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.

Feature: New game+, story and survival modes

Prey’s new game modes are an odd bunch

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…
