Nobody was expecting it, but that's going to change!


French gaming site NoFrag has the cover art for the next issue of French gaming mag Joystick, with a cover reveal for Prey 2, a property once owned by the now deceased 3D Realms and currently owned by id Software & parent studio Zenimax.

Curiouser and curiouser.

Can I get a "Fuck You G***** B********!" ?

Figured I would let someone get that out of their system early.

Prey 2? I look forward to picking up a copy on Steam for $3 during next year's Holiday Sale.

Been a while, but I remember the original Prey honestly being one of the best FPS experiences I had at that period in gaming.
The story sounded astoundingly stupid on paper, but in the game it honestly seemed to work well. I also recall the weapons, graphics, and level design struck me as excellent at the time.
I can safely say I'll keep an eye on this as more details arise.

Wow, 3D Realms just pawning their entire catalogue, eh? >_>

Sadly, GB is probably still making money off these.

Same here... Something about it just felt great. Running everything maxed out was quite nice too. I can still remember a handful of moments from Prey but one that always stuck with me is that damn school bus when the lights cut out and it starts glowing. I have a feeling it didn't age too well but I will be re installing it shortly!

Still have Prey sitting on my shelf. Think I opened it but never installed it. Guess I could get around to changing that.

I quite liked Prey. The only complaint I would have is that, while they sometimes used the portals in a clever way, all too often it was just a way to spawn enemies behind you.

Fantastic news, as I loved Prey. One of the few FPS games I bothered to finish. Great story too. Walking on walls was fun. It used an enhanced Doom 3 engine, so it doesn't look dated at all.

Yep, and I even collected all the metal figurines. Watch those go up in value if Prey 2 becomes a reality.

For those who forget:


I can't hear "Don't Fear the Reaper" without thinking of this game. I love the intro, even if Tommy's voice acting is a bit shit (oh, and he's a disrespectful asshole). The ambiance is nuts.

Prey had atmosphere. The intro was one of the best in the genre because of the level of interactivity. You could flush toilets, play arcade machines, watch some TV or change music on the juke box. And then when all hell breaks loose... "Don't fear the reaper" starts playing and beams of light start pulling people through the ceiling.

What kept me interested as well was the Art Bell Coast to Coast segments. They were a really nice touch.

The last news about Prey2 was that it was in development with Human Head doing the deed, but who knows if that changed after Zenimax picked up the rights.

Same here, Prey was a great ride and I enjoyed every minute of it. I'd love a sequel.

There were also radios in the game playing a fake version of Coast to Coast and Art Bell was actually the host, pretty cool.

Funny. I spent the last two weeks thinking the recently-announced The Darkness 2 was a sequel to Prey. Not thinking terribly straight recently, but I have trouble telling these games apart (played both demos, but that's it).

Another +1 for Prey. Picked it up during a GoGamer Madness sale and played it beginning to end in 3 sessions. I'm keeping my eye on this one.
