Prey Player Choices and Consequences

There was a time when we used to play game with many different approach yet meeting with same conclusion. Then as time passed, developers started being creative and introduced the concept of "Choices and Consequences" that matters in the end result of games. Recently, Telltale Games has taken that concept and making people feel more responsible for the consequences against their actions. Looks like, developer Arkane Studio is following the same footsteps with their upcoming project Prey.

Only Yu Can Save the World

The following clip titled "Only Yu Can Save the World" contains clip from the game detailing a few cut-scenes and the people behind the game talking about "Choices and Consequences".




Abroad Talos-1, everything you do, every step you take, is going to matter in the end no matter how insignificant that might be. For example, as Morgan Yu, you will come across many survivors during the course of Prey. Some of them will want your help to live or some may even ask for favor. What you choose to do next by either saving them or abandoning them by ignoring does not essentially make you a bad person but it sure will affect the outcome of the game. Morgan will also discover his brother Alex Yu, also the CEO of TranStar Corporation is in fact alive and planning for something fishy.



One other thing is that, you can constantly upgrade yourself and obtain more and more alien abilities to become more powerful and to best your chances against your Typhon enemies. But consequences also chase you here as there are a breed of Typhon called Nightmare and their job is to hunt you down. The more you will increase your alien powers, the better they are aware of your presence and it becomes easier for them to prey upon you.

Defined as a successor of System Shock and Dead Space by fans, this concept of the game sure is gonna be a favorable aspect of the game to gamers when it comes out on May 5, 2017.
