Following the Meta Quest and PlayStation VR releases, Startenders is set to make its PSVR2 debut today! Set to be known as Startenders: Intergalactic Bartending, developer Foggy Box Games has revealed all the details you need to know to get your hands on the game.
Startenders was announced for PSVR2 back in February 2022. The game subsequently released on the original PlayStation VR in September 2022. It allows players to let players loose with a cocktail shaker, a collection of mad machinery, and an abundance of crazy ingredients to mix, shake and serve their way across the universe. Now, with Startenders PSVR2 launch, players of that original release can get access for free.
“We’re delighted to confirm that anyone who owns Startenders: Intergalactic Bartending on PSVR will be able to get the PSVR2 version on us,” said Chris Youles, Creative Director of Foggy Box Games. “We’ve been thrilled with the reaction to the game since it launched, and look forward to serving up even more hectic intergalactic bartending when the new headset releases next year.”
Startenders: Intergalactic Bartending Gameplay
Startenders: Intergalactic Bartending features four gameplay modes: Campaign, Free Mix, Daily Run and Endless. Throughout all of these, you can create your own custom drinks. More than two million possible combinations are available.
