Prey‘s “Opening Hour” demo is now available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, offering players a taste of what’s to come next week.
“You are Morgan Yu, lead scientist aboard Talos I, working on a scientific breakthrough meant to alter humanity forever,” the blurb reads. “What starts off as an exciting first day of work very quickly takes a dark turn. You find yourself alone on board Talos I, a lavish but abandoned interstellar research facility. Aliens have overrun the station and are hunting down any surviving crew members, including you. Especially you.
“Should these creatures reach Earth, life as you know it will end. It’s up to you to uncover the mysteries of Talos I, fight the alien invasion, and save humanity.”
Earlier this week, Bethesda released a trailer for Prey that showed off the game’s recycling system, allowing players to break down unwanted items into useful crafting materials.
Prey arrives on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on May 5th, 2017.
