Prey 2 teaser enhanced by MORE COWBELL

Perhaps you’ve seen the Prey 2 live-action teaser that posted today? It’s pretty awesome, yet its live action “Cloverfield on a Plane” approach seems to be operating under the faulty assumption we can clearly remember the events of a game we played half a decade ago. To better serve this anxiously awaited sequel, we went ahead and spiced it up using one of the original Prey’s most iconic moments. Please people, “Don’t Fear the Reaper...”

Tee hee! Okay, that's a joke only those who've played 2006's Prey will understand... the rest of you will just have to take our word that it's one of the most memorable scenes of the last five years. I've posted the original teaser below, which I loved, but still found frustrating because I can't really see how it ties into the original at all. Hence my improved video above!

    I just realized if you hold your cursor over the video it says "Got a fever? The only prescription is more GR custom vids" More "More Cowbell" references ftw.

    Wow. . .

    Excellent, that really added to it! And the opening to Prey is one of the greatest gaming moments ever. @TheSplund: I think the press release confirmed that it would be on PC too. Bethesda are good at putting their games on PC, and rightly so.

    Love it - I need some more of that cowbell! I feared that Prey 2 had vanished forever as it'd dropped off the radar for a while now (I was only looking for news a couple of days ago). My only concern now is 'will it be on the PC?'.

    I got a fever... And the only prescription... Is more great GR videos! Cool idea Chris.

    (Yes, loved the scene XD Really bugs me that Prey was better played, or better liked. Here's hoping 2 fixes this...)
  • Ariaka - March 17, 2011 3:16 a.m.

    MORE awesome =4
  • Fuzunga - March 17, 2011 2:11 a.m.

    Wow. You weren't kidding!

    Damn brilliant! Is "Don't Fear the Reaper" going to be the new "Guile's Theme" for Live Action Video Game trailers? I sure hope so.
  • Bobbety - March 16, 2011 10:53 p.m.

    That is so good!

    I loved the first Prey so much. One of the first games I got on my Xbox. I GOTS TO SEE MORE SPACE SPHINCTERS.

  • AwesomeMan - March 16, 2011 8:48 p.m.

    Wow, I'm not gonna lie, that really added to the trailer in a big way...the silence and screaming was powerful but putting it to BOC was amazing. Good one
