On December 11th, Prey will receive its final planned update of note, bringing with it two new modes. One will be a different take on the game’s multiplayer, while the other will be a single player, virtual reality-based experience. Both will incorporate VR, though.
- Typhon Hunter multiplayer: a heart-throbbing multiplayer version of hide-and-seek where one player, as Morgan Yu, is stalked by five opponents playing as Mimics, who hide in plain sight as everyday objects before seizing upon their prey. Morgan must hunt down and destroy all five Mimics before time runs out. Typhon Hunter VR, which puts the Morgan player inside the virtual world, will release in early 2019.
- TranStar VR: a single player, VR-only escape-room-style campaign that thrusts the player into the shoes of TranStar employees, where they will have to complete objectives and solve intricate puzzles on Talos I, just days before the events of Prey. TranStar VR will be available for both PC and PSVR.
The Typhon Hunter update will be released at no cost to those who’ve already purchased the Prey: Deluxe Edition, or upgraded their original game by buying Prey: Mooncrash. Otherwise, an additional $19.99 will need to be forked out to upgrade versions, though doing so will grant you access to any previously released Mooncrash content.
