Prey Having No PC Demo Is Due To Steam
The highly anticipated title from Arkane Studios called Prey is slated to arrive today, May 5. Ahead of its launching, the studio opted to unleash a short but free demo. Unfortunately, for PC players, the said demo is not available to them.
According to GameSpot, the said Prey demo is only available to the consoles PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Apparently, this has led to PC fans wondering why the video game company resorted to doing such. Well, there is a reason behind it.
In an interview with AusGamers, Arkane Studios' very own president Ralph Colantonio said that "it's just a resource assignment thing." Basically, the developers can't opt to come up with a demo on both of the platforms. So it's either the console or the PC, and obviously, the devs chose the former.
Colantonio also iterated that they released a Prey demo on the consoles for another reason. PC players are capable of playing the game up to two hours once launching is done and get a refund for it. How exactly? Well, this is due to Steam's refund program. "PC has Steam," he noted. It is actually true, as Steam players can just return the game and process a refund, though this only happens after playing a title for 2 hours.
Nevertheless, the Arkane Studios' executive revealed that Prey, contrary to popular belief, is not a port of the console release. Rather, it is meant to be a PC-game first. He explained that they did not necessarily develop the game for the console and suddenly port it to PC. For them, development starts on this platform. He even pointed about how they guaranteed the thoroughness of the game.
Prey is expected to hit the shelves today on all platforms. Its demo is already ready for download, but as stated above, it is only meant for the consoles. The demo can be acquired here.
