New Prey Preview Available

This afternoon brings us the news of a new Prey preview that's available now. If you check out the September 2005 issue of Computer Gaming World, they have a big 4 page spread on Prey. There's plenty of goodness in this article, including tidbits from our own Scott Miller & George Broussard, as well as from Chris Rhinehart & Tim Gerritson of HumanHead.

There's plenty of text to read about the game, there's some screenshots as well as conceptual art, and a breaktown of the gameplay when you die in the game (the Spirit Realm). There's a description of some action in the game which gives you some insight into the bar scene at the start of the recent E3 Prey floor video. There's even some quotes from CGW about their preview of Prey back in the June 1997 issue of their magazine. :) But the focus here is the gameplay, how it looks... awww, let's just get to the quotes..

"The jaded cynic inside has ben quieted." -- CGW

"The script certainly shows lots of promise for what lies ahead, but there are a number of innovations that are equally, if not more, important to Prey." -- CGW

"I think we've mostly achieved our goal of making a tragic love story within the FP genre, one that players will care about. This was not a part of the original design for Prey." -- Scott Miller

"Evertyhing has a very biomechanical feel. Items are grated onto each other -- organic membranes serve as "sphinc-doors", and alien monsters sprout firearms" -- CGW

You're going to want to go to your newsstands to check out this preview, as it isn't online. You want the September 2005 issue of Computer Gaming World, the cover of which can be shown here.
