The Inspirations of Prey Film Fest Announced

The Inspirations of Prey Film Fest Announced
Prey is scheduled to release on May 5th, 2017

One of the many exciting games upcoming this year is Prey, a science-fiction first-person shooter from Arkane Studios. These are the same developers behind Dishonored and Dishonored 2. Recently, they released a developer diary talking about the design of the story and gameplay. However, that’s not all. They have also just announced a special Prey Film Fest, in partnership with Alamo Drafthouse Cinema.

The Inspirations of Prey – A Sci-Fi Film Fest will focus on the films that helped inspire the design of Prey, showing MOON, Starship Troopers, Total Recall and The Matrix all throughout April. In addition, they have a list of events lined up so fans can get a chance to try the game before release. If you’re interested in attending any of these events, you can RSVP here.

Honestly, given the impact science-fiction films have had on gaming, this is an interesting marketing move. I also think it’s cool to give fans insight into what creative processes influence a game’s development. The more I see of Prey, the more it continues to excite me. Fortunately, we won’t be waiting much longer to play it.

Prey releases on May 5th, 2017 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
