Bethesda Softworks revealed a new gameplay trailer for their upcoming first-person sci-fi action shooter, Prey.
Watch the first Prey gameplay trailer, but this time with Morgan Yu as a woman:
“Whether you’re using mysterious alien powers to blast your way through your enemies… or transforming into a coffee cup to casually roll through a tough situation, Prey is all about empowering you to tackle every situation in almost any manner you choose.
This philosophy is central to everything at Arkane Studios, and is a core part of Arkane’s reimagining of Prey.
But this doesn’t just apply to how you play. It also extends to who you are. In Prey, players will not only define themselves through their actions, but they can also choose their gender.
While this choice won’t change the story or how you interact with the world – because Morgan Yu is Morgan Yu, and he or she will be defined by the choices you make – it’s yet another way that Arkane is saying yes to the player.”
“The theme of identity is central to Prey,” says Creative Director Raphael Colantonio.
“Who is Morgan Yu exactly? We want to give you the freedom of being a man or a woman, but we also don’t want to limit who you become when you make that choice.”
“In Prey, you awaken aboard Talos I, a space station orbiting the moon in the year 2032.
You are the key subject of an experiment meant to alter humanity forever – but things have gone terribly wrong.
The space station has been overrun by hostile aliens and you are now being hunted.
As you dig into the dark secrets of Talos I and your own past, you must survive using the tools found on the station — your wits, weapons, and mind-bending abilities.
The fate of the Talos I and everyone aboard is in your hands.”
