No idea why they even bothered to call that Prey. Looks like a totally different game to me so it should have been a new IP

The name.is kinda cool and memorable, though. If you played the original game and remember it fondly you're probably going to check this out. If you haven't/don't, no biggie for the publishers....

This is one I'll definitely keep an eye on

Pretty cool trailer! Though I never played the original, would do if it popped up on Steam for cheap.

This.. I mean the trailer is good and it looks interesting but this is not what made prey good.. Prey was to do with aliens invading and portals/roof walking/gravity shifts/American Indian stuff..

This looks like ground hog day meets dead space

The original was fantastic, and is still highly playable. This thread makes me want to dig it out again.

I've wanted a sequel for years. Will give this new version a try.

I guess there is a shortage of english words available to name games.
Lets just say this is a re-imagining of the original game but make a completely new game and ride the Prey 2 hype train....seriously this industry

I expected better from Bethesda

This game is like Total Recall remake.
I guess brand recognition in a crowded marketplace is suppose to help.
I just hope it does better than the movie.

I hope Tommy from Prey1 makes a cameo

If someone had told me that was footage from a new System Shock game I would have believed it over being Prey. It doesnt look bad I guess but I get an all too familiar 'been there done that' vibe from it

Looks very interesting. But it really should be called "dishonored 3: in space"

Wait, are you guys talking about that sci fi space game where you are a Native American abducted by Aliens, and then you can use your Native powers to go upside down and shit?

If so, man that was giant turd... I sincerely hope this game isn't following that story line...
Previews are looking good, so I pre-ordered and made another thread

Bring back Prey 1, heck id even love prey 1 to come back to steam!
That game was shit, with zero fucking story and an Indian with angst against his spirits (which pissed me off).
The whole upside down shit gave me vertigo and diarrhoea.
You can have my copy if game trading ever comes around.

When you are a foreign developer, this happens on occasion.

None of them have anything to do with one another.
Its the way of Far Cry; doesn't mean each one is better then the next. (with the exception of 3... Only game where I've physically burnt the disk because of that fkn ending

Did you play prey right through? Had great gunplay, art design, story and when you think it's over it kept going. The portal/different dimension stuff and anti gravity was a highlight for me. Just sounds like your a wuss and going by reviews, a minority.
