Prey is one of the best immersive sims ever and you can now play it for FREE on PC. Developed by Bethesda’s Arkane Studios, 2017’s Prey is a tragically under-appreciated immersive sim that, while not without flaws, is easily among the best in the genre. It, along with two other titles, are now gracing the EPIC Games Store freebie section, giving gamers a chance to add it their battlestation’s library of software without spending a nickel. Head below the jump for more details.
Prey – one of the best immersive sims goes FREE
While the debate on the best immersive sims is a heated and passionate one among hardcore fans of the genre, it’s hard not to put Prey 2017 in the conversation – no immediate connection to the legacy Prey titles. Regularly $52 on the Epic Games Store and now available at bargain-bin pricing on consoles via Amazon, PC gamers yet to give this wonderful sci-fi action psychological thriller a shot can now do so without even pulling out a credit card.
From now through May 19, 2022, all you need to do is login to your Epic account and go claim the game right here.
Alongside one of the best immersive sims ever to grace a gaming system, Epic is also dishing up free copies of Jotun: Valhalla Edition – a “hand-drawn action-exploration game set in Norse mythology” – and the futurist racing title Redout: Enhanced Edition.
Arkane might have moved away from making some of the best immersive sims as of late with the now delayed Redfall – it and the highly-anticipated Starfield have now officially been pushed back to 2023 – it will only be matter of time before the Xbox summer games showcase. Bethesda will have a major presence on-stage as expected and here’s to hoping we seeing the next generation of Arkane first-person immersive simulators in some capacity come June 12. Here’s more details on the upcoming Xbox showcase.
