Looking to play Prey without spending money on it to see how the game fares? Well, if you do, there’s good news in that Bethesda and Arkane Studios will be releasing a playable demo that will let folks around and about explore a snippet of what Prey has to offer.
But there’s a catch, the demo will only be for Xbox One and PS4. It doesn’t really make sense why the demo won’t be for PC seeing that Bethesda released both Doom’s demo and deathmatch beta via Steam for PC player to partake in well before the game released for the public to consume.
In addition to the above, this situation has me a bit worried in that Arkane Studios could have pulled another Dishonored 2 conundrum insofar that the PC port runs like crap on all kinds of PC rigs, which would be terrible for everyone involved. Hopefully that’s not the case, but if you are on PC you won’t be able to play the game early like those who are on Xbox One and PS4.
Now that that is out of the way, the official trailer showing the demo sits below. The near one minute long video trailer runs through quick scenes showing Prey, which comes in by Bethesda Softworks‘ channel.
If you want more information on Prey and what the demo will have you doing, the official Bethesda website has the description for the aforesaid below:
“Available April 27 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Prey Demo: Opening Hour puts you in the role of Morgan Yu at the very start of the game. Your first day on the job quickly takes a dark turn, with aliens hunting down any surviving crewmembers, including you. Should the Typhon reach Earth, life as you know it will end. So slip into your TranStar uniform and download the demo in order to stop the alien invasion and save humanity.”
If Prey seems interesting to you, the game will release across PC, Xbox One and PS4 on May 5th. The demo is set to release on April 27th and will be for Xbox One and PS4.
