Bethesda has just announced Prey and at its E3 2018 press conference in LA.
Prey’s content will include an online option in which players face off with each other in teams. There will also be single-player content. A Bethesda blog sheds a bit more light:
Included with Prey: Mooncrash as a free multiplayer update, Typhon Hunter is a deadly game of cat and mouse, except in this instance the cat is sometimes a trashcan or a bottle of cleaning supplies and the mouse has a shotgun. This new competitive VR mode pits Morgan Yu against mimics that will stalk, hunt and hide in plain sight as they try to take Yu down. (Typhon Hunter will also be available outside of VR.) Typhon Hunter will be available later this summer as part of the Mooncrash DLC or in the Prey: Digital Deluxe.
Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot, meanwhile, is an entirely new experience in which you play as a hacker. It’s coming in 2019.
The Resistance has upped its tech game in the two decades since the events of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot drops you into the role of a resistance hacker on a mission to tear apart the Nazi forces in Paris using their own machines. Take control of a fire-breathing Panzerhund and more as you fight Nazis in the City of Love in order to aid the French resistance. Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot will be available as a standalone VR game in 2019. Saddle up, Cyberpilot. You’re one of us now.
Both games are on display at E3 this week, though we won’t know platforms they’ll be on just yet.
This is far from Bethesda’s first VR project. Last year the studio released versions of Fallout 4 and Skyrim for headsets as well as a new Doom game
