Prey’s Lack of PC Demo Was “A Resource Assignment Thing” – Arkane
President Ralph Colantonio also says PC players will have a demo of sorts.
We’ve already heard Arkane Studios say that Prey on the PC won’t be a repeat of Dishonored 2’s mistakes. If that’s the case, why didn’t the studio release a demo before launch like it did on PS4 and Xbox One?
According to Arkane president Ralph Colantonio while speaking to AusGamers, “It’s just a resource assignment thing. We couldn’t do a demo on both the console and on the PC, we had to choose.
Colantonio also pointed to the fact that PC players can receive refunds on the game if they purchase from Steam. “Besides, PC has Steam. Steam players can just return the game [prior to playing] 2 hours so it’s like a demo already.”
It’s an interesting way to think about it, that’s for sure. What are your thoughts on Prey, especially the PC version, before launch? Let us know in the comments as we get set for Prey’s release on May 5th.
