Astro’s latest adventure will harness the haptic feedback of DualSense.
Astro Bot Rescue Mission, developed by Sony Japan’s Asobi Team, was touted as one of the best VR games ever made. So it only makes sense that Astro and his friends would make the jump to PlayStation 5. Hence we have Astro’s Playroom, which will come pre-loaded on the console. Check out the announcement trailer below.
Astro’s Playroom features four different worlds to explore, each teeming with different foes, puzzles and platforming challenges. The hook this time is experiencing the world using the PS5’s DualSense controller. When Astro is fighting against the wind, the controller’s haptic feedback will react accordingly.
Similarly, when shocked, the X button will seemingly vibrate to simulate that reaction. It’s a great touch but the fact that the game looks fun on its own is important. Astro’s Playroom will be available with PlayStation 5 when the console launches this holiday season. As always, stay tuned for more details and announcements.
