    2K Games Announces Prey Pre-Order Program!

    2K Games today announced an incentive based Pre-Order program and Limited Collector's Edition for Prey for PC and the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

    The Limited Collector's Edition is available for both the Xbox 360™ and PC editions of Prey and includes a special metal packaging upgrade, two die-cast pewter figurines including the lead character Tommy and the alien Hunter, a free download to a Prey soundtrack, and "The Art of Prey" book featuring collected conceptual and development images from the artists behind Prey. In addition, the PC Limited Collector’s Edition will include an upgrade to DVD media from CD-ROM.

    Customers who pre-order either the Limited Collector’s Edition or standard edition of Prey on either Xbox 360 or PC will receive a die-cast pewter figurine of Mutate. The Mutate is a melding of the DNA of human and alien victims of the living Sphere, possessing a massive claw that it uses in-game to impale its enemies in a spinning attack. All four versions of Prey will be released simultaneously this July.

    The Prey Limited Collector’s Edition is a single production run available on a first-come, first-served basis. Both the Limited Collector’s Edition and the Pre-Order program are available while supplies last at participating retailers.

    Customers who have previously pre-ordered Prey are automatically “grandfathered” into the incentive based Pre-Order program. Prey is developed by Human Head Studios and Venom Games and produced by 3D Realms. For more information on Prey and a list of participating retailers, please visit www.prey.com.
