A few months ago, Bethesda teased a Moon-related announcement for Prey, but then went silent. It seems like an expansion is imminent because the game’s achievement list was updated on Steam and they tease just that. Lashman, a revered industry insider and generally lovely bloke, broke the story on Twitter.
The Prey reboot wasn’t the resounding commercial success Bethesda hoped for, but that doesn’t mean we won’t see new content from the franchise in the future. A few months ago, Pete Hines, the company’s Senior Vice President of Marketing, said “I don’t think you’ve heard the last of Prey. I just couldn’t tell you precisely when you might hear more.” Hopefully the publisher will reveal the expansion before E3 2018 now that we know it exists. Why else would the team add new achievements?

Prey was one of the most underrated games of 2017, but it wasn’t a completely pleasant experience on base consoles. The game looked rather blurry and ran poorly on the base Xbox One. Hopefully the developer will take advantage of the Xbox One X this time around.
In our review, we called Prey “an unforgettable… horror game that’s dark, deep and dizzying.” Hopefully Bethesda can find ways for it to appeal to more gamers whenever the franchise reemerges. You can purchase the base game for roughly $20 at the moment, so give it a go if you haven’t already.
