Prey is launching next week, but you can download a demo and play the “Opening Hour” right now on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

The demo lets you play through Morgan Yu’s first day aboard the space station Talos I as you deal with a new alien threat. Like Mass Effect, you can choose between a male or female Morgan. The demo is about 13 GB on both Xbox One and PS4.

Prey is coming to PC, but no demo is available yet. Hopefully the lack of a PC demo doesn’t speak to any problems with the PC version of the game. A representative told Polygon, “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.”

Publisher Bethesda also revealed the full achievement list, including story spoilers. You’ve been warned!

The final PC System requirements are also available:


  • CPU: Intel i5-2400, AMD FX-8320
  • GPU: GTX 660 2GB, AMD Radeon 7850 2GB
  • Memory: 8 GB

The PS4 version will require 42 GB of space, while the Xbox One will require 38 GB. Both versions will receive a day one patch which will require additional space.

Prey is developed by Arkane Studios, makers of the Dishonored series. It serves as a reboot of the 2006 Prey, and a spiritual successor to System Shock. It will feature first-person action and focus on story-telling and atmosphere.

If you pre-ordered, you can pre-load Prey as early as Midnight on April 27 (Xbox), April 28 (PS4) and May 3 (PC). Prey launches at midnight on May 5.
