PC Gamer: Prey channels the spirit of System Shock #Prey


Phil Savage from PC Gamer has posted a preview of Arkane Studios' first-person sci-fi action-RPG, Prey.

Quote:
Arkane founder Raphael Colantonio describes immersive sims as a spectrum. If Dishonored is focused more on the action and stealth side, Prey is more of an RPG. The comparison made is to Arkane's first game, Arx Fatalis. Prey is still first-person, but its progression and crafting systems are more focused on specific character builds, and the combat is slower and more deliberate. In terms of lineage, if Dishonored is a descendant of Thief, Prey is a descendant of System Shock.

The most obvious difference is that Prey isn't a stealth game. Rather, it's an RPG with stealth. Much like Bioshock, you won't be able to take down the most powerful enemies with a single sneak attack—at least not without speccing for critical damage, or upgrading your wrench. Instead, the most useful application for stealth is to scan Prey's shadowy aliens—called Typhon. Scanning Typhon lets you learn their resistances and weaknesses, and can also add alien powers to your upgrade tree. This is how you're able to transform into a mug, via the Mimic skill that lets you target and take on the form of any nearby physics object.

So no relation to the 2006 game also named Prey? Kinda weird to duplicate the name exactly, like it never existed or to at least have some kind of additional title like Prey: The Reboot or Prey 2: Electric Boogaloo or something.
