Meet the New Tommy, Same as the Old Tommy, in Prey 2

The first screenshot of Domasi "Tommy" Towadi in Prey 2 is out and it doesn't look like life on a tough alien world has changed him very much.

There were a few raised eyebrows following the first look at the upcoming Prey 2, when it came out that Tommy, the hero of the original Prey, would not be the Big Man With a Gun in Prey 2. That role will instead fall to a guy named Killian Samuels, a U.S. Marshal who was aboard the passenger jet that famously crashed into the Sphere and who now makes a living as a bounty hunter - and, he thinks, the only human - on the planet known as Exodus.

But as the great man once said, there is another! It turns out that Tommy is also on Exodus, although what he's doing there is anybody's guess, and eventually he and Killian hook up to rock the world. This isn't exactly news - it was revealed back in June at E3 - but now we can finally see what he looks like on this new, alien world.

And the new Tommy looks an awful lot like the old Tommy, with the same haircut, same jeans and same jacket he was sporting in the first game. It might seem a bit unfair that the new guy is loaded out like a super-cyber-bounty hunter of the future while Tommy hasn't even been able to change his pants in the last five years [and those jeans do seem to be holding up remarkably well] but he did manage to take down the eternal, star-spanning Sphere in those duds, so maybe it's for the best that nothing comes between him and his Calvins.

A full-size shot of Tommy's first appearance is up on the Prey 2 Facebook page. Prey 2 is currently in development at Human Head Studios and scheduled for launch in March 2012 for the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
