1. Prey

Prey is the next game from Bethesda and Arkane Studios who are the creators of the Dishonored franchise. In Prey, you awaken aboard Talos I, a space station orbiting the moon in the year 2032. You are the key subject of an experiment meant to alter humanity forever – but things have gone terribly wrong. The space station has been overrun by hostile aliens and you are now being hunted. As you dig into the dark secrets of Talos I and your own past, you must survive using the tools found on the station, your wits, weapons, and mind-bending abilities. It’s been called by some as Bioshock in space and having played the demo I can see some similarities. You can try the demo now for yourself or just pick up the game when it launches on PS4, Xbox One, and PC this Friday May 5th.

    Prey is also at the top of my list 🙂 I look forward to see if the game has a cool atmosphere, as I loved games like Bioshock and Alien: Isolation and I hope this one resembles them.
