The newest trailer for Prey shows off the ability to make your character mimic almost any object on the Talos station.

Arkane’s take on Prey is getting closer to release all the time. The game casts you as Morgan Yu, the subject of an experiment that will change humanity forever. But while you are aboard the Talos I space station, you are confronted with an alien infestation that you must fend off. You’ll have weapons at your disposal, but you’ll also get some pretty crazy abilities to use – for example, the Mimic Matter power.

Mimic Matter, Arkane says, allows you to “to take the form of just about any appropriately sized object aboard Talos I.” At first, you’ll be limited to small objects, like a coffee mug or a banana. But as you level up and make this ability more powerful, you’ll become able to mimic more complex objects, even taking the form of turrets and security robots.

We’re sure to see more about Yu’s unique abilities as the release of Prey draws nearer. Prey is set to launch on Friday, May 5, for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
