Tommy Returns in Prey 2, Is “Integral To the Story”
Just because Prey 1 protagonist Tommy has been replaced with a whole new playable character in Prey 2 doesn’t mean that the folks at Human Head have forgotten about him. To the contrary, in fact — they’re bringing him back and giving him a new role to play in the new game.
“He’s a character that you encounter many times throughout the game,” said Human Head’s Christ Rhinehart to IGN. “It’s not just a single cameo where he shows up and takes off. He’s integral to the story and events on Exodus. One of the big things is, the unique abilities that Tommy has, specifically spirit walk and death walk, are integral to his role and how he actually fits into the story.”
I had sort of been thinking that Prety 2 was a sequel in name only. Good to hear that’s probably not the case.
