Although the box art says it’s PS4 Pro Enhanced, Digital Foundry “could find no improvements whatsoever” with Prey on PlayStation 4 Pro when they tested it earlier this month. With Prey update 1.04 though, which is now available on PS4, Arkane Studios has added that promised PS4 Pro support.
As you can see from the patch notes, Prey now features higher quality shadows, improved texture appearance, improved visual fidelity, and more on PS4 Pro. Additionally, update 1.04 includes further fixes for input drift:
