Prey vs. The Surge
The month of May is a pretty good one for sci-fi fans. Whether you enjoy action RPG gameplay or first-person shooters, there’s a game available for your enjoyment. In particular, the two games we’ll be looking at today are Prey and The Surge. Prey is a reboot of the popular sci-fi shooter series, so you won’t need any knowledge of the original games to enjoy it. Prey was developed by Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks, and it follows the story of Morgan Yu as he or she tries to find out exactly what happened on the mysterious Talos I space station. There are also aliens.
The Surge is the latest game from Deck13 Interactive, and it’s an action RPG. Instead of dealing with alien threats in the far-flung future, The Surge has more of a dystopian world that could possibly come to fruition in the very near future. As a CREO employee on the first day of the job, Warren finds that disaster has struck his workplace, and hostile robots are attacking him. His fellow colleagues have also turned into husks of their former selves, and are now hostile.
We’re going to be taking a look the settings and stories of both games, and their gameplay aspects to help you decide which game you should purchase this month.
