Prey 2 *IN DEV*
 
Quote:

Zenimax aka the parent company of Bethesda bought up the rights to Prey when 3D Realms was falling apart, and based off a French magazine cover page spotted by the guys at Evil Avatar a new Prey title is very close to being announced.
Prey was unique enough for its time to stand out on its own amidst a lot of competition. It'll be interesting to hear what Zenimax has planned, and which team is in charge of development.

I found the original Prey to be a lot of fun at LANs.
I'm looking forward to see how this one progresses.

"The id tech engine looks fantastic, you'd almost think that you were watching live actors!"

They are live actors. It's a live action trailer.

No way we're going to see realtime 3D like that within the next 20 to 30 years at least. Hell even pre-rendered CG is no where near that good.

I did enjoy the first game, never completed it though. I felt as if too many of the levels were a tad too abstract aboard the alien ship and I eventually lost any reference to the fact that humanity was being invaded - my interest was usurped by other games and I never felt motivated enough to go back to it.

The weird indian spirit gameplay mechanics were hard to relate to as well. Nothing against their religion or culture, but as they were going for a rather high level of realism with the visuals and shock/awe style to sell the alien/scifi elements I was hard pressed to accept that I could also turn into a ghost of an eagle and fly though walls and crap. The scifi and magic just didn't sync well for me and felt like the game on a whole was trying too hard to have "everything". It looks like they've decided to drop that in Prey 2 which I think is a good choice.

I hope they mix the levels up a bit more in this new one too, have more on earth and show more of the "big picture" invasion from the ground.

This is an interesting trailer..




Prey was indian themed, Prey 2 may end up a space-western :)

Prey 2 Gameplay


I know that America has been accused of certain lax attitudes towards Human Rights from time to time (so has Australia come to think of it); but ahh... what year does "using living hostages as shields from gunfire" become part of the US Marshal tactical handbook? I know these are just games and all but sometimes I think developers take too much artistic license with their decisions.
