'Prey' Trophy and Achievement Guide: Your roadmap to 100% completion

'Prey' Trophy and Achievement Guide: Your roadmap to 100% completion

Getting the trophies and achievements in Prey is a tall order. There are 49 of them, and the hardest part of completing the requirements for these accomplishments is the time sink involved. According to PowerPyx, it takes around 30 hours to get every achievement. The reason it takes so long is that Prey has alternate endings that are affected by actions you take throughout the game. If you're not careful with your save files, you'll more than likely have to start the Prey over several times if you want to get every trophy.

Using our trophy and achievement guide below, you'll be able to get them all in the minimum amount of time possible. Each of the accomplishments in Prey is mirrored over the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC versions of the game, so the guide below will help you no matter what platform you're playing on.
