Prey “Opening Hour” demo coming to PS4, Xbox One on April 28th

Weekly video releases, screenshots and behind-the-scenes development footage are all well and good when trying to promote a game. But let’s be honest, a hands-on demo is really the best way for gamers to hop aboard the hype train. of course that could also backfire if a demo is all sorts of terrible, but that’s relatively rare.

Anywho, Bethesda today announced that that will be releasing the Prey Demo: Opening Hour for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on April 28th, 2017. It’s just a couple of weeks before the game’s May 5th launch, and should give undecided gamers a better look and feel for the game before the release day.

Of course there is actually a new video today promoting the demo, which is embedded directly below.
