In Prey, you awaken aboard Talos I, a space station orbiting the moon in the year 2032. You are the key subject of an experiment meant to alter humanity forever - but things have gone terribly wrong. The space station has been overrun by hostile aliens and you are now being hunted. As you dig into the dark secrets of Talos I and your own past, you must survive using the tools found on the station, your wits, weapons, and mind-bending abilities.
In the late 1950s, man first began to reach for the stars. Unfortunately in Prey's alternate history, the first thing we grabbed hold of was an alien menace called the Typhon. This one small, shadow-like creature proved so hostile to humanity's existence that our world's greatest minds locked the creature away inside an orbital space station. Flash forward nearly 70 years, and that small orbital "prison" has grown into a monolithic research facility owned by the mega-corporation TranStar - and that single Typhon has evolved into an entire race of monstrous creatures that could haunt a generation of nightmares. Join us as we take a deeper look into the abilities and behaviors of Prey's devious new enemies.
Cystoids are the smallest Typhon creatures that players encounter in Prey, but their size can be deceptively disarming. About the size of a softball, these creatures make up for their diminutive size with some explosive firepower, and these little firecrackers tend to travel in packs and live in Cystoid Nests. Cystoids aren't deep thinkers, so the second they sense movement, they take off on a Kamikaze mission that ends in a tiny explosion. Fortunately, Cystoids kill themselves when they explode, so as long as players are aware of their surroundings, they can easily deal with these nests by tossing a random object in their direction.
Arkane's Take: "They have the smallest minds," says lead designer Ricardo Bare. "They're like a creature - like a fish - they're very simple. They're placed in these nests almost like mines, and they're attracted to motion - anything like a physics object or a player running past them. [Outside of zero g], they roll on the ground like a carpet of soccer balls chasing you."
