Prey: Typhon Hunter DLC pack hitting December 11th

Prey isn’t done yet. Bethesda’s horror FPS is getting yet another expansion with Typhon Hunter, a mode that promises tense multiplay.

Bethesda’s Prey might not have gotten the best reception when it was released last year, but it’s still rolling with some really cool downloadable content. The latest (and last) of which is called Typhon Hunter.

Typhon Hunter multiplayer: a heart-throbbing multiplayer version of hide-and-seek where one player, as Morgan Yu, is stalked by five opponents playing as Mimics, who hide in plain sight as everyday objects before seizing upon their prey. Morgan must hunt down and destroy all five Mimics before time runs out. Typhon Hunter VR, which puts the Morgan player inside the virtual world, will release in early 2019.

Prey-ing for more

While Typhon Hunter looks pretty slick for multiplayer fans, this new round of DLC also includes some single player content. Well, it does if you’re gaming on a PC or PS4, and have access to Virtual Reality.

Called TranStar VR, the second part of the new addition casts players in the role of a TranStar employee, in a prequel to the main game.

TranStar VR: a single player, VR-only escape-room-style campaign that thrusts the player into the shoes of TranStar employees, where they will have to complete objectives and solve intricate puzzles on Talos I, just days before the events of Prey. TranStar VR will be available for both PC and PSVR.

December 11th is the date for Typhon Hunter, though you’ll have to wait just a bit longer to get the VR stuff. That’s set for an “early 2019” launch.

Remember too, that if you have the Prey: Digital Deluxe or have upgraded to Prey: Mooncrash, then you already will be getting this. It’s free content. You just have to download it when it releases.
