Astro's Playroom Comes Pre-Loaded With Every PS5

Astro's Playroom Comes Pre-Loaded With Every PS5

Sony announced Astro's Playroom yesterday, a 3D platformer starring Astro Bot, that will come pre-loaded in each PS5 console when it launches later this year.

While the name might evoke memories of the slightly naff tech demo 'The Playroom' that came pre-loaded with PS4, Astro's Playroom looks more like a full 3D platformer in the same vein as Astro Bot: Rescue Mission, the brilliant PlayStation VR title that currently sits at an impressive 90 on Metacritic. This appears to be made by the same developers in Japan Studio's ASOBI Team, and if this can utilise the PlayStation 5's hardware the same way that Rescue Mission did with PS VR, then this could be a very good game - and packaged in for free, nonetheless! 

You'll explore four worlds, each based on PS5 console components, with different gameplay styles in each. You can check it out in more detail in the trailer below.

Astro's Playroom will launch alongside (and inside!) the PlayStation 5 later this year.

  • I look forward to uninstalling it right away
  • Will PS5 support VR or will they introduce a new system to the next-Gen?
  • I read that it will have it's own VR, so pPS4 VR won't work on it, you'll need a PS5 VR.
