Tommy Returns to Prey… Sort Of

Why Can’t We Have You Instead?

Yep, that’s him. Seriously, no, that’s Tommy right there. I know! Crazy, right?

Most fans of the 2006 dimension-bending shooter were not only disappointed to find out that our frustrated Cherokee hero was not to return in Prey 2 wielding wrench in hand, but also downright perplexed. With federal air marshal Killian Samuels (no amount of aspirin can take away the pain that name brings to me) taking centre stage in next year’s sequel, inexplicably a bounty hunter and sole human on the alien dystopia of Blade Runner Los Angeles Exodus, what exactly did the sequel have to do with the first game aside from bearing its name?

Well, with this freshly baked screenshot as evidence, it turns out that Tommy will indeed make an appearance as actually-the-second-human-on-Exodus; alas, he’ll be returning as an NPC and, presumably, will be pivotal in Killian “I have a ridiculous name” Samuels’ struggle to regain his memory. (Yeah, they’re doing that one.)

Our fingers remain crossed that Prey‘s change of protagonist, setting and genre will not prove a wasteful transition. Maybe we’ll get to play as Tommy after all? Oh, go on. At least think about it?
