Gamereactor magazine have the scoop on Prey 2. The main character will no longer be Tommy from the original game but will instead be Killian Samuels (where do they come up with some of these names?), a sheriff and prison guard.

The game has been in development for three years, with development having been restarted several times, and is heavily inspired by the likes of Mirror’s Edge, Mass Effect, Riddick and Blade Runner. There’s an open game structure and it features the same type of Parkour moves seen in DICE’s Mirror’s Edge, in which you’ll be running away from enemies, and there’s also a cover system comparable to Sony’s Killzone series and the potential to stalk and kill enemies from the shadows.

The vag portals from the original game will make a return but will be fewer in number, while multiplayer and Kinect and Move support have been left out entirely.

This all sounds fantastic and quite unlike the original game, let’s hope it will be as good as it sounds on paper. Prey 2 will be released next year on Xbox 360 and PS3.
