Your PC shouldn’t go into system shock trying to run Prey

Plus, achievement reveal

Getting to Talos-I, the moon-orbiting space station in Prey, won’t require a bunch of rocket fuel or alien technology. Nothing too powerful is needed to travel there, just the same rig that can run a bunch of other games.

Alongside today’s console demo, Bethesda released the minimum and recommended PC specs for Prey. Here’s what’s needed to have a baseline experience:

Minimum specs:

  • CPU: Intel i5-2400, AMD FX-8320
  • GPU: GTX 660 2GB, AMD Radeon 7850 2GB
  • Memory: 8 GB
  • Hard drive: Approximately 40GB

To get Prey looking its best, you’ll need a bit more under the hood. Here’s what you’ll need to get it running optimally.

Recommended specs:

  • CPU: Intel i7-2600K, AMD FX-8350
  • GPU: GTX 970 4GB, AMD R9 290 4GB
  • Memory: 16 GB
  • Hard drive: Approximately 40GB

All things considered, not too bad for a modern triple-A title.

Apart from sharing requirements, Bethesda also listed the advanced options PC players will have. They are:

  • Object Detail
  • Shadow Quality
  • Texture Quality
  • Anisotropic Filtering
  • Anti-Aliasing
  • Horizontal Field of View
  • Screen Space Directional Occlusion
  • Screen Space Reflections

Lastly, Bethesda posted an infographic that reveals all of Prey‘s achievements. That’s in the gallery below for anyone who wants to check it out. Be warned that the bottom half is divided into what the publisher considers the ones that may contain spoilers. Completionists might want to get comfy; it looks like it’ll probably take three playthroughs to nab all the achievements.
