Ahead of its launch next month, Arkane Studios is dropping a Prey demo, “Opening Hour”, that includes – you’re never going to guess it, oh, you guessed it, how did you guess it – the opening hour of the game. As protagonist Morgan Yu, your first day of work as lead scientist onboard the “abandoned interstellar research facility” Talos I is probably going to be a bad one. I know, because there’s no such thing as a job on an abandoned interstellar research facility that ends well in a video game. It’s the rules.
“Aliens have overrun the station and are hunting down any surviving crew members, including you,” says the press stuff. “Should these creatures reach Earth, life as you know it will end. It’s up to you to uncover the mysteries of Talos I, fight the alien invasion and save humanity.”
Told you. Game’s out on 5 May on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
