Prey - First Mission Gameplay

Runtime: 50:10    Author: nzgamerdotcom    Category: Game Footage

Prey -- the psychological first-person shooter form publisher Bethesda and developer Arkane -- is right around the corner. We managed to get some hands-on time with the game at a press event. The above video shows us playing through the game's opening hour.

It goes without saying, but there are spoilers.

You play the role of Morgan Yu, exploring the space station of Talos-1. Things initially seem calm, but a botched experiment quickly flips things around. From there, the game opens up, and allows players to explore the station's hallways, which are infested with aggressive, inky-black creatures which mimic objects in their surroundings.

At times the game feels like System Shock or Dishonored, in that you're free to explore a space and encounter enemies at your own pace, with whatever tools you're most comfortable with. Having enemies disguise themselves mid combat encounter is especially cool, as they duck out of your sight -- leading to a frantic paranoia, as you try to take stock of what objects were previously in the room.

Prey is set to release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 5.

Something about FPS cameras in general which need an overhaul, the movement is too croppy.

What are you talking about? It's just the player was silly and turned their mouse sensitivity up way too high, and was likely using their wrist not their arm. Is all. Nothing wrong with the camera. The same can be done to a 3PS

We actually turned mouse sensitivity /way/ down -- nearly zero. The mice we used had crazy high DPI.

I didn't want this game. Then I saw gameplay and now I really want it. BioShock meets dishonored makes me so happy.
