Bethesda has announced that a free trial for PREY will be available in a few hours. According to the press release, and starting today, the critically acclaimed game from Arkane Studios will be available as a PC trial for the first-time ever. Bethesda did not reveal how many levels will be available or for how long PC gamers will be able to play this free trial.
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.
PREY is a pretty interesting game that is powered by CRYENGINE. Thankfully, and despite some minor optimization issues, this title runs great on a variety of PC configurations. You can read our PC Performance Analysis here.
