Prey is coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One next Wednesday, so Bethesda has condensed the game’s critical details into a single blog post. Its contents reveal how much space and what kind of rig you’ll need to play the game.

As expected, Bethesda says video drivers will be available for PC graphics cards before release. No further details were provided. We can only hope the PC build is optimized better than the developer’s previous game, Dishonored 2. These requirements don’t appear outlandish enough to suggest a lackluster port job, but the 2016 game’s poor performance is reason enough to be cautious.

Prey is the next title in the Arkane Studios portfolio, and it’s intended to be a spiritual successor to 1994’s System Shock while also taking a cue from Dishonored and BioShock. Its story follows a researcher named Morgan Yu. As he or she explores the space station on which they live, the character realizes not all is as it seems. Hostile aliens have taken over the craft. Are you a human fighting for survival, or are you one of them?

Prey comes to PC, PS4 and Xbox One next Wednesday. A free demo can be downloaded now. Here’s how to do it.
