Whoaaaaa. Turns out that Morgan Yu, the protagonist in Arkane’s upcoming Prey reboot, is not necessarily Mr Morgan Yu. A new trailer for the game reveals – for the first time – that you can play as either a male or female character as you make your way through this alternate future.
If things look a bit familiar, there’s a good reason. This is the same trailer that was shown off at Gamescom in August, but this time, Morgan is female.
While this choice won’t change the story or how you interact with the world – because Morgan Yu is Morgan Yu, and he or she will be defined by the choices you make – it’s yet another way that Arkane is saying yes to the player.
I’ll admit, I was kinda hoping for some male/female specific storylines, but I’m happy enough that I can choose to play Morgan as a character of either gender. Thanks, Bethesda!
Prey was revealed at this year’s E3, and is in development at Arkane Austin, due for release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One some time in 2017.
