Owners of the PC and Xbox 360 versions of Prey will be able to beef up their games soon, according to 3D Realms, who oversaw development of the game. The company's Web site says that patches and new content are on the way "soon."
The PC patch will bump the game up to version 1.1 and tackle various bugs and crashing issues. A similar patch will also be released for the Xbox 360 version and "address network lag," as well as "fix several bugs." No time of release has been announced, but unconfirmed reports around the Internet say an update for the Xbox 360 edition was released today.
