A new trailer for the upcoming shooter Prey, titled Typhon Research, just released today. This cinematic trailer focuses on each species of Typhon — the aliens within Prey. It explains what each species can do, and their relative danger to humans.

There are four known different species of Typhon, all discovered through the “introduction of human test subjects”. However, there are likely more species out there that we haven’t seen yet. In this trailer, we got a visceral look at three of these species. Here’s what we know:

01: Mimic

These spider-like creatures are the progenitor (evolutionary beginning point) of the Typhon species. Their nickname is derived from their ability to polymorph into inanimate objects of similar mass, and lay in wait and ambush their prey.

02: Phantom

These are “hybrids of Typhon DNA and a human’s corpse.” While they may think in a similar style to humans, they have deadly claws and a ranged kinetic sphere which detonates on impact.

03: Telepath

These Typhons are, as you guessed from the name, telepathic — making them one of the most dangerous species due to these psychic abilities. They can control weaker-willed organisms by using a powerful psychic wave. This wave can be nullified by using a personal psychic nullwave device.

That’s all we’re able to gather from this new trailer. 

If you pre-order Prey, you’ll get access to the “Cosmonaut Shotgun Pack” –which gets you a Margrave Shotgun and ammo plans, 2 medkits, 1 recycler shielding chipset, starter fabrication materials, and 3 transtar neuromods. That’ll be pretty helpful when you’re facing off against the nasty Typhons we’ve seen in this reveal.

Prey, developed by Arkane Studios, is due out on May 5, 2017 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
