Do You Hunt for Prey, or Are You the Prey?

We know about the Talos I now, we’ve been watching Prey’s progress since E3 this year, but we don’t quite know what it is. A research and development station sure, but was it always that way?

The short answer is no. The slightly longer answer is that it was actually the Russian satellite Vorona I. After a run in with a non-terrestrial threat, Vorona I began to transform itself from a satellite to a containment unit to enclose such a threat and was subsequently built into a massive station thanks to our good pal Kennedy. Experiments on the the non-terrestrial threat dubbed “Typhon”, and humans alike were carried out to explore the exploits of such a life form. However, to grasp the full nature of such a story, you’ll have to play the game.

Prey will find us, adapt and survive in 2017.

Official Press Release

We’ve just released a new video for Prey, the first-person sci-fi action game from Arkane Studios, titled, “The History of TranStar”. Discover more about the dark history of Talos I in this newly released alternate history video:

In the alternate future of Prey, President Kennedy survives the assassination, which sets off a turn of events leading to the central conflict. After recovering from the attempt on his life, Kennedy threw his nation further into the space race by taking control of a U.S./Russian joint program and transforming a Russian satellite into a fully functional R&D facility meant to study non-terrestrials. This facility later became Talos I, a highly advanced space station owned by the TranStar Corporation.

In just the scant few years since TranStar took over, the station has been used as the testing ground for some morally dubious experiments, with people on board serving as subjects – people like Morgan Yu. After awakening on Talos I, Morgan finds the station overrun by a previously contained non-terrestrial entity called Typhon, which the scientists had been studying and using to improve the scope of human abilities. Aided by strange alien-based powers, Morgan must survive the incursion, uncover the mysteries surrounding the Typhon and save humanity from the impending danger aboard the station.

Prey is slated for release in 2017 on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
