Patch 1.02 - Graphical Changes

Prey Patch 1.02 fixes a bug within the game that prevents shadows from being drawn properly within the game. Below we have made some easily comparable screenshots that compare the game's visuals both before and after the patch.

These screenshots are both taken at 4K and are taken at Very High in-game settings, which means that all changes in visuals are due to patch 1.02 and not any change in Prey's graphical options menu.

As can be seen in the images above, this new patch fixes how many shadows are rendered within the game, making several areas within this scene much darker. These newly drawn shadows will have an impact on the game's final performance, as these new shadows give your GPU a lot more work to do when rendering a frame.
