Prey is getting an Opening Hour Demo a week before launch. A free Prey demo will be available on Thursday, April 27 for Xbox One. The demo will allow fans to board Talos I and play the opening hour before the worldwide launch of the game on May 5.

The Prey Demo: Opening Hour puts you in the role of Morgan Yu, lead scientist aboard Talos I, working on a scientific breakthrough meant to alter humanity forever. What starts off as an exciting first day of work very quickly takes a dark turn. You find yourself alone on board Talos I, a lavish but abandoned interstellar research facility. Aliens have overrun the station and are hunting down any surviving crew members, including you. Should these creatures reach Earth, life as you know it will end. It’s up to you…or should I say Yu, to uncover the mysteries of Talos I, fight the alien invasion and save humanity. Normal day’s work, right?
