Prey ‘Mimic Madness’ trailer

A look at the "Mimic Matter" ability.


Bethesda has released a short new trailer for Prey introducing the game’s “Mimic Matter” ability.

Mimic Matter is one of the first powers you’ll acquire in the game. It allows you to take the form of almost any appropriately sized object aboard the Talos I on which the game is set. That includes things like coffee mugs, teapots, lamps, and bananas at the start, and more complex objects such as security turrets and Operator robots as you level up the ability.

Prey is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 5.
