Survival horror is a subgenre of action-adventure video games heavily inspired by horror fiction. It is typically focused on the character’s survival as the game continuously tries to scare him/her with either graphics or sound effects. Although combat can be an integral part of the gameplay, the player is rarely in control of it (unlike in the typical action game). The reasons behind this are limited ammunition, poor vision, and various other obstructions preventing player's interaction with the in-game world. The player also needs to find certain items which then allow him/her to unlock the path to new areas and therefore make progress in the game. Survival horror makes use of many horror themes (e.g. dark maze-like environment, unexpected attacks from enemies, and dynamic music).
The franchises like Resident Evil, Silent Hill, and Alone in the Dark are considered to be the best survival horror video games of all time.
Do you like to be afraid? Games Republic has survival horror games for every PC and console gamer.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
