New Prey Update Arrives on PlayStation 4- Coming to PC/Xbox One Soon
It has nearly been a month since the Prey reboot has launched, and it has been off to a decent start. While everything has been okay for the most part, a few concerns have popped up. According to players, one of the main issues plaguing the title has been input lag. Another problem for some has been the lack of PlayStation 4 Pro support. Well, with the latest Prey update that has been released, these issues and more have been fixed. First, let’s check out what has been improved with the PS4 Pro:
- Enable Screen-Space Reflections
- Higher quality shadows
- Improved texture appearance
- More texture memory (stable streaming)
- Anisotropy 16x (from 4x)
- Improved visual fidelity
- Less LOD usage
- Dynamic lights show up further
- Particles are allowed to draw more pixels per effect
The notes for Update v. 1.04 were announced by Bethesda on Reddit, and they include a myriad of solutions. When fully grown, Superfruit won’t be flat anymore, cutscene times have been adjusted, Aaron Ingram won’t flee when released, and much more have been addressed in this patch. The Prey update is available on PlayStation right now, while players on PC and Xbox One will have to wait until later in the week to benefit from the fixes listed below. Here’s everything that is being tweaked:
