The main protagonist from the first game will still be in the sequel and has a very critical role to play. Why change the main guy then ? Well, the developers wanted you to experience the breadth of the World they were creating and the new mechanics and open world gameplay would achieve that.
In Prey 2‘s recent preview at IGN, Human Head’s Chris Rhinehart revealed the importance of the old hero.
He’s a character that you encounter many times throughout the game. 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.
He was part of the plan right from the start but developer held the information just for a little surprise.
When we started we didn’t want to reveal Tommy initially. We wanted to hold it back and make it a surprise for people that Tommy is still an important part of the game, said Rhinehart.
So, Tommy is Back! Anyone excited by the prospects ?
