Astro Bot Will Be a Large Game Based on Its File Size

The upcoming PlayStation 5 exclusive, Astro Bot, file size was revealed through a retail box cover, indicating that it will be a huge game. Developed by Team Asobi over three years with a small team, Astro Bot has quickly become one of the most anticipated PS5 exclusives of the year.

According to the retail cover art, Astro Bot will require approximately 66 GB of hard disk space. This file size is significantly larger than previous titles in the series, being almost six times the size of Astro’s Playroom and nearly eight times larger than Astro Bot: Rescue Mission, a PSVR game for the PS4.

Team Asobi is working on this new game after the disbanding of Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Studio. They are one of the few developers left for PlayStation in Japan. They previously worked on Astro’s Playroom for the PlayStation 5 launch, which was bundled for free with every PS5 sold by Sony.

Astro Bot: Rescue Mission was the first proper game featuring this titular character from Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan. While it was a popular game that received critical praise, it was limited to the PSVR on PS4. Despite Sony launching PSVR 2, they have yet to patch the game to make it compatible with their new VR headset. The only way to play it now is to use PSVR with the SP4.

Astro Bot is an engaging space adventure following ASTRO, a robotic character on a mission to rescue his scattered crew across multiple galaxies. Players will explore over 50 planets with unique challenges, navigate using the Dual Speeder, and reunite with iconic PlayStation characters. Key features include expansive adventure, enhanced platforming, and VIP bots. The Standard Edition is priced at $59.99, while the Digital Deluxe Edition includes additional content for $69.99. Innovative PS5 features include immersive visuals, haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, ultra high-speed SSD, and Tempest 3D AudioTech.
