Prey: Mooncrash update celebrates Arkane's favorite roguelikes and roguelites

This one flew under the radar when it was announced (opens in new tab) several days back, but in case you also missed it, the Mooncrash (opens in new tab) expansion for Prey (opens in new tab) received a free update called Rogue Moon. It's a tribute to some of Arkane's favorite games in the indie roguelike/roguelite/general permadeath space, adding new operator skins themed on Darkest Dungeon, Dead Cells, Spelunky, Don't Starve, Rogue Legacy, and Risk of Rain.

In a nice touch they've also shared a blog post (opens in new tab) in which members of the team talk about each game and why they love them, and in some cases how they served as inspiration for Mooncrash.

Thanks, RPS (opens in new tab).
