Prey Review – Bethesda Not Sending Out Early Review Copies

Bethesda will continue to follow their latest review copies policy.

Posted By | On 27th, Apr. 2017 Under News | Follow This Author @GamingBoltTweet


Last year, Bethesda found themselves in a bit of controversy over press review copies. According to the publisher’s updated policy, Bethesda won’t be sending early review copies of their games to the press. This decision was met with a lot of criticism and given how broken Dishonored 2 was on the PC, many found it as a move to dodge consumer expectations.

It seems that the same policy is going to apply for next month’s big game release: Prey.  “Per your question, Bethesda’s previously outlined policy on distribution of review copies is still in place,” a Bethesda PR told to Gamerevolution. Now before you bring out your pitchforks, it must be noted that this doesn’t mean Prey will turn out to be a bad game. I mean, just look at last year’s DOOM. 

Regardless, what are your thoughts on this? Are you going to pick up the game on launch or are you going to wait for reviews? Let us know in the comments section below.

    We are now past the age of hardware restrictions keeping a game from being worthy of our hard earned dollars. It is now just a question of the game itself being worthy. For times like these when a review is necessary for a purchase, but there are no review copies being sent out, there is always a local Redbox kiosk nearby. And then if you finish the game in 2-3 days, or over a long weekend for just the low rental cost of 9 bucks, that’s even better. If you don’t finish it, at least you’ll have sufficient play time to get an idea of whether you like the gameplay or not. It’s just not a better option for Bethesda. Oh well. Thats just how is today. No one that I know likes these huge day one patches either.

    No early review, then no pre-order or day one buy from me.
    And I’m an older gamer, I can buy games new anytime I want (more disposable income).
    Bethesda has one of the worst track records of any developer or publisher when it comes to buggy games. The only company I’d jump in blind is Rockstar. They earned the trust.
    Everyone else, you lose the early sale with me with late reviews.
