Prey PC Requirements
Prey releases on May 5th, 2017

Here we go! With just over a week until the game launches, it makes sense the Prey PC requirements would be revealed. In addition, we also have the graphics options players can tinker with. Let’s take a look at the hardware you’ll need to run Arkane Studios’ latest game.

GPU: GTX 660 2GB, AMD Radeon 7850 2GB

CPU: Intel i7-2600K, AMD FX-8350

PC Advanced Settings

  • Object Detail
  • Shadow Quality
  • Texture Quality

Not overwhelmingly comprehensive however, it does give PC gamers a ballpark estimate whether or not their rigs can handle it. It’s also nice that Arkane revealed the graphics settings players can tweak within the game.

Prey releases on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on May 5th, 2017. If you’re not sure whether you’ll be picking it up, or you just don’t know much about it, I’d read the official description here:

In Prey, you awaken aboard Talos I, a space station orbiting the moon in the year 2032. You are the key subject of an experiment meant to alter humanity forever – but things have gone terribly wrong. The space station has been overrun by hostile aliens and you are now being hunted. As you dig into the dark secrets of Talos I and your own past, you must survive using the tools found on the station — your wits, weapons, and mind-bending abilities. The fate of the Talos I and everyone aboard is in your hands.
