Prey guide and walkthrough

Prey guide and walkthrough

In our collection of Prey guides, you’ll learn about an exploit in the game’s crafting system, overviews of Prey’s neuromod skill tree, inventory, finding and fighting mimics, achievements and trophies, as well as our beginner’s guide filled with tips, tricks and explanations to help you wrap your mind around Prey. And, of course, our walkthroughs will take you through every nook and cranny in Talos 1.

Prey might seem familiar. You may have seen its components before in games like BioShock, Dishonored, System Shock and even Gone Home — just not quite in this arrangement. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy, or that you’re going to know what’s going on right away. And that’s a beautiful thing. Prey is all the right kinds of perplexing and complicated.

So suit up, it’s time to get your first day of work started.

Editor’s note: Our Prey guide is a work in progress, so be sure to check back at this page often to read our latest guides, tips, tricks and walkthroughs.
