It's official, Bethesda has announced Prey 2, and they've just released the new trailer.
Amazing Trailer So what I got from the trailer is that the protagonist is an x-navy seal that has been falsely accused of a crime he did not commit. Judging by the memory spinet they showed looks like he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time — in line at the bank when it got robbed, or riding in the same subway car as a murder is committed and happens to look exactly like the guy who did it. Maybe some one has deliberately sent an Evil Twin to frame him. Maybe it's a Government Conspiracy to silence him because he knows too much. Whatever the root cause, the phony evidence is so convincing, or the convergence of bad luck that makes him look guilty is so unlikely, our hero finds himself struggling to convince anyone that he is an innocent man. Even his own friends seem ready to write him off guilty as charged. (With this belief sometimes persisting to the point of What An Idiot.) The only way he can set this Miscarriage Of Justice straight is to find the real criminal and bring him to justice. This can take an episode or two, or it can be the premise behind an ongoing arc. Sometimes this can be resolved while the hero is out on bail, or perhaps it has to wait until he completes his sentence. If he's supposed to be in jail, then it also becomes a Stern Chase. If they're in jail and put in a Deadly Game or Blood Sport, they become a Condemned Contestant. If the protagonist actually commits some crimes in the course of trying to clear his name, then he will likely benefit from Wrongful Accusation Insurance — though most of them obey Would Not Shoot A Good Guy. Selective Condemnation is an extremely contrived Video Game variant. If the hero has to clear someone else who has been wrongfully accused of a crime, it's Clear Their Name. When the hero accuses the (innocent) villain of wrongdoing, it's Not Me This Time.
it felt like a distant cousin to duke 3d in some ways.
Prey was one of the first 360 games I attempted a 1000. LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS. THANK YOU JESUS.
A few guys I know didn't care for the visuals but in all honesty this is the 1 sequel I'm truly excited and looking forward to.
In the 90s Prey was in development at 3D Realms but they eventually sent it off to Human Head to finish development so that explains the "Duke" element.
is this the one with indian?
PREY 2..YEEEEEESSSSSSSS Been waiting forever to see if we'd get a sequel... Life is good.. Great trailer..one of my all-time fave games this gen...
Yeah the first one was sooo good. Maybe a little linear.. but who cares?? It was gory, had *amazing* graphics.. I loved it a lot. Great to see a sequel is coming. The trailer caputres the mood of the first 5 minutes of the first game really well. Seems like in this game we will play through the same Earth-enslaving events from a different perspective. Wonder how they will implement the spiritual aspects then, when there's a different protagonist. Can't wait to see more! =)
Wow. Live Action and no gameplay. FAIL. I still want to try out the first game on Steam. Pretty sure you can get Prey for like $5-$10 now. :P
can't remember the first one
What, you expected them to make a trailer with an ugly ass chick?
I loved the first game but I barely remember what happened at the end, it was so long ago now. Pretty neat trailer though, I love live-action trailers.
I can not remember either but I think Tommy wakes up and realizes that it was all a dream and that he should stop drinking battery acid.
at the end tommy is returned to earth and brought back to life from the netherworld by his grangfather and girlfriend. Back in the bar his grandfather ran the hot egyptian looking woman from the spaceship he helped free teleports in and tell him he is still needed to save the universe. I don't see how that ties into the trailer I just saw. Non-the-less, I am excited. I loved Prey, and have been hoping for a second helping.
what the heck was that? lol
Crisis 2 demo is out on the PSN !!! 1451MB!!
Thanks for the heads up. I checked earlier and it wasn't up. I've played the PC and 360 versions, now it's time to check out the PS3 version.
Well, that was pretty fresh, and interesting. Looking forward to finding out more. Should be interesting, Bethesda seem to be working with some pretty unique IPs now these days. Loving the logo also.
What is it with reveal trailers being so awesome lately? Dead Island comes to mind... But deff looking forward to this if they can make it feel less like Doom 3 in terms of the gameplay feeling dated.
If we are lucky they will run it on the id Tech5.
it is running on id tech 5. ign confirmed it.
that was cool but i would of liked to see some in game action, just a glimpse. cant wait tro know more about the game, i loved the 1st...
Hope Hope Hope.
I hope they bring back the no reload on all guns from Prey one. Reloading is for COD junkies.
I had a lot of fun with the first Prey. The weapons and portals were cool.
I would like to see a mix of reload and non reload guns. Just to keep it mixed up.
Really liked Prey, hopefully they do a good job with 2.
Okay, so there's evidently no Tommy. But hell, the Sphere is back and the Sphere was freaking AWESOME. Brilliant trailer. Just wish it was footage! I've just noticed. Could this be the plane Tommy saw from the first game and set in the same timespan?
Interesting theory. I remember the plane now that you mentioned it. More interesting now because the buzz I'm hearing says Prey 2 takes place within the same timeline. I'm also hearing Tommy may indeed not be the main man this time arround. Who knows, perhaps Tommy will be our spiritual guide kinda MGS2 Snake Pliskin style. It would be an interesting angle for people new to Prey. It would also be interesting to actually see the game connect the dots and continue where the original left off.
I wish they would port Pray 1 on to PS3.
i wish that was the trailer for a movie just watched battle L.A and skyline and they both sucked soo much...
Thanks for the heads up... I was about to go see L.A.
Yah thanks too, i was interested in Battle LA and Skyline was terrible. Awesome concept poorly executed.
instead of showing us some gameplay, they wasted money and man hours just to make this awful trailer...MEH!
Better than the usual teaser where we don't get much more than a title.
good ass trailer. only played the first one once, hope this one is good.
wtf was that.
The trailer is very cloverfield-like
