  • Learn More About the Typhon Aliens in Prey

    A new trailer for Prey came out today called "Typhon Research" and it shows off some of the cute and cuddly aliens you will encounter on your adventure.

    Something has gone very, very wrong aboard Talos I. What began as an experiment aimed at bettering humanity has turned into a full-on alien infestation by the previously contained entities called Typhon. With a full ecology, the Typhon aliens are more than just shadowy creatures hell-bent on destroying the human race. Now Morgan Yu, who is at the center of these experiments, must fight the invasion in order to save humanity.

    Prey is slated to be released on May 5 for the PC, PS4, and XB1 by Arkane Studios. You can learn a bit about the Telepath, the enemy seen in the image above.

    While the Phantoms are the warriors aboard Talos I, the Weaver also creates other Typhon to protect their ecology and reach their goals. Among those Typhon is the Telepath, which not only can control other living creatures, but also delivers a devastating psychic attack that temporarily disables Morgan’s ability to use powers.

    “The Telepath is often surrounded by a pack of possessed humans,” Bare says. “And they know that they're possessed. They’ll move toward you, moaning and complaining, saying things like: Get away, run. Get away from me. I can't control myself. It's a pretty terrifying encounter. First you have to decide, ‘What am I going to do with these people? They're clearly innocent. The Telepath is forcing them to attack me. Do I kill them? Do I find a way to disable them?’ Then once you get past them, the Telepath is really destructive and powerful too.”

    Humans aren’t the only things the Typhon can control. The Weaver also spawns the Technopath, which can manipulate machinery aboard the space station. Which makes sense, because many of the Typhon on Talos I are created as a direct reaction to the environment they’re in.

    “The Typhon have some sort of an insect-like awareness as a network,” Colantonio explains. They know what’s around them, and they’ll adapt accordingly. Including one very big adaptation based solely on Morgan Yu.

    A breakdown of a few of the Typhon you will encounter can be read about on the Bethesda website.

    I'll mention here and now that the news posts that went up near daily will more than likely be coming to an end soon.

    I'd rather I shifted focus to more original content than copy and pasting...
