Click to read.3D Realms states today in their \"Weekly\" update that a patch to fix some of the bugs in the PC version of Prey will be coming soon.

Here are the Prey patch 1.1 fixes, straight from 3D Realms update:

* Fixed a crash at startup on some machines
* Fixed an occasional crash on the dedicated server
* Fixed a crash when using image_usecache cvar with very big textures. Textures whose lowest mip map doesn\'t fit will be default texture.
* This was causing a crash when a modified prey was loading \"Mother\'s Embrace\".
* Fixed a crash on some machines when reading savegames.
* Some timedemo features not appearing if you restart between record/playback
* Added widescreen resolutions to menus
* Updated multiplayer browser to fix servers not showing up due to DNS resolution
* Updated multiplayer browser not keeping join button up to date when server summary wasn\'t the active tab.
* Updated multiplayer browser so punkbuster icons show up in their column properly
* Updated multiplayer browser so mod games\' icons show up properly
* Updated multiplayer browser so server scanning is more consistent on slower connections
* Fixed multiplayer weapon exploit

Also on the agenda, a Xbox 360 update to fix some of the lag experiences on Live is coming. No date yet when it\'ll hit Live.

But wait, new content coming to PC and Xbox 360? Tell us more Chris Rhinehart Prey Project Lead of Human Head Studios: \"There\'s also new content for Prey coming soon -- still in the process of finalizing the new maps. We\'ve read online that some people have requested maps that function well as 1v1 maps. So, we\'ve taken that to heart and have been working on four maps that work better with a smaller number of people 2-4 players. Of course, you can still play with more than four in the maps, but they can get pretty insane.\"

They\'re also working on six new character models. Four female - Jen, Elhuit, Mother, and Becky - and two male - Hunter and Elite hunter. You might recognize Becky as the blond victim \"occasionally on slabs\" - to quote Rhinehart - in Prey\'s single player mode.

Great news for fans of Prey on both PC and Xbox 360. A date for the patches and possible points cost for the 360 version are still up in the air, let\'s hope it\'s around two bucks or less.
