Action Role-Playing video games (also known as RPG or ARPG) are a subgenre of role-playing video games that tend to focus on action and fighting instead of level progressing and planning. Action RPG often incorporates various elements from action games and even from action-adventure games. Big part of this genre are also so-called “Diablo clones” or hack & slash games.
The typical action RPG focuses mainly on combat, at the cost of simplifying (or removing) all non-combat attributes and statistics. Additionally, combat always takes place in the real-time system and relies on the player's ability to perform particular actions with optimal speed and accuracy. All top action RPGs tend to focus more on the collection of randomized treasure (or loot) than story progression that is found in other types of role-playing games.
Every PC gamer will find the best Action RPGs on Games Republic. Only top titles!Prey is an FPS action-adventure game developed by Austin (a branch of the Arkane Studios) and published by Bethesda. The game was released in May 2017 for all main platforms (PC, PlayStation, Xbox).
In Prey, players take control over Morgan Yu and explore the massive space station, Talos I. Talos I is a place where research into a hostile alien race (called the Typhon) is performed. When the Typhon escape their confinement, players must use a variety of weapons and super-human abilities (derived from the Typhon) to avoid being killed by the aliens and escape the station. The station is presented as a semi-open world, with progression through the areas possible after obtaining certain abilities or key items. In that regard, Prey is somewhat similar in nature to a Metroidvania game.
Arkane's Prey is a remake (although word re-imagining describes it better) of the original 2006’s Prey. 2017’s Prey took the place of Prey 2, a long-planned sequel to the original game that was canceled in 2014. Arkane's version does not use any of the planned sequel’s assets, and only incorporates the name and the broad theme of the hero being hunted by aliens. Prey is often described as a spiritual sequel to the legendary System Shock.
Prey is one hell of a game and offers a fantastic gaming experience. Get your own copy at Games Republic and fight for survival aboard the Talos I station.Hide
