PreyÂ is aÂ first-person shooterÂ survival horrorÂ video gameÂ developed byÂ Arkane StudiosÂ and published byÂ Bethesda Softworks. The game was released worldwide on 5 May 2017, forÂ Microsoft Windows,Â PlayStation 4Â andÂ Xbox One. InÂ Prey, the player controls Morgan Yu while exploring the space stationÂ Talos I, in orbit around Earthâ€“MoonÂ L2, where research into a hostile alien collective called the Typhon is performed. As the Typhon escape confinement, the player uses a variety of weapons and abilities derived from the Typhon to avoid being killed by the aliens while looking to escape the station. The player gains access to areas of the station by acquiring key items and abilities, eventually allowing the player to fully explore the station in anÂ open worldsetting. Arkane'sÂ PreyÂ is largely unrelated to the 2006 gameÂ PreyÂ developed byÂ Human Head Studios, and is considered a reimagining of theÂ intellectual propertyÂ set in a wholly new narrative. WhileÂ Prey 2, a sequel to the 2006 game, had been planned by Human Head, it fell intoÂ development hellÂ following transfer of the intellectual property fromÂ 3D RealmsÂ toÂ Bethesda Softworks, and was eventually cancelled in 2014. Arkane's game does not use any of the planned sequel's assets, and only incorporates the previous game's name and the broad theme of the protagonist being hunted by aliens. Arkane builtÂ PreyÂ as aÂ spiritual sequelÂ toÂ System Shock, providing the player with several potential means of progressing within the game.

The player takes the role of Morgan Yu, a human aboard a space station with numerous species of hostile aliens known collectively as the Typhon. The player is able to select certain attributes of Morgan, including gender, and decisions made by the player that affects elements of the game's story. To survive, the player must collect and use weapons and resources aboard the station to fend off and defeat the Typhon.According to creative director RaphaÃ«l Colantonio, the station is completely continuous rather than having separate levels or missions, at times requiring the player to return to areas they previously explored. The player is also able to venture outside of the station in space and find shortcuts connecting parts of the station.Colantonio also stated that the aliens have an array of different powers that the player character can gain over time; one such alien has the ability to shape shift into everyday items, such as a chair. The game has multiple endings, according to lead designer Ricardo Bare; the endings fall into three major narrative structures depending on how the player broadly interacted with the station and surviving humans, but Bare said there are "tons of little permutations" based on specific events.
