Astro Bot Rescue Mission Launches To Universal Praise

by Dylan Blight


Astro Bot Rescue Mission from Japan Studio has launched today for PSVR and is garnering universal praise as it sits at a 90 on Metacritic as of writing.

An expansion of sorts on the one level that was a part of the Playroom VR bundle of mini-games that was released in 2016. Astro Bot Rescue Mission is a third-person platformer that makes use of the range of scope that PSVR gives you and the ability to look around your environment freely to do something unique in the genre.

The launch trailer below shows off the variety of colourful and unique environments you’ll experience when playing the game.

Although no one at the Explosion Network has had a chance to play the game yet, if it’s anything like the short level you can play in the Playroom Collection, I have no doubt it’ll show what VR can do to build upon tired-old and mostly retired game genres.

Astro Bot Rescue Mission is available for $54.95 both digitally and physically right now. Have you picked up the game or are planning too? Let us know in the comments below.
