2K Games confirms the much-awaited Human Head-developed shooter will arrive on Xbox 360s and PCs July 10.
Currently, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is at the top of the Xbox 360 and PC charts. However, one of the games most likely to supplant it--and its successors--on both lists is Prey, the upcoming shooter from publisher 2K Games and Madison, Wisconsin-based developer Human Head Studios.
Prey is a revamped version of the aborted 1990s game from 3D Realms, which is assisting in the new version's development. Since it was announced last year, the game generated much interest for its graphics and cutting-edge gameplay, which will feature gravity-defying, portal-jumping combat.
Though 2K reps had hinted that it was coming in June, Prey has borne an official release date familiar to those following 3D Realms' Duke Nukem Forever: "When it's done." Today, though, that changed. 2K reps have now confirmed to GameSpot that the shooter will simultaneously ship for the PC and Xbox 360 on July 10, 2006, as some online retailers have indicated.
For more on Prey, check out GameSpot's previous coverage, including our recent hands-on preview. Also, check back later in the week for an all-new exclusive trailer of the game.
Oh I didn't know that the date changed. Awesome news. I was wondering when I changed my preorder to the collectors edition they told me the 10th. Cool. I will be able to pick it up and go on vacation that weekend, lol.
I will be getting this one as well, I love FPSers its the closest thing to virtual reality as you can get. And trOOpa are you saying counter strike started the fps hype?:)
i can wait....i've got enough shooters, but i will get this because it does look like alot of fun, i want the explosive spiders :D rip dem legs
This game looks pretty cool.........kinda like a cross between Turok 2 and Doom 3, ide say there onto a winner!
i agree with spazzx625 haahahaha yeah there's been so much FPS game nowdays.. ha.. the o'l counter-strike days started it all
I'll likely wait for the reviews to come out before deciding on this one, though it looks promising that I will have another game to buy for the 360 post Oblivion. :)
Been waiting for this since I saw last year's demo at E3. This is definitly the next must have on my list.
I've been looking forward to this one for a while now, second 360 game I wanted to play ofcourse I'll pay on the PC instead.
Whoa an FPS for the 360?! freakin amazing, can't people come up with something different? It's one FPS after another, getting pretty lame. Where's the creativity?
Port for the 360? seems to me they have been doing both since the beginning, and sure it would be better on the pc but I would like to play the game at high graphical settings and 4xAA. But some of us here are not blessed with a $1500+ computer, I'm sticking to the 360 for now
Finally! I've been waiting for this since last E3. It looks really impressive although the graphics are somewhat old. Not really bad or anything but the Doom 3 engine got pretty old pretty soon.
Another pc ports for x360... Where are the exclusives? It's like all of pc games are on x360... I rather play it with mouse and keyboard.
FINALLY an Xbox 360 fps. I've been waiting for one. So far there is only CoD2 and GRAW. (the rest suck)
Awesome! This game looks great, and it's nice that it's coming out in the summer so that I'll have time to play it.
I have been hounding of what the release date will be, and its perfect in the simmer leaving planty of play in vacation.
Hope this on turns out to be pretty good. The FPS is a genre that is getting over played; but this at least seems some what fresh.
