In 2006, Human Head Studios’s Prey rocked the first person shooter genre with its impressive graphics and gameplay. It seems that fans will finally be able to return to the adventure in the form of the newly developing game of the same name. Multiple reports for a sequel to Prey have surfaced over the last decade. After the rights to Prey 2 were acquired by Bethesda Softworks and ZeniMax Media, hopes of receiving a sequel were crushed by an official report of cancellation in 2014. Fans were, thus, undoubtedly overjoyed by Bethesda’s announcement that a new Prey is on the way. A trailer shown at Bethesda’s E3 conference demonstrates the stunning visual quality that this new iteration of the popular game will have. By nothing short of design ingenuity, the image of Prey alone is enough to warrant applause.However, this version seems to be a reboot of sorts. Set in the year 2032, Prey will be a first person adventure that will feature a psychological twist on the genre. The player will control a test subject, named Morgan Yu, for a program that will prove to be revolutionary to human life. Unfortunately, the theme quickly becomes survival, as the threat of being hunted by an alien will require players to use all of their resources and skills. With no official release date, those who have been long anticipating a successor to the original will have to be satisfied with the official reveal trailer.
