Bethesda releases new Prey trailer, features details on alien life forms and new gameplay footage
Thursday 16 March 2017 - 19:36 GMT

Bethesda has released a new trailer for the upcoming shooter game Prey. The game is the reboot of the Prey franchise and does not have a direct connection to the original 2006 release.

The new trailer that was released earlier today focuses on the different alien life forms that roam through the Talos I space station, which include the Mimic, the Weaver, the Telepath and the Phantom.
The Mimic life form is the iconic alien life form that has been featured in almost every trailer for the game. It can transform into inanimate objects to avoid detection and has several other unique abilities.

The other three life forms all seem to be connected to eachother as each of them could potentially stem from the Mimic.

In Prey players play as 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 scheduled to launch on May 5th 2017 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
