Astro's Playroom comes pre-loaded on every PS5

Astro's Playroom will probably be the first thing you play on your new PS5.

Sony brought out plenty of big guns during the PS5 games showcase, including the cute little robot Astro. Instead of a sequel to Rescue Mission, Japan Studio has been working on Astro's Playroom.

Astro's Playroom is essentially a series of playable tech demos, and comes pre-loaded on every PS5. It's a 3D platformer that features four worlds, each inspired by one of the PS5's components. Having Playroom in the name sort of gave this away, because Playroom was itself the PS4's pre-loaded experience.

The idea is to showcase the console's exciting features, including, of course, the DualSense controller - which brings haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.
