PSVR box art revealed for Mars Odyssey

Amazon has put up a listing for the physical version of Mars Odyssey, revealing its box art. If you are interested, you can pre-order the PlayStation VR sim with this link from the online retailer; furthermore, you can check out its cover via the image placed just below this paragraph.

You can also take a look at Amazon’s long product description for the game below:

Mars Odyssey is a VR simulation experience that takes place on the surface of Mars. The players will have a full-scale interaction with the NASA Lander and Rover. It’s an outbound learning experience about the history and geography of the red planet.


The concept of the game is to repair the equipment, Lander, and Rover on Mars’s surface. The setting of a landscape exploration is pretty realistic as it uses the actual data collected by NASA, including terrains and height map of the planet’s surface. The same model of the actual rover sent to Mars was also used in the game.


As the game progresses, the player can explore the covered regions of each Rover. The game play continues on the mission of the player to start the repair of the Viking 2 Lander by attaching the fallen components using a portable welder. The second mission teaches you to transfer the Pathfinder to a safer location away from the sand storm and bring it back to the base station. In the third mission, you are to repair the Opportunity solar panels from all the dust to produce power and function. The last mission is to revitalize the Curiosity rover.


The rover is as big as a compact sized car, but it has the least amount of repairs to be done among all rovers. The point of transition in the game is the story telling feature in every mission. The player will have all the information one the components installed by NASA and the background history of each rover, and then the player can move on to the next mission.
