During Bethesda’s E3 conference, Arkane Studios announced a new expansion and free update to Prey.
The free update consists of three new modes: Story Mode, Survival Mode, and the heavily requested New Game Plus.
Arkane also revealed a new DLC titled Mooncrash. This new addition will be taking a procedural approach to the experience. The player will have to fight their way off of the moon, with every run having unique hazards and enemies, making each attempt feel different. The trailer also shows off the new location that the player will be fighting through, along with some of the enemies.
The trailer also makes note that “Every death counts” and “every second matters.”
Both the update and DLC are available now.
The team has also been working on a future expansion called Typhon Hunter, consisting of one player hunting down five other players, mimicking a game of hide and seek.
Konami Willing to Make More Remasters
Konami has said that it is willing to remaster more games if fans ask for them.
During an IGN interview at E3 about Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars, Konami brand manager Benjamin Kinney expressed the company’s willingness to produce more remasters:
“Eventually if you’re loud enough and you speak with one voice, anything is possible.”
Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars is a remastered version of the PlayStation 2 game featuring a new VR mode, coming to PC and PlayStation 4. The title was initially announced at Sony’s Tokyo Games Show in 2017.
The remaster will come native at 4K with recreated textures, updated particle effects, and new control schemes to name just a few of the many improvements across the game. The title also includes a new Very Easy mode so players can experience the story.
The most notable addition is VR support. Playing Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars in VR will put the gamer in the cockpit of Jehuty, the character’s giant mecha. Konami has recreated the cut scenes and assets to contribute to an immersive situation. The developers have worked with first-party VR companies such as PlayStation VR and HTC Vive to refine the game, making it as smooth as possible to reduce any chance of motion sickness.
Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars has a gallery mode with VR where users can tumble and look at various models in game. The game will sport “next-gen audio,” supporting Dolby Atmos and Dolby 7.1 surround sound.
The first game has not been remastered for the PlayStation 4 nor VR, but if the fans ask for it, Konami may listen.
4K and VR demos are available on the PlayStation Store to download.
