Retrofuture Cold War Adventure ‘Red Matter’ Heading to PSVR This Month

Red Matter (2018), the retrofuturistic first-person adventure game previously launched on PC VR headsets, is headed to PSVR this month in North America and Europe.

Vertical Robot released word of the PSVR launch in a tweet, saying the single-player adventure game is headed to the PlayStation store starting December 6th in Europe, and December 11 in North America.

The version optimized for PlayStation Pro features what Vertical Robot say is a “20% pixel density increase as well as much improved anti aliasing.”

Red Matter launched first on the Oculus Store for Rift in May, and later on Steam for Vive, Rift, and Windows VR headsets in November.

‘Borderlands 2 VR’ Could Come to PC Headsets Five Months After PSVR

If you don’t have time to read our review and see why we gave it a solid [8.3/10] for PC VR, here’s a quick summary of what awaits you:

Red Matter tosses you into a strange and mysterious alternate universe which takes old Cold War rivalries and teases them out to an interesting logical conclusion: space bases, astronaut espionage and a healthy dose of intrigue as you, a member of the Atlantic Union, infiltrate the off-planet test facility of the very Soviet-sounding Volgravians.

Like most adventure games, Red Matter’s emphasis is on telling its story through found items such as notes, diaries, photos, and a host of everyday objects.

It just so happens that when you crash-land on the Volgravian base on Rhea, a moon of Saturn, that two-way communication is disrupted—but you still have your handy Volgravian-to-English translating module, making it a constant exercise in deciphering the faux-Russian script.
