Sony announces

Sony has announced an unusual game for PS5 and PSVR 2: Meteora lets you embody a racing celestial body.


Meteora is inspired by the universe depicted in sci-fi movies and documentaries. The first screenshots promise a visual feast..

Sony describes Meteora as follows

Shoot yourself into the nebula and join a race for survival. In this arcade combat racer, you’re not just a meteor but a force of nature. Cascade your way through a volatile universe of awe and wonder as you outmaneuver, pursue, and obliterate rival meteors in a dazzling display of strategy and skill. Harness the power of the cosmos, level up your abilities, and climb the leaderboard in an experience that’s as thrilling as it is unforgiving.

Meteora will be released for PS5, PSVR 2 and PC. The launch date will be announced soon. According to the Steam product page, the PC version does not offer VR support. The page also states that Meteora does not have a multiplayer mode, but features online leaderboards.


Over 60 cosmic racetracks

In Meteora, you must dodge, chase, and destroy other celestial bodies with your own meteor-showers. You can customize these showers to increase your damage and improve your chances of survival. Power-ups and abilities can be unlocked, upgraded and combined throughout the game.

The Indian studio Big Boot Games promises over 60 levels, multiple difficulty levels and hidden boss challenges.


Big Boot Games is a six-person VR studio that is part of Sony's India Hero Project. In addition to Meteor, four other non-VR titles were announced on the Playstation Blog.

Meteora is based on the Unity engine and has been in the works for quite some time. The video above is over three years old.
