Publisher Bethesda and developer Arkane have released a new gameplay video for Prey, giving a sneak-peek at the Mimic powers you’ll have access to. This mechanic allows users to transform into inanimate objects.
One of the first alien powers you’ll learn is Mimic Matter. Acquired from the diminutive (and aptly named) Mimic Typhon, this power allows you to take the form of just about any appropriately sized object aboard Talos I. You’ll start small – a coffee mug, a teapot, a lamp, a banana – but as you level up this ability, you’ll soon be able to mimic more complex objects, including an impressive array of security turrets and Operator robots.
Prey is set to launch on May 5 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Take a look as we play through the game’s opening hour.
