The ‘Prey’ gameplay Trailer.

In case you were wondering what Bethesda was doing instead of the next Elder Scrolls or a Fallout DLC that strips you down to your underwear and sticks you somewhere dangerous*. Comes out May 5, and I’m wondering just how much gameplay there’s going to be in this thing. I mean, there’s a limit to how big a space station is likely to be a mere twenty years from now, right? ¬†Unless we suddenly figure out how to get a lot of stuff into orbit cheaply, and I mean cheaply**.

*Seriously: it was weird, the way that they went back to that well in both Fallout 3 and New Vegas. And Skyrim, come to think of it.

**OK, sorry. Looked at Wikipedia, and it turns out that this is an alternate universe with a divergence point in the 1960s. Fair enough.

    It really depends on how closely it hews to the original it’s reimagining.
    In the original, you encounter familiar environments that have been sucked up by a huge alien ship. (Not to mention small planetoids where the gravity does wonky things.)
    Since it’s Arkane of Dishonored fame, I expect it’ll be linear, but with dozens of ways and routes to attack each level. (As opposed to the full-bore open world of Bethesda proper.)
