Prey demo now available — play the first hour for free

Prey's free demo is now available, giving you a chance to get an early look at the terrifying confines of the Talos I space station. The demo comes a week ahead of the game's full release on May 5, and is now available for Xbox One and PS4.

The free demo lets you jump into the first hour of gameplay from Prey. That's just enough to glimpse the start of protagonist Morgan Yu's journey aboard the Talos I after a terrifying species of aliens, the Typhon, breaks free from its confines. Throughout Prey, you're tasked with taking on the Typhon and preventing them from reaching Earth.

In any case, if you're ready to jump into Prey ahead of its full drop on May 5, you can grab the demo now from the Xbox Store.
