Netflix cartoon Final Space may have come to an end after three seasons but that’s not the last we’ll hear of Gary, Mooncake and the rest of the gang. Today will see the arrival of Final Space: The Rescue for Meta Quest, a cooperative shooter taking fans on a brand new adventure.
Developed by Grab Games – creator of boxing title Knockout League – Final Space: The Rescue tasks you with rescuing Mooncake from an unnamed force, shooting your way through wave after wave of Final Space enemies; most of which seem to be robots.
The cartoon series was all about the squad of the Galaxy One working together and that’s no different in this VR experience. Whilst you can play solo, Final Space: The Rescue supports four-player co-op, where you can choose to play as Gary, Avocato, Nightfall, or Tribore. You’ll be able to utilise an arsenal of weaponry to fight through the onslaught of opponents.
Apart from the most recent gameplay trailer (seen above), Grab Games hasn’t released too many details regarding other facets of Final Space: The Rescue such as weapon variety, if there are multiple modes or any other gameplay features that don’t include shooting.
What is expected is plenty of nods and easter eggs to the popular TV series, much in the same way Owlchemy Labs’ Rick And Morty: Virtual Rick-ality did back in 2017. VRFocus would expect to see the likes of the Lord Commander, Bolo and maybe even the appearance of KVN along the way.
Final Space: The Rescue launches today at 6pm GMT/10am PST (13th January) for Quest 1 & 2, with SteamVR and PlayStation VR editions arriving at a later date. For continued updates keep reading VRFocus.
