Astro Bot: Rescue Mission is without question one of the best PSVR titles to date. It’s an excellent showcase for how VR technology can transform something familiar in surprising ways and the team at Sony Japan did an excellent job of crafting a game that’s a genuinely great platformer in its own right and enhancing that with the power of VR.
Today, Sony announced on the PS blog in celebration of PSVR’s upcoming 2nd birthday that they’re releasing a free demo for Astro Bot that will hit the PSN Store on October 16th — that’s exactly one week away.
This is great news since there isn’t a proper demo for the game out yet. If you download the (free) Playroom VR collection if mini games you can play the spiritual predecessor to Astro Bot, which was named Robot Rescue, but it’s not an actual demo for the game as it exists today.
