When the Prey reveal trailer dropped at E3 last June, it prompted a flurry of questions about its nature. Was this a sequel? A revival of the canceled Prey 2? Or something different? Since then we’ve received tons of information about the game, from dev interviews to demos, and we now have a clearer sense of what Prey will be. So, as the Prey release approaches, we’ve compiled a list of things you should know about the game in order to help you decide if it’s up your alley.

Prey is neither a remake nor a sequel, but a reimagining.
The new Prey will not mirror its predecessor. Nor is it a sequel. Instead it is a sort of reboot, a reimagining of what the game might have been like, had the devs had access to modern gameplay technology. Prey will be thematically similar to the original, featuring powerful aliens, semi-magical abilities, and a puzzle component. Fans of the original who aren’t looking for a straight re-master will likely find the new game well worth the wait.
