Arkane Studios has just pushed out a new patch for Prey on PC, and it addresses a lot of the game’s glaring problems. The most notable fix is the one for the bug that corrupts players’ save files, rendering the game literally unplayable. In addition to that, the crafting material duplication exploit has also been patched out, so that means you’ll have to play the game fairly now, without cheating your way to survival. You can check out the full patch notes down below:
- Fix to prevent Save games from becoming corrupted. Fix also returns corrupted Save games to uncorrupted state. (Also addresses some additional crashes on map loads.)
- Hacking during the Power Plant reboot no longer causes the reboot to fail to complete.
- Fix to prevent the Player from becoming stuck in certain circumstances.
- Nightmares will now always search for the player once spawned.
- Saving and Loading PC settings will now save correctly for users with special characters in their Windows usernames.
- Numerous fixes to GLOO to prevent breaking and bypassing collision, prevent corpses from passing through walls and floors.
- Updated Recycling to prevent infinite material creation.
- Fix for occasional combat freeze when attacking Phantoms
- Kaspar’s objective indicator should no longer disappear.
- Updates to audio mix to adjust volume of music, audio logs, cutscenes.
The update isn’t available for consoles just yet, but it should be coming soon.
Prey is now available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
