Arkane Studios and Bethesda have released a new Prey patch. The v1.2 update fixes the corrupted save games and the infinite material Recycler glitch, among other things. The patch is currently out only on Steam, with the console update coming some time next week.
Prey got a new update, to version 1.2. For now, the patch is only out on Steam for the PC version. The patches for the consoles should come out next week, according to a Bethesda forum post. We’ll let you know as soon as the console patch is out.
The update fixes some very major problems that plagued the game. The two main issues it addresses is the save games getting corrupted and the infinite material creation glitch during Recycling. Now, your saves shouldn’t become corrupted anymore, which is great news. However, we’ll have to say goodbye to our good friend Recycler glitch. I’m sure many will fondly remember all those neuromods and other stuff they crafted thanks to it.
The patch also takes care of some other problems, such as getting stuck, collision issues caused by the glue gun, and other fixes. You can check out the Prey v1.2 full patch notes below. Be advised, there are some (very mild) Prey spoilers in them. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
