The main PlayStation Experience livestream is now over and there was a bunch of virtual reality (VR) titles revealed for PlayStation VR. Shockingly, one videogame that didn’t make to the stage or any of the video show reels was Owlchemy Labs’ Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality, which has just appeared on PlayStation Blog confirming a launch for PlayStation VR in 2018.
This is major news as Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality was one of the biggest VR releases in the first half of 2017, originally supporting just Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Created in collaboration between Job Simulator developer Owlchemy Labs and Adult Swim Games, Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality combines the humour of much loved cartoon series Rick and Morty, with all the zany interactive elements of Job Simulator.
You don’t actually get to play as either Rick and Morty, instead you’re a Morty clone who’s instructed to carry out all manner of tasks by Rick to help him with his adventures. While the majority of the experience is based inside Rick’s lab/garage, there’s far more to the surroundings than meets the eye, taking you on a journey that’ll take you across multiple dimensions and to places like Purgatory and even the Smiths’ bathroom.
Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality will be coming to PlayStation VR next year, but for those attending PlayStation Experience there will be a chance to demo the title.
While you don’t need to be a Rick and Morty fan to enjoy the experience it certainly helps if you’ve seen some of the episodes as there are quite a few in jokes and casual references to the cartoon. Needless to say, VRFocus gave the PC-version a thumbs up, awarding it five stars in the review, saying: “Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality is a madcap, fun filled adventure from start to finish, perfectly suiting VR’s qualities, it should not be missed.”
As further details are released, VRFocus will keep you updated.
