Another gameplay video shares a better perspective on the abilities you’ll get.
This time it’s a 4-minute-long gameplay video that presents abilities and powers of our main character, Morgan Yu. He or she (it’s your choice) will be able to use human skills like hacking and repair, but in the course of the events of Prey you will be granted with the option to learn some new tricks from the alien race called the Typhon.
It will have consequences, however. As a more human hero you can use turrets and other defenses. As a more alien character you won’t be recognised. With great power comes grat bullet-sponge.
