A free demo of Prey is now available to download on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, allowing players to experience the first hour of the game.
Prey is Arkane Studios’ latest game, and although it is a reboot of the 2006 game of the same name, this title seems more a spiritual successor to the System Shock and Bioshock series’ than anything else.
Taking place on a research facility in space, players take the role of scientist Morgan Wu, a male or female depending on the player’s preference (an option which is also available in the demo). The spaceship is awash with aliens, however, and so it’s your role to make sure they don’t take over the whole facility and make it back to planet Earth.
The game launches Friday 5th May on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, however Arkane Studios decided not to give PC users access to the first hour. Polygon contacted the developer and its response was: We appreciate the enthusiasm in the PC community for Prey, and the interest in a PC demo. The team at Arkane has been fully focused on optimizing and finalizing the PC version of the game. We aim to deliver the best PC experience to our fans — and are hard at work to do just that.”
