Bethesda and Arkane Studios announced that its first-person sci-fi shooter Prey will be released worldwide on the 5th of May. Along with the release date, Bethesda also released a new trailer for the game and revealed the pre-order bonuses.
The latest gameplay trailer ratchets up the tension while revealing a little more about the central conflict in Prey. The Typhon aliens have escaped containment, slaughtered many of the people aboard Talos I, and now have free reign on this massive space station.
While Morgan Yu, the game's protagonist remains shrouded in mystery, one new detail has been revealed thanks to a quick glimpse of his office door. Morgan is the VP, Director of Research for TranStar Corporation aboard Talos I. He has been studying the Typhon aliens and testing a new kind of Neuromods that are used to gain alien powers. You can "install" these powers by injecting needles into your eye socket.
Several different Typhons are also shown in the trailer and we also get to see some of the game's weapons in action. The trailer shows off a range of firearms, including: the S4 Tactical Pump Shotgun, the GLOO Cannon (also handy for building new traversal paths and covering up gaseous jets of flame), the Typhon Lure, the Q-Beam, the Disruptor Stun Gun, a Recycler Charge and, of course, a handy wrench when you just need to bash an alien in its alien head.
As for the pre-order bonuses, those who pre-order the game will receive the Cosmonaut Shotgun Pack. This pack includes three Neuromods (which you can spend to acquire new abilities), two medkits, and a fabrication plan to create shotgun ammo, and the Margrave shotgun.
