Prey PC System Requirements Aren't Too Steep

The game will be available to start preloading on Xbox One today and PS4 tomorrow. PC players will need to wait until May 3.


Morgan Yu is slowly approaching is date with destiny and the Typhons on May 5, so Bethesda has released the system specifications for PC users so players can make sure they have what it take to take back Talos I with few performance issues.

The specs aren't too cumbersome:


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


  • CPU: Intel i7-2600K, AMD FX-8350
  • GPU: GTX 970 4GB, AMD R9 290 4GB
  • Memory: 16 GB

If you have the better graphics card, Bethesda has also released the different "advanced settings" you will be able to tweak in the game as well:

  • Object Detail
  • Shadow Quality
  • Texture Quality
  • Anisotropic Filtering
  • Anti-Aliasing
  • Horizontal Field of View
  • Screen Space Directional Occlusion
  • Screen Space Reflections

You don't have to worry about console spec, except for hard drive space, so set aside 42GB on your PS4 and 38GB on Xbox One, which should cover the download, the launch day patch (yes, there will be one), and all future DLC.

The game will be available for pre-load today on Xbox One and tomorrow on PS4, while PC users will need to wait until May 3 to start their early download. The game will unlock at midnight by territory on console and at midnight Eastern on PC.

If you want to get a look at the first hour of the game, Bethesda also released a demo today for consoles only. But don't despair, PC folks. You did get your system specs.
