Sam & Max: This Time It’s Virtual! Set to Burst Onto PlayStation VR Next week

HappyGiant dropped Sam & Max: This Time It’s Virtual! onto Meta Quest and PC VR headsets last summer, indicating at the time that a PlayStation VR edition would arrive in early 2022. And that’s exactly what the team has stuck to, revealing today that the comedy filled title is set to arrive in a week’s time.

If you’ve managed to completely miss Sam & Max: This Time It’s Virtual! up until this point, the crime-fighting duo were originally created by LucasArts back in the ’90s where you’d help them on their zany adventures. HappyGiant and Big Sugar Games then revived the franchise, bringing some of the original creators back to retain that feeling of authenticity.

Sam & Max: This Time It’s Virtual! drops you in the shoes of a cadet looking to join the illustrious ranks of the Freelance Police. To do so you’ll need to complete a series of challenges (mini-games), each one more fiendish than the last to test your physical and mental capabilities.

Between the series of mini-games, an overarching narrative will play out where you’ll have to help Sam & Max deal with several dangerous enemies; including monsters from outer space and more diminutive foes.

Reviewing the Meta Quest version of Sam & Max: This Time It’s Virtual!, gmw3 found the videogame to be: “one of those VR experiences you want to love because the characters are so well defined, amusing and likeable, even when Max is handing you a bundle of lit TNT. That’s not enough to carry the experience when a big chunk of the gameplay is either shallow or frustratingly twitchy.” 

Sam & Max: This Time It’s Virtual! is currently scheduled to arrive for PlayStation VR on 23rd February, priced at $19.99 USD/€19.99 EUR, with a 10% discount for PS Plus Members for a limited time. For continued updates, keep reading gmw3.
