Astro’s Playroom Just Got A Surprise Update With New Content And Trophies

Neat!

As a little surprise for Astro Bot fans, a new update dropped this morning for the free Astro’s Playroom game on PS5, adding in some new PlayStation 5 artefacts to unlock and view as well as a confounding new set of secret riddles complete with their own trophies.

The update introduces a special portal to the “PlayStation Labo” area in the game, and within it an extra room to view some new models that can be unlocked in the gacha machine. You’ll find things like PS5 Slim, DualSense Edge, PlayStation Portal, PS VR2, Sense Controllers and PlayStation Access Controller. You’ll also find a countdown clock to the release of Astro Bot along with a special easter egg when you interact with the PlayStation Portal.

On top of the new collectibles, some “Special Bots” have been hidden across the various worlds with cryptic riddles that need solving to rescue them. Doing so rewards a series of new trophies, but so far only one – a Bloodborne bot hidden in the GPU Jungle level – has been found and solved. You can learn how to do that for yourself right here.

It seems as though we’ll have to wait for more clues for the rest to be discovered, though PlayStation hasn’t actually said a whole lot about this update yet.

Astro Bot launches on September 6th for PS5 in both physical and digital form, with a full-fledged new 3D platforming adventure absolutely packed with PlayStation references, characters and gadgets.
