Prey Is Fixed, Finally (Well, At Least The Save Corruption, Anyway)


Bethesda and Arkane Studios's Prey has had a pretty interesting time since launch. While the console version of the game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One has been fully playable since launch, the PC version has been riddled with bugs. Well, that has finally changed, at least in terms of the save file corruption issues.

Prey's update 1.2 returns save files to an uncorrupted state and erects barriers designed to prevent save game files from becoming corrupted in the future. The patch features nine core changes across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, including a fix for the game's latency issues on PS4.

The save file corruption errors are indeed gone, but the were a major factor that led to the game's poor critical reception, including my own.

Not that save file corruption was the only issue plaguing Prey. Other problems included Bethesda's own reviews policy, as well as the ability to speed-run the game in under six minutes.

So yes, the game has problems. It's a flawed piece of programming, but it is now totally playable on PC. And it only took them about two weeks to fix it, so that's not too bad. Should it have been playable at launch? Yes. But at least it's something.
