While Prey itself is set to release across PC, PS4 and Xbox One, only the latter two platforms will receive the demo for unnamed reasons, which currently has a lot of people wondering if Bethesda and Arkane Studios are covering up a bad PC port. What is known is that everyone will be able to play Prey on May 5th, while a demo for PS4 and Xbox One is available right now.
Prey’s demo trailer for the “Opening Hour” is boasting a noticeable amount of dislikes, which comes in as no surprise given that only so many people can play or test the demo and not all of the fans across every platform.
Quite a bit of comments on Prey’s demo trailer are surfacing that may seem extreme to some but fair to others, as seen below.
As seen above, those comments were made within minutes and managed to garner some noticeable likes in that people are very leery about the PC port of Prey. Now I know some may say that only time will tell whether the PC port is good or not, but this could have a substantial impact on both Bethesda and Arkane Studios’ image.
I mean the game in general should perform well across PC, PS4 and Xbox One, but to exclude a certain platform and provide no rhyme or reason as to why there’s no demo for said platform has not only me, but many other gamers worried, too — worried that another Dishonored 2 conundrum could be right around the corner.
I know I’ve given this a lot of thought and it may come across as jacking on the game/devs, but this situation of no demo for PC is pretty much reinforcing that another Dishonored 2 case is imminent, because like with Doom, gamers and fans alike received a demo and Beta across all platforms — although that was id Software, we still have the same publisher behind Prey.
Anyway, the game is set to launch on May 5th for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The demo is only available for PS4 and Xbox One, which a trailer accompanying the “Opening Hour” demo comes in by Bethesda Softworks.
