Prey isn’t out until later this week, but we already know all the changes coming in its first update.
The 1.3GB update is now active across PS4, Xbox One and PC, although you’ll need a copy of the game to download it.
It aims to fix a selection of bugs ranging from framerate problems and strange glitches involving weapons and the environment.
Creative director Raphael Colantonio has also said that the title’s audio mix has been altered in the final build. Players, ourselves included, found some of the audio to be overbearing when under threat from enemies.
