The last time we checked-in with Bethesda’s ‘Prey’ was during last year’s big E3 reveal. Now we have a firm release-date and a new trailer that shows off the gameplay (and horrors) that await players this summer.

Bethesda Softworks released a new gameplay trailer for “Prey” this week, the studio also confirmed the game’s release date on social-media. According to today’s announcement, Prey will release worldwide on Friday, May 5, 2017. The game will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC and is already available for pre-order on sites like Amazon.com.

Prey is a highly-anticipated first-person sci-fi action game from Arkane Studios, the same studio that helped create the “Dishonored” series. The team also returned to the franchise to work in “Dishonored 2“.

The publisher teased the game stating, “When you awaken aboard Talos I, an immense space station orbiting the moon in the year 2032, you find yourself as the key subject of an experiment meant to alter humanity forever – but things have gone terribly wrong.” Bethesda went on to say, “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 to defeat the Typhon alien.”

Fans can watch the new gameplay trailer below, thanks to an early morning upload from Bethesda on the company’s official YouTube page.

Fans who pre-order Prey will receive the exclusive Cosmonaut Shotgun Pack. The pre-order bonus consists of Morgan Yu’s family heirloom Margrave shotgun and tools to fight threats aboard Talos I including: three Neuromods players can spend to acquire new abilities, two Medkits, a Fabrication plan to create the Shotgun and Ammo, a starter kit for building tools and weapons, and a unique upgrade to help players preserve their limited resources.
