Atom Republic’s successful Kickstarter campaign has largely addressed the PC version of it’s upcoming virtual reality (VR) theme park thus far, despite the constant reassurance that the tile would also be available on PlayStation 4. Today though, we finally receive some material evidence of this promise as a demo version of Atom Universe is now available to download via the PlayStation Store.
Atom Universe bills itself as the ‘next destination’ for fans of the recently closed PlayStation Home. A VR theme park offering rides, mini-games and places for players to chat, compete and interact, Atom Universe recently surpassed its Kickstarter funding goal and still has 5 days remaining to meet the primary stretch goal: a simultaneous release on PC and PlayStation 4.
The initial launch of Atom Universe will include a main area and 3 mini-games to play, the shooting gallery, the mini-cart race, and the motor stunts challenge. The demo available for PC offers a taste of these entertainments, and now a PlayStation 4 version of the demo can be downloaded via PlayStation Store in both the US and Europe.
Atom Republic have stated on their Kickstarter campaign page that they aim to launch Atom Universe as a beta version by August 2015, with their initial stretch goal offering this edition to both PC and PlayStation 4 owners. VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest details on Atom Universe as the end of its Kickstarter campaign approaches.
UPDATE: Following an issue in the Sony store the release of the was demo was delayed for several hours.
