Prey gameplay video

Prey gameplay video

2K Games released a three minute long gameplay trailer, presenting a lot of new stuff actually. The portals looks cool as hell, and the minimize-feature is quite impressive. The overall art isn't in my taste though. The released date for the US is now 10th of July, and you can now see how the Collector's Edition looks.

And This game looks rediculously awesome. I hope this is a single player first, multi-player last type game becase there are so few FPS's focued on first player these days. But it looks awesome.

"That was fucked up"

Couldn't have put it better myself, some of the stuff in this game is totally mindbending but amazingly original.

Hmm don't know, looks very good but mayby a bit to strange for me. :P Anyway if i'm going to get it i'm going for the PC version, still find mouse way better than controller for shooters.

Initially I was looking forward to this game, but with games like GoW, The Darkness, Lost Planet, Too Human, BIA 3, etc etc, it seems there are far better games to look forward to in the action genre.

Looks like a modified Doom 3 mixed with voice acting from Postal 2. (yes i know this game uses Doom Engine)

Notice that when the guy went to that locker or whatever it is, it showed the mouse left click tool-tip type thing on the screen.

PC version, but X360 is said to be par with it and with no framerate issues at all.

www.3drealms.com - Prey Weekly Updates
Up until now we've essentially said that if you can run Doom 3 or Quake 4 decently, you should be able to run Prey. Our requirements are slightly higher than theirs. Of course, you could also get the 360 version (which is running very smoothly -- Venom is doing a kick-ass job).

The collector's edition looks PC-only to me.

Kind of surprising if it is the PC version due to some of the lower resolution textures and the chugging framerate. The person also did not look too great with a mouse.

Anyhow, the gameplay looks sweet. Wall walking, spheroids, portals, shrinking, organic living world, abduction theme pitting you against other warriors. Looks like a lot of fun, and I don't say that about many SP FPS.

:|, I saw the 8 minute gameplay trailer and then I see this and notice no difference anywhere, what is that telling me? I expect another Doom 3 kind of game, sadly.

I did not see any monster closets like Doom 3 :|

YAY! 10th of july. after i get my 360 and just in time for my birthday! Huzza!

I see no reason NOT to get this if you can afford it. GoW, The Darkness, Lost Planet, Too Human, BIA 3, etc etc are all coming out in the autumn, 'holiday 2006' or in 2007 as with the darkness. and none of them, to my knowledge, have the same unique gameplay features as prey.

That looks amazing! The portals and variable gravity and everything... Wow!

Video from PC version, no overscan compensation for gui and mouse buttons in graphic.

With the horror that was Quake4 I expect this game to run like crap on the 360, despite any lies the developers will spill to convince you otherwise. The Doom3 engine is inflexible and they are stretching it too far. Combined with a lack of interest to optimize it will be a disaster.

Interesting how the same engine when treated with care can be made to run perfectly on the xbox1 but give them something much more powerful and they just toss the x86 codebase right in there without a second thought. The conversion is also outsourced so "Venom" has to work on a fixed budget, whatever they can push out is good enough for 3D Realms.

Well you will be waiting till atleast November for all those games. With the exception of maybe Lost Planet.

Can someone tell me some about the gameplay of Prey? I re-read a preview in GamesTM and all I read was 'innovative' this and 'original' that, but they didn't actually specify actually WHAT was innovative and unique to FPS'.

@ Isomac + Manager:

You seem to have misunderstood me, I know that there'll be a 360 CE as well. What I wanted to express is that the posted CE tin box looks PC-only to me. I suppose the 360 version will at least have the usual 360 logo banderole on the top side.

  • asdfg
    asdfg Doom or any fast paced fps must play pretty terrible with a gamepad. (2 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @KORNdog: Thanks for that. him liking the game despite: "It even has its own version of Ubisoft’s weary “radio tower” mapping system that has become something of an industry joke." is VERY good news (14 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @MrWhite: Same here. After the many positive comments on NeoGAF and other forums I was expecting more. The gunplay and the sounds of it don't do it at all for me. Maybe just too fast paced for me. (24 minutes ago)

  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @alimokrane: yeah, i always worry when there is a late embargo. but even then they can turn out well critically (doom) even though i'd probably give that game a 6-7 myself. (32 minutes ago)
