  • Playstation 4: May 5th, midnight by territory
  • Xbox One: May 5th, midnight by territory
  • PC: May 4th, 9PM PDT/ May 5th, midnight EDT

Prey PC System Requirements

If you’re interested in playing Prey on a PC, you’ll be happy to know the system requirements. Of course, seeing how things went with Dishonored 2 on PC, we highly recommend you wait for the reviews instead of preordering.

  • 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

The game doesn’t seem to demanding, judging from these specs. The minimum is a pretty standard thing, while the recommended seems to be built using the most popular high-end components. That doesn’t mean it won’t be buggy, so beware. Keep in mind you’ll also need around 40GB of hard drive space to install the game.
