Prey: Typhon Hunter and Transtar VR out now as free Mooncrash extras

Prey: Mooncrash was already my pick for expansion of the year, and that was before today when Arkane Studios threw in two more games for free. Typhon Hunter is a multiplayer game inspired by Team Fortress 2 and Garry's Mod favourite Prop Hunt - a team of five shapeshifting alien shadow-spiders attempts to outfox a lone human. Transtar VR is an escape room-styled prologue to…

Prey: Mooncrash adds free paranoid multiplayer and VR escape rooms next week

The deadliest multiplayer game of all - hide and seek - is coming to excellent Prey expansion Mooncrash next week, free. Typhon Hunter was announced when Mooncrash launched, and sounds a lot like Prop Hunt, a mode big with the Garrys Mod and Team Fortress 2 scenes. Six players, one as an increasingly paranoid human and the other five as shapeshifting Mimics waiting for a chance…

Prey: Mooncrash adds homages to indie roguelikes in free update

Arkane’s space-faring update for immersive sim Prey was a more roguelike spinoff called Mooncrash, and now they’ve added some homages to the indie games of the genre that inspired them. The free Rogue Moon update gives players the chance to add skins based on these games to their operator companions, as you can see in the trailer below:

Arkane hint vaguely at the studio’s future, while Dishonored is “resting for now”

While none of their games have been the industry-shaking hits I would have loved them to be, Dishonored and Prey developers Arkane have put the immersive sim genre back on the map. At QuakeCon last week, agents for the ever-sneaky VG247 managed to pin down Ricardo Bare, lead designer at Arkane. Despite the studio being famously evasive ever since that whole Press Sneak Fuck incident,…

Feature: New game+, story and survival modes

Prey’s new game modes are an odd bunch

Goodness me, I'd forgotten how brilliant the opening of Prey is. Bluffs and misdirects, some delivered on immediately, others saving surprises up for later, it's an ever-backward-pulling camera as your complex situation begins to dawn upon you. And thank goodness it is quite so good, because if you want to play Prey's New Game+, or it's Story Mode, you're going to have to go through…

Prey: Mooncrash offers a surprising amount to do in a deceptively small space

Prey: Mooncrash is a game of refinement. It's a piece of DLC that uses an economy of space by asking you to replay the same sprawling collection of areas repeatedly, with varying characters, varying skillsets, and an ever-changing threat to combat. It's a game that will make you play Prey differently than you have before, and you'll be grateful of it.

Bethesda’s new VR bits include Prey mimicking prop hunt

Not satisfied with bringing snow trolls and hellspawn to expensive cyber goggles, Bethesda are bringing two more of their games to VR – Prey and Wolfenstein. Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot and Prey: Typhon Hunter are set in their respective universes and, of the two, Typhon Hunter seems the most interesting. It’s a prop hunt-like bit of multiplayer hide and seek, in which five players are mimics pretending…

Prey Mooncrash DLC out now alongside free story, survival and new game+ modes

At last night's Bethesda E3 conference, we got another of those 'here's a thing and it's out now' announcements. It's a Prey expansion, called Prey Mooncrash, which is pitched as "an infinitely replayable experience" in which the "enemies, hazards and loot" are different each time you play. If spending money isn't your thing, Arkane had more Prey-flavoured stuff, too. A free update - also out…
