Arkane Studios recently launched a new update for Prey and it looks like players are going to like what the developer has in store in the update as it adds one feature that fans have been looking for since the game’s launch. Here’s everything that Prey update 1.04 adds to the game.
PlayStation 4 Pro Support
Prey was criticized by the community as the game’s box art states that the game supports a few enhancements for the PlayStation 4 Pro, but it was later on discovered that the feature was non-existent. With Prey update 1.04, Arkane Studios finally adds PlayStation 4 Pro support. The update makes the following visual upgrades for the PlayStation 4 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
- Particle refraction enabled
Basically, players are going to get improved visuals now once they download Prey update 1.04 and play it on Sony’s 4K console. They can expect to see more detailed and defined objects in the game once the update is up and running.
There was a lot of criticisms for Arkane Studios for not actually adding in PlayStation 4 Pro Support for the game at launch. Digital Foundry previously stated that the visuals, frame-rate, and resolution was exactly the same between the PS4 and PlayStation 4 Pro versions at launch.
Aside from this, Arkane Studios also has a few more tweaks and fixes coming with the new update, so it benefits even those without a PlayStation 4 Pro. Some of which are new and additional fixes for the PlayStation 4 input drift that would assure smoother playthroughs.
The update adds in several bug fixes to the game. First up is a fix that prevents missions from breaking if players use Glooing Cook between objectives. Another notable fix is that ‘Nightmare Is Hunting You’ no longer player after players complete ‘Copy Protection,’ unless players have the Typhon Neuromods installed.
There are a lot of other fixes in the bugs that sorts out issues with many missions in the game. It includes a fix that enables the Disgruntled Employee mission to be completed if player finds Grant Lockwood before initiating the mission. As for tweaks, Sarah Elazar will now give players the code for Cargo Bay B even if the player has hostility from Phantoms. You can view the full patch notes here.
