of Human Head's sci-fi shooter:
New York, NY – June 28, 2006 – 2K, a
publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), and 3D
Realms today announced the first-person shooter Prey has gone to gold master and
will be available in North America on July 11th and in Europe on July 14th.
Developed by Human Head Studios under the direct supervision of 3D Realms, Prey
will be available for Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from
Microsoft and PC in both a regular edition and a Limited Collector's Edition.
The demo for the PC version of Prey is currently available for download, with an
Xbox 360 demo available soon.
"Prey raises the bar for first-person shooters and is a must-have game for the
summer," said Christoph Hartmann, President, 2K. "Its unique features, crisp
graphics and in-depth storyline make it a truly revolutionary game."
Prey is a groundbreaking first-person shooter that turns the genre upside-down

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.
"We are proud to continue our tradition of releasing innovative and dynamic
games for the PC and console game markets," said Timothy Gerritsen, CEO, Human
Head Studios, Incorporated. "Prey is the culmination of nearly five years work
to bring a truly innovative product to a first- person shooter market clamoring
for something new."
"Prey's greatest message is that a commitment to quality, polish and unique
gameplay is a sure-fire way to build a brand and one we strongly believe will
have staying power for years to come," said Scott Miller, CEO, 3D Realms. "We
believe Prey will be a major hit for gamers worldwide."
