Prey (2006)

Gamers have long waited to sink their teeth into Prey, the shooter from 3D Realms and Human Head that was first announced back in the late 1990s. The game is headed for the Xbox 360 and PC July 10, after a long stint in development limbo.

2K Games and 3D Realms aren't waiting around for midsummer to let gamers try their hand at the sci-fi first-person shooter. On the 3D Realms Web site, the company has announced that the demo for the game will be available for the PC and Xbox 360 on June 22.

Details on the intricacies of the demo have yet to be revealed, but early word from the developer indicates it won't be tiny. According to 3D Realms, the demo will consist of five levels, picked from both the multiplayer and single-player portions of the game.

In Prey, gamers play as Tommy, a Native American auto mechanic who finds himself at the center of an alien invasion. Using the powers of his ancestors and a healthy helping of firearms, Tommy takes on the bad guys in the grafity-defying, portal-hopping action game.

Prey has not yet been rated and will retail for $49.99 and $59.99 on the PC and Xbox 360, respectively. Limited-edition versions will also be available for $10 more. For more details on the game, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
