July 24th, Katowice, Poland — Have you ever wondered what NASA’s requirements are for becoming an astronaut? They’re simple really. You need to have a bachelor’s degree in biology, physics, or math. Three years of experience in the field, or at least 1,000 hours of pilot-in-command time in a jet aircraft. Oh, and excellent vision, obviously. Now, we’re pretty sure neither the first or the second would be a problem for you, but this eagle eye thing… thaaat might be a tiny bit of a problem. Too many night hours spent playing video games had to take its toll on you eventually, eh?

But don’t give up on your dreams just because your eyesight’s not as sharp as it used to be. Simply grab your copy of Detached on PS VR for $24.99 / 24.99 EUR (https://store.playstation.com/pl-pl/product/EP4918-CUSA11492_00-DETACHED000000EU), or the Steam non-VR version for $14.99 (https://store.steampowered.com/app/848410/Detached_NonVR_Edition/), and show those NASA brainiacs it’s not about good eyes in space, but guts of iron. And YOU have those!

Still not sure if the game is for you? Download the free demo available under the above Steam link, to go through several astronaut tests before you make your decision.

Detached, which was first released on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, now comes to new platforms, and with an action packed cross-platform PvP mode available in two variants:

  • Package Extraction – An exciting battle for cargo in the middle of nowhere. Use all possible means to attack your opponent and gain an advantage. Avoid attacks to get back to the base in one piece.
  • Race – It’s a real roller-coaster ride! Racing between pieces of broken shuttle and large asteroids not only requires agility, but above all the ability to anticipate. One thoughtless move and you’ll crash when you least expect it.

All versions of Detached, on all available platforms, have also been enriched with a content update that expands the gameplay by an additional 30 minutes, adding a brand-new ending.
