Tonight, Bethesda announced – and released – several updates for one of 2017’s most critically acclaimed games: Prey, from the award-winning Arkane Studios. The new content includes three free modes that are available now, as well as Prey: Mooncrash, a standalone DLC that includes an endlessly replayable single-player experience launching tonight, and a multiplayer experience launching later this year.
Tonight’s free update for all Prey owners introduces three new ways to play: Story Mode, Survival Mode, and New Game +. Current players can update their game now and start playing these new modes immediately.
In Mooncrash, a standalone DLC for Prey, you’ll face overwhelming odds to escape a secret TranStar base on the moon, where the enemies you encounter, the hazards you face, the goals you complete, and the loot you collect are different each time you play. With changing environments as dangerous as they are dynamic, the Mooncrash campaign for Prey will offer a fun challenge to test even the most skilled players.
TranStar’s secret moon base stopped transmitting shortly after the events of Prey. Now Peter, a hacker stationed aboard a spy satellite tasked with intercepting TranStar communications, must find out why. Trapped and under a ruthless contract with KASMA Corp, Peter’s only hope of ever seeing his family again is uncovering the moon base’s lost secrets.
Prey: Mooncrash also includes the upcoming Typhon Hunter multiplayer update, announced tonight, a tense game of hide and seek between a single survivor and five other players who stalk, hunt, and hide in plain sight as mimics. The Typhon Hunter update is expected to release later this summer on all platforms.
Existing players can grab the Mooncrash DLC tonight for £12.99. For new players, Bethesda has introduced Prey: Digital Deluxe for £29.99, which includes the award-winning base game as well as the new Mooncrash DLC, and the three free modes launched tonight.
Prey: Mooncrash and Prey: Digital Deluxe are both out now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
