Last week, Bethesda released the Opening Hour demo for Prey on PS4 and Xbox One. While the demo ran smoothly with no issues on the Xbox One, PS4 users reported instances of input lag in the game. This means that there was a noticeable delay between pressing a button on your controller and for the action to actually register in the game itself. However, Bethesda has responded to the concern over this issue on NeoGAF, and it looks like the input lag problem will be fixed at the game’s launch.
‘To address input lag, the fix within the final release in the game changes the raw input curve on the PS4 controller to be more responsive at the low end, and to tweak responsiveness to the center point on the controller (narrowing the dead zone.). The net result is faster/more responsive movement.’
It certainly isn’t a big, game-breaking issue, but it’s still good to know that the developers are working hard to iron out all the kinks.
Prey is set to be released for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on May 5.
