Bethesda Softworks have released a new trailer for their upcoming shooter, Prey. The video provides us with some insight into the dark history behind the TranStar Corporation and the space station they created, now branded ‘Talos I’.
The story of Morgan Yu and assassination survivor, President Kennedy is presented in a far more lighthearted way than the gameplay imagery manner but this doesn’t make the situation any less dire. When has occupying an abandoned space station ever turned out well?
[quote]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.
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.[/quote]
Prey is set to launch in 2017 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
