Enabling OpenAL in Prey will result in a much richer soundscape within the game. OpenAL applies the dynamics of the room to the sounds, so the sounds will match with the environment. For example, the sounds will have more of an echo in a tight corridor than in a wide-open room. To enable OpenAL, go to the Options Menu and then choose the Audio Tab. You can toggle between OpenAL and the Default Sound System. PREY takes full advantage of the Sound Blaster X-Fi sound card and OpenAL hardware acceleration is one example of this.
