There Is No Prey 2017 PC Demo Because Steam Refund Is “Like A Demo Already”
Prey 2017 release is just around the corner and gamers are excited to see what the game has to offer. Before the game releases players can check out the demo to decide whether they want the game, however, the demo is only available for consoles and now the studio has revealed the reason why Prey 2017 PC demo was not released.
Speaking with Ausgamers, co-creative director at the studio, Colantonio, explained that the reason why Prey 2017 PC demo did not release was because of the resources the studio had to manage. He added that Steam’s refund policy is like a demo already.
We couldn’t do a demo on both the console and on the PC, we had to choose. And besides, PC has Steam. Steam players can just return the game [prior to playing] 2 hours so it’s like a demo already.
Speaking about the PC version of Prey 2017, Arkane Studios has assured that the PC version of the game will not suffer as Dishonored 2 did at launch.
This time we are, given what happened with Dishonored 2, we doubled our thoroughness in making sure that the game is going to run smoothly. At this point the game is fully ready, but that’s what we’ve been doing for the past months–a lot of tests on different configurations and making sure it works. So we’re pretty confident. You never know. But we’re pretty confident.
Furthermore, Arkane Studios has said that given that Prey 2017 will have multiple endings but for the sequel, any one of these endings can be considered canon. According to Arkane’s Raphael Colantonio, “I think it’s possible for any of the endings to work” when asked about which game ending will be considered cannon.
Prey is an upcoming first-person action-adventure game in development at Arkane Studios and is scheduled to launch on May 5, 2017, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
