Astro Bot: Rescue Mission was originally out on the PSVR as a way to introduce people to VR experience for new fans to explore. The 3D platform game has fully benefited from the helmet and Astro’s Playroom should do the same for the new features introduced with the PS5 and the Dualsense controller. Astro becomes a bit of a PlayStation mascot and the platform robotics will continue this theme from one generation to another. It is currently difficult to know if Astro will also benefit from a new VR experience on the next generation of Playstation.
The Astro games room offers four worlds based on console components that will all use aspects of the DualSense controller such as the haptic return of triggers or the integrated speaker. Since the last Astro adventure will be installed on each PS5, more people will explore the new generation of Playstation with the titular robot.
