The first batch of Prey 2 information has dropped via NeoGAF, and in all honesty it doesn’t sound anything like Prey at all. The game has been in development for three years, and has been restarted several times. It seems the Xbox 360 is the lead platform (uh oh). You play as Killian Samuels, a sheriff and prison guard.
The game’s producer claims Prey 2 is “heavily inspired by Mirror’s Edge, but also Mass Effect, Riddick and Blade Runner”. No multiplayer is planned, and Move, Kinect, and 3D are also a ‘no’ at the moment. The game has an open world structure – “Go wherever you want, talk to whoever you want, do the missions you want”.
It seems Killian is pretty flexible, as he will be leaping, hanging from pipes, balancing on boards, and jumping around structures. The enemy aliens won’t resemble what were in the original Prey, favouring a more human appearance. There will also be “an enhanced Killzone-esque cover system”. The portals will make a return, but there will be fewer of them.
