'Prey' (ALL) Typhon Hunter Update Will Add Multiplayer Mode, Escape Room VR Experience Next Week - Trailer

In Prey, you awaken aboard Talos I, a space station orbiting the moon in the year 2032. You are the key subject of an experiment meant to alter humanity forever, but the space station has been overrun by hostile aliens, and you are now being hunted.

Prey is a first-person sci-fi action game that re-imagines the franchise from the ground up ... with an added psychological twist.

In Prey, you find yourself aboard a space station, hunted by aliens, desperate to not only survive but also unravel the enigma of your own identity.

But it’s not just extraterrestrial threats that you’ll encounter.

You are Morgan Yu, the subject of morally dubious experiments designed to improve the human race. You awaken aboard the Talos 1 in the year 2032 and must uncover the secrets hiding in the depths of the space station while being hunted by the mysterious alien force that has taken over. You'll have to rely on the tools you find on the station — along with your wits, weapons and mind-bending abilities — to combat the growing threat and, hopefully, survive.

The space station Talos I is as much of a character as Morgan Yu, it’s an alternate future as imagined by Arkane – a timeline that (among other things) includes President Kennedy surviving his assassination attempt. In Prey’s version of the future, the U.S. has built an even stronger space program, with Talos I emerging as a space station unlike anything you’ve seen in movies or games.

Fight overwhelming odds to escape a secret TranStar moon base where the enemies you encounter, the hazards you face, the goals you complete, and the loot you collect are different each time you play. With changing environments as dangerous as they are dynamic, the Mooncrash campaign for Prey will offer a fun, infinitely replayable challenge to test even the most skilled players.

Prey: Typhon Hunter, the final update for Prey: Digital Deluxe and Prey: Mooncrash,will release next week, bringing a tense new multiplayer mode and a VR-only single player game to the award-winning title.

Prey: Typhon Hunter includes two new exciting modes for Prey:

  • Typhon Hunter multiplayer: a heart-throbbing multiplayer version of hide-and-seek where one player, as Morgan Yu, is stalked by five opponents playing as Mimics, who hide in plain sight as everyday objects before seizing upon their prey. Morgan must hunt down and destroy all five Mimics before time runs out. Typhon Hunter VR, which puts the Morgan player inside the virtual world, will release in early 2019.
  • TranStar VR: a single player, VR-only escape-room-style campaign that thrusts the player into the shoes of TranStar employees, where they will have to complete objectives and solve intricate puzzles on Talos I, just days before the events of Prey. TranStar VR will be available for both PC and PSVR.

Players who already purchased Prey: Digital Deluxe or upgraded their original version of Prey with Prey: Mooncrash, will receive both new game modes at no extra cost. New players can purchase Prey: Digital Deluxe for $39.99 to receive the original game as well as all of the following updates; existing Prey owners can upgrade their game to Prey: Mooncrash for $19.99.

Typhon Hunter will release December 11 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The VR version of the multiplayer mode will arrive later, in early 2019 for PC and PSVR.
