The next update for Prey: Mooncrash goes live on December 11, introducing the new Typhon Hunter asymmetrical multiplayer mode, as well as the TranStar VR single-player escape room.
Typhon Hunter has one player taking the role of Morgan Yu while five other people each play as one of Prey's lovable shapeshifting blobs of black goo. Judging by the title, the goal of each side will, most likely, be that of murdering the opposition. Typhon Hunter will also receive VR support in an update set to arrive early next year.
TranStar VR is "set just days before the events of Prey" and has players "solving puzzles in some of the most memorable locations on Talos I".
Furthermore, it will include the TranStar Museum, which is inspired by the museum found in Talos I's lobby. "From spacesuits and Neuromods, to weapons and several Typhon aliens, this is your chance to get a very up-close-and-personal look at some of the most memorable props from the game. While in the museum, you can also take an interactive tour and learn about the history of TranStar and Talos I, all told through a TranStar lens, of course. ", the blurb on the game's website reads.
Encountering the Typhon was nerve-wracking enough when they were controlled by AI, so facing five other players disguised as chairs and bananas around Prey's Talos I station is sure to produce some interesting situations.
