Prey Launch Day Patch Detailed

Prey Demo

Prey is due to finally launch this Friday May 5th, and as seems to be the standard in this day and age, it comes equipped with a day one patch.

Weighing in at 1.3 GB, it’s not going to break the bandwidth but it will bring a range of tweaks and fixes to the launch day release. Sections where enemies were reported to be  shooting through walls among other minor glitches have been solved. Along with a range of audio problems and visual effects. Check out the full patch notes below:
