Tour the “superb sandbox” that’s the Talos I area station in newest Prey trailer

No Comments

Prey builders Arkane have launched a video exploring Talos I, the area station struggling an unlucky case of alien invasion of their newest immersive sim.

Check out a couple of different superb sandboxes within the best sandbox games on PC.

Talos I is a surprisingly numerous place for an area station. Lead programs designer Seth Shain describes it as “an amazing sandbox. We have a huge diversity of locations, from things that feel like corporate offices, dormitories, industrial areas, and then you can go outside the station and float around in zero G.”

Lead designer Ricardo Bare says the station is “built in layers, kind of like an onion”, with the outer ranges all about TranStar, the company that owns it, exhibiting off to their visitors. The digital camera swoops by attractive wood-pannelled theatres, atriums with marble and gold statues, artwork deco eating places, and even health suites with swimming swimming pools.

But in an area station, as lead visible designer Manu Petit explains, sq. footage is the last word luxurious: and there is a beautiful shot of a clifftop villa contained in a glass dome, the celebrities past. Perhaps an govt’s mansion? A VIP lodge? 

But after all, “it’s not all the shiny veneer of the corporation,” says lead designer Ricardo Bare. “The space station is built in layers, kind of like an onion. And the closer to the centre you go, the more you get to the actual reason why the space station is there. You get to the laboratories and the secret stuff they don’t want everyone to know about.” In the depths of the area station, issues are extra claustrophobic and utilitarian, with leaking pipes and defective scientific tools.

Prey is out on May 5. Check the Steam web page for extra data, the place pre-orders are now live and can set you again £39.99 ($59.99).
