If you have low spec or integrated GPU (with the exception of gaming laptops) don't bother you will stuggle to hit a decent FPS on low to medium settings.

I downloaded the game did all the disc 1 2 and 3 installs, but now when i click on the desktop icon it just keeps saying to please insert the original disc

So every time I try to launch the Setup.exe it pops up that InstallShield Wizard is starting and then that disappears and nothing else happens.

Works great just follow the guide from Creo

These were taken from Pcgamingwiki

Use a custom Resolution
Go to configuration file(s) location.
Edit preyconfig.cfg.
Change seta r_customHeight "486" and seta r_customWidth "720" to your desired resolution.
Change seta r_mode to "-1"
Change seta r_aspectRatio to your aspect ratio. "0" is 4:3, "1" is 16:9 and "2" is 16:10.

Go to configuration file(s) location.
Open the preyconfig.cfg file.
Change seta r_displayRefresh to the highest refresh rate your monitor supports.

1 Download both the game and the patch
2 Unzip in a location of your choice
3 In main game file, find 3 disk files. open number 1
4 find Setup.exe and proceed with the installation.
5 Enter CD key
ignore errors if any
6 Start installation, and open disks 2 and 3 from the original file
7 When prompted, navigate to your computer disks F: G: or whatever the new additions 2&3 are named.
8 When main installation is finished, unzip the patch and run the .exe file. Install following instructions.
9 When istallation is finished, you should right-click the desktop shortcut and Run as Administrator. otherwise game will spit out an error.
10 Game will glitch around your monitor a bit before successfully running. A PREY menu screen will show when installed correctly.

Disregard my comment about a brightness/gamma issue. It was my own fault. Fixed it. Great game!

jug 2020-06-30 1 point

The only issue I'm having is retaining my video brightness/gamma setting. Other than that it's great. It resets itself after exiting and restarting. Something I'm doing wrong or is it the game?

jug 2020-06-29 0 point

This actually work? Full version?

ISO contains disc 2 and 3. Running either ISO says "please insert disc 1". Awesome.

Thanks so much guys. I am in a nostalgic mood :)

Prey is a solid masterpiece.
Using the same engine of Doom 3, but in a more trippy way, using portals,upside-down sequencies, and other fuckeries that you won't believe if you didn't see them first! 10 out of fucking 10, IGN could confirm

600 kbps!? But still, a free game that looks THIS good is too rare!

Pulse 2019-10-23 2 points

Thankyou so much for making this game available, I couldn't find it anywhere else. I'm really enjoying it so far, amazing atmosphere and very trippy :)

It was easy to get working, I just needed to get a cdkey which was simple and needed help getting a higher resolution but again, simple.

@Flying Bugs you are the fucking man

Mamma Miracoli 2019-07-09 3 points

Absolute classic. One of the greats. You can use both Sikkmod as well as ReShade to further improve the graphics:
Also useful technical infos:

Anon 2019-06-29 0 point

So yeah, just download the original file, unzip it.

Then download the patch and unzip it.

Then install the game from clicking on the unzipped patch file and it should work.

GetOutAlive 2019-03-21 2 points

When you run the executable, you will probably get a bluescreen error message saying, "DLL extraction to fs_savepath failed". To fix this, right-click on the executable and click "Run as Administrator".

1. Download the game (1.6 GB) and the patch (42 MB)
2. Mount the ISO and install the game.
3. When prompted enter CD key. Ignore the error.
4. After the game is installed run the patch.
5. Play

how do i install this. it always says setup.exe error while launch? happens on every prey setup i downloaded

Canned_Venison 2019-02-05 12 points

DAMN, I was not expecting this game to blow me away like it did.

The visuals, atmosphere, and the MUSIC. My god, the music is incredible... just... the sound design in this game is something else.

Anyway for anyone wondering the cd key and the patch below work 100%. Try it out!

Rob 2019-01-30 8 points

Absolutely must-play FPS!

anon 2019-01-24 1 point

I thought this game was on but I guess it isn't, downloaded it and can't wait to play

Harry Nuttz 2019-01-21 3 points

Its a real shame what happened to this IP, RIP Prey

The Corgi 2019-01-16 4 points

@CLOWNSLAY There is a patch in the link below, under "Game Extras". It lets the game run without the CD

Clownslay 2019-01-15 3 points

When I try to run it with the disk mounted, it says "Original disc could not be found or authenticated."

Prey 2006 CD Key

Person 2019-01-15 0 point

trying to install but it is asking for the cd key can someone post it or find out what it is

anon 2019-01-14 12 points

I really liked this one, the whole abduction scene was chilling af. Also all the aliens' gory technology.
The portal mechanic was jaw-dropping at the time, preceding Valve's Portal game.
Also, I am still secretly waiting for a proper sequel with protagonist Tommy. FeelSadMan.
