In December PlayStation VR owners finally received confirmation that popular PC virtual reality (VR) title Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality would be coming to the headset in 2018. At the time no official date was mentioned. Now VRFocus can confirm that not only will the comedy videogame launch in April, it’ll be available as a retail release plus there will be a Collector’s Edition for sale.
Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality will launch in retail stores on 10th April, 2018 for $29.99 USD. The Collectors Edition version (whose price hasn’t been revealed) includes a copy of the videogame, a Funko Pop! Rick and Morty vinyl figure and an exclusive double-sided poster featuring Rick and Morty comic book cover art.
Built in collaboration between Adult Swim Games, and developers Owlchemy Labs and Other Ocean Group, Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality is a VR adventure like no other. Combining the humour of much loved cartoon series Rick and Morty, with all the zany interactive elements of Job Simulator, players find themselves in the role of a Morty clone, there to do the duo’s bidding whilst they head of on another adventure. Set predominantly in Ricks garage/lab, players will need to solve puzzles, step through portals into strange dimensions, get yelled at by Rick, fight aliens, drink detergent, press buttons, and much more.
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 a five-star 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.”
If further details emerge about the PlayStation VR version and whether it’ll include any new additions VRFocus will let you know.
