Unpacking PS4 and PS5 Versions Appear Next Week

Unpacking is getting a new home on PlayStation platforms this month, as Humble announced the PS4 and PS5 version release dates. People will be able to find it on both systems on May 10, 2022. This means Unpacking will be available on all major consoles. When it debuted back in November 2022, it launched on the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC.

Unpacking is a puzzle game that also features some narrative elements based on environmental cues. Players follow a person starting with their childhood in 1997. At first, they only unpack the character’s room as their family moves into a new home. From there, it shifts to other major moves in their life. For example, the 2004 move involves the character heading to college and moving into a dorm room. Later moves involve heading out on their own for the first time or moving in with another person. To “win” each year’s stages, you must place things in the proper rooms and get everything unpacked.

The PlayStation Blog post accompanying the Unpacking PS4 and PS5 announcement also mentioned some of the Easter eggs in-game. For example, the alarm clock is highlighted. Once placed in a room, it can be interacted with to make it go from flashing 12:00 to showing the “actual” time in-game.

Unpacking will come to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on May 10, 2022. It is immediately available on the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC.
