: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Aro7eB53q8.
You might be mankind’s last hope aboard Talos I, but you’ve got a mighty arsenal to face down the Typhon threat. Armed with your wits, weapons and a host of incredible powers, it’s up to you to stop the alien invasion and save all of humanity. Piece of cake. With 24 human upgrades and 20 unique alien powers to choose from (plus all of their upgrades), no two Morgans will be the same, and no two players will have the same experiences in Prey. Along with the human abilities like Hacking, Leverage, Repair, and Gunsmith – all of which enhance Morgan’s innate strengths – you will have access to three distinct trees of Typhon-based abilities. Of course, there’s some risk when rewarding yourself with these amazing alien abilities. As you install alien powers, the turrets on the station will view you as a hostile entity, and you will increasingly run the risk of being targeted and hunted by the massive Nightmare Typhon. But with (sometimes literally) mind-bending abilities like these, we’ve got to say the risk is definitely worth it. Check out the full list of alien powers at Bethesda.net and start thinking about who your Morgan will be, and how you plan to fight the invasion and save the world.
Be sure to look out tomorrow for a new video diving into Morgan’s armory as the development team discuss ‘Playing with Powers’, while Thursday will reveal fresh insight into Prey’s mind-altering Neruomod Division.
