It’s been a long time since we’ve received a brand new Quake game, with the last entry in the mainline series – Quake 4 – releasing all the way back in 2005. Now id Software and Saber Interactive have teamed up to bring the franchise into the modern era, showing off a reveal trailer for the game during the Bethesda E3 2016 press conference.
Prey has been completely revamped for its sequel, with it even foregoing the use of a number two in its title in order to completely reboot the series, before it had even had a chance to actually become a series. Developed by Arkane Studios, the game will be a “reimagining of the IP” according to Bethesda. It’ll arrive in 2017, and it looks very scary indeed.
