Space Junkies Coming To PSVR, Full Launch Next Month

by Jamie Feltham • February 12th, 2019

The long wait for Ubisoft’s next VR game, Space Junkies, is almost over. Not only that, but it’s coming to PSVR too.

Ubisoft announced today that the zero gravity shooter will hit PSVR, Rift, Vive and Windows VR headsets on March 26th. The PSVR edition isn’t too surprising considering the ESRB rated the game for launch on PS4 last month.

In the game, players bound across zero gravity arenas in 3D shootouts. It’s set to launch with 1v1, 2v2 and free-for-all modes as well as six different maps. Over time, developer Ubisoft Montpellier will introduce new modes, maps and weapons across several updates.

On PC, Space Junkies uses each headset’s respective motion controllers. On PSVR, however, the game will only utilize DualShock 4 with a “unique navigation system”. This is likely down to the tracking limitations with PSVR’s camera. DualShock controls will use Sixaxis motion control, though.

On top of all of that, an open beta is set to run across all platforms ahead of launch. You can sign up to participate in more closed tests right here.

The news comes shortly after Ubisoft launched an arcade version of the game in over 100 locations worldwide. We’ve been impressed with that we’ve seen of the game thus far. “So far I’ve been really impressed with Space Junkies visually and this map only strengthened that feeling,” we wrote in our most recent preview. “Colors are bright and eye-catching and the team at Ubisoft has done a great job of giving everything a strong sense of personality. It’d be very tough to mistake Space Junkies for any other game, which is a great credit to the art team that’s worked on this one.”
