Aspyr Media Ships Prey for PowerPC- and Intel-Based Macs

January 17, 2007

AUSTIN, Texas – Aspyr Media, Inc. today announced the Mac version of Prey™ has shipped to retail outlets nationwide. The title was developed for the Mac by Aspyr Studios, Aspyr’s internal development team, under license from 2K, a Take-Two Interactive Software publishing label.

Prey is a groundbreaking first-person shooter that turns the genre upside-down with new gameplay features and next generation graphics. Breaking the traditional first-person shooter format, Prey introduces innovative gameplay elements including wall-walking, portals, spirit-walking and gravity flipping, which allows for insane eight player deathmatches.

Prey tells the story of Tommy, a Cherokee garage mechanic stuck on a reservation and going nowhere. His life changes when an otherworldly crisis forces him to awaken spiritual powers from his long-forgotten birthright. Abducted along with his people to a menacing mothership orbiting Earth, he sets out to save himself and his girlfriend and ultimately his planet.

Multiplayer support for Prey provided by GameRanger. GameRanger 4.6.3, released on January 9, 2007, required. Free download available at http://www.gameranger.com/.

Prey is rated “M” for “Mature” by the ESRB. For more information, fans can visit Aspyr’s site, http://www.aspyr.com/product/info/67, or Prey’s official site, www.prey.com.
