Bethesda is bringing Prey 2, Skyrim, and Rage to PAX

Merely thinking about the lines that will form around Bethesda Softwork's titles at PAX Prime 2011 has my legs aching. Booth #1314 is where you can get your hands on id's Rage and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. For Prey 2, ther...

Prey 2 screens show Tommy, sleazy alien alleyways

I'll be honest -- in the Gamescom madness, I can't tell what's new and what's old anymore. I think we haven't posted these Prey 2 before, but if we have ... you can stuff it up your arse.  These possibly-fresh images rev...

Interview: Prey 2 project lead Chris Rhinehart
by Allistair Pinsof

After watching Human Head Studios' 20-minute E3 demo in June, I felt a strong pang of hopeful disbelief. There is just so much craziness going on in the demo that it's hard to tell exactly the game works. This speaks to the nature of hands-off demos, but, more importantly, it's an effect of Prey 2's ambitious, original design.

Last week, I had the opportunity to sit down with Human Head co-founder Chris Rhinehart and talk Prey 2: the limits of the open-world design, the history of the traversal mechanics and what (if anything) will remain intact from the original Prey.

Read on for answers!

Enjoy some new Prey 2 screens

Okay, so I'm going to be straight with you. I have a feeling not all of these Prey 2 screens are new. In fact, I recognize some of the ares from the demo we saw before E3. Still, Bethesda sent these out today and we didn't ha...

Bethesda: Forced multiplayer a waste of time

I really love Bethesda sometimes. Marketing VP Pete Hines as spoken directly to my heart, calling forced multiplayer options a "waste of time" and telling developers to scrap online features if they need to be shoehorned in. ...

No quick-time-events or vehicles for Prey 2

Sick of QTEs in your videogames? You'll be glad to know that the incredibly promising Prey 2 will not be featuring any of them. This assurance comes via director Chris Rhinehart, who quite firmly said, "We do not ha...

Interview: Where is Tommy in Prey 2?

Hollie asked Bethesda's Chris Rhinehart the question we've all had on our minds since Prey 2's reveal earlier this year, and it sounds like Tommy will play a pretty big part in it. There's also talk about the open world design, player freedom in movement and choice, and all kinds of other things. Take a look!

E3: Prey 2 is Blade Runner with aliens, looks amazing
by Jim Sterling

Prey 2 is looking set to be one of E3's biggest surprises. It's certainly Bethesda's least watched game, and that's a shame because it's already eclipsed its predecessor and could be one of the truly great sleeper hits of the generation. 

I am excited because, as far as I can see, few games have nailed Blade Runner's aesthetic as well as Prey 2, and this is in a world populated by games that try to emulate Blade Runner's aesthetic. It's set in an open world, with players taking on the role of a bounty hunter -- formally a US Marshall abducted by aliens -- who takes contracts and kicks ass in the name of money. 

With fluid environmental navigation that puts Brink to shame, players can jump, climb, and run throughout sprawling, vertically designed cities, chasing criminals through strip clubs with intense pursuit sequences that feel ripped right from the personal diary of Rick Deckard. With an intuitive cover system, over twenty gadgets (such as a grenade that forces enemies to float in the air and out of their own cover), players have a superb number of ways in which they can either kill or capture targets. 

Prey 2 is an utterly gorgeous game with levels that have rich contrasting reds and blues. The aliens are also superbly designed, although I hope they're not all sapient in nature and get a little weirder. In any case, Prey 2 is a game that needs your attention. It has potential to be an utter jaw-dropper.
