Prey’s Brilliant Mimic Abilities on Display With Some Silky Smooth Tunes

Prey (2017) Mimic Madness Video

Earlier this month, COGconnected was invited to a Prey hands-on event in Los Angeles. We were given an exclusive demo of the game on a high-end PC and told we would be playing, essentially, the first hour of the game. You can check out our hands-on preview here. Today we have a new Prey video for you which shows you some of the games Mimic abilities.

Prey Hero Alternate

Typhon have overrun Talos I, and Morgan Yu alone must stop the alien threat from destroying humanity. But don’t worry! As mankind’s last hope, you’ll be armed with a host of upgradeable human-based abilities to fend off the alien infestation. But why stop there when you can turn the tables on the aliens using their own powers? That’s right… in Prey, you’ll also gain access to Typhon abilities – unique alien powers learned by scanning the Typhon that are hunting you aboard the orbiting space station.

One of the first powers you’ll learn is Mimic Matter. Acquired from the diminutive (and aptly named) Mimic Typhon, this power allows you to take the form of just about any appropriately sized object aboard Talos I. You’ll start small – a coffee mug, a teapot, a lamp, a banana – but as you level up this ability, you’ll soon be able to mimic more complex objects, including an impressive array of security turrets and Operator robots.

Prey will be available on May 5, 2017, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
