The Prey reboot wasn't the resounding commercial success Bethesda hoped for, but that didn't rule out new content from the franchise in the future. A few months ago, Vice President Pete Hines said "I don't think you've heard the last of Prey. I just couldn't tell you precisely when you might hear more."
Updated June 22, 2018: Prey now runs at 1440p 30 FPS on Xbox One X and 1080p 30 FPS on PlayStation 4 Pro.
Yesterday, Bethesda announced that Prey was getting a free update alongside a major expansion called "Mooncrash". It would be available the same night for gamers around the world. However, what the company didn't mention was that it also comes with Xbox One X enhancements!
The game now renders at a higher resolution and seems to run better on Microsoft's hardware too. We played a few hours of Prey this morning and immediately noticed the difference. While the title doesn't appear to be running at 4K resolution, it's still a sharper experience than before. The previous frame rate issues don't seem to be a concern anymore.
Prey is a first-person shooter which takes place on a space station overrun by a hostile alien presence. It's up to you to fight through various open environments and prevent the creatures from reaching Earth. It's a unique blend of horror and exploration we haven't seen before in the genre.
In our review, we called Prey "an unforgettable... horror game that's dark, deep and dizzying." Hopefully Bethesda can find ways for it to appeal to more gamers down the line.
