Arkane is rebooting Prey, and from what we've seen so far, the game looks pretty damn good: it has creepy psyhological horror, futuristic sci-fi concepts, and surprisingly chaotic FPS action. Now the studio has dropped yet another gameplay trailer for the game, showing off the kind of eerie content that awaits gamers in 2017.

In fact, Prey isn't actually a reboot or a remake--it's a re-imagining of the series. "Prey is not a sequel, it's not a remake, it has no tie with the original. You have to look at it as a re-imagining of the IP," says Raphael Colantonio, president of Arkane Studios and creative director of Prey.

"Prey isn't just about shooting aliens. It's more of a hybrid game where narratives mix with action and a little bit of an RPG layer. So you have some weapons, but you have lots of other things too, including powers you can learn from the aliens themselves."

"I keep having this dream. I'm staring at the black between the stars. There's something there. I know there is. I can't see it, but it sees me. It sees...everything."

But Prey isn't horror. Not really--it's more of a psychological thriller.

"It's not horror. The psychological thrill dimension is morphed around the theme of identity. You know, who are you exactly as Morgan Yu," Colantonio said.
