The Weapons and Powers of Prey

Posted on 28 Mar 2017 by

What’s a week without a Prey video, eh?

With the latest and greatest today comes this weeks newest trailer for Prey, titled “Weapon and Power Combos”. Not sure if I’ve ever seen the weaponry or the many powers of Prey before today, but it looks way more interesting than I initially have imagined. You’ll have an Energy, Morph and Telepathy tree to choose from, with each having at least 4 different powers.

The most intriguing power is of course the “Morph” ability one, where you can play as a banana or a chair, if not even a sheet of paper if you always wanted to experience life that way, I won’t judge, heck…you’ll be unstoppable! There is also a “Lift Field” power that does exactly what the name stands for…it’s a field that..(drum roll) lifts stuff into the air!

Now, it seems Bethesda forgot to mention most of the weapons in their Weapons and Powers trailer, but the information on all these powers we received this week should be good enough I guess, thanks guys, we’ll have to wait until the next trailer no doubt for more weapon badassery. Make sure to check out Bethesda’s blog post where you can get more detailed information on these powers and more.

You could always just wait and find out for yourself on May 5th, when Prey launches on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but what’s the fun in that? Check back here at Pixel Judge for more details on the rebooted Prey game, undoubtedly soon.

Official Press Release

We’ve just released a new gameplay video for Prey – ‘Weapons and Power Combos’ – which shows some of the unique ways you can combine your weapons, tools and abilities to take down the Typhon aliens.

You might be mankind’s last hope aboard Talos I, but you’ve got a mighty arsenal to face down the Typhon threat. Armed with your wits, weapons and a host of incredible powers, it’s up to you to stop the alien invasion and save all of humanity. Piece of cake. With 24 human upgrades and 20 unique alien powers to choose from (plus all of their upgrades), no two Morgans will be the same, and no two players will have the same experiences in Prey.  Along with the human abilities like Hacking, Leverage, Repair, and Gunsmith – all of which enhance Morgan’s innate strengths – you will have access to three distinct trees of Typhon-based abilities. Of course, there’s some risk when rewarding yourself with these amazing alien abilities. As you install alien powers, the turrets on the station will view you as a hostile entity, and you will increasingly run the risk of being targeted and hunted by the massive Nightmare Typhon. But with (sometimes literally) mind-bending abilities like these, we’ve got to say the risk is definitely worth it. Check out the full list of alien powers at and start thinking about who your Morgan will be, and how you plan to fight the invasion and save the world.

Be sure to look out tomorrow for a new video diving into Morgan’s armory as the development team discuss ‘Playing with Powers’, while Thursday will reveal fresh insight into Prey’s mind-altering Neruomod Division.

Set to launch worldwide on Friday, May 5, 2017 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, Prey is the highly-anticipated first-person sci-fi action game from Arkane Studios – creators of the award-winning Dishonored series which includes the 2012 ‘Game of the Year’ and the critically-acclaimed follow-up, Dishonored 2.
