First Batch of Prey 2 Screens Hit the Net

With the announcement of Prey 2, there was a mixed response. On the one hand, there was the usual, “Ooooohhh, I loved the original!” but rightly so – I think, anyway – there was the “Wait, they’ve removed the portals, the grav walks and everything that made Prey what it was… this isn’t Prey!”
The sequel opens its arms to another style of gameplay, set in the same universe. You’ll be hearing more later on in the week when we preview the arse out of it, but for now, just know that the new game opens its doors to sandbox environments, free-running gameplay and “player choice” – something that Hothead games were keen to push in last week’s gameplay demo at the BFG Showcase.
Until we give you the ins and outs though, sit back and soak up the delights of the 5 new screenshots where the Blade Runner influence – and even Mass Effect influence – in the game’s art is abundantly clear. When you've seen the preview versions below, head on over to the gallery for a better look.
Prey 2 is scheduled for a 2012 release.
