It’d have been everyone’s dream to know what it would be like to put their head inside of Iron Man’s mask. Most of the people fell in love with the way the screen looked from the inside of his helmet. All the data and information displayed on the screen using an augmented reality view can ignite anyone’s interest and excitement.
Now, it’s going to be something that we’ll have dreamt of sometime in our lives. Iron Man VR is about to come sometime this year as a PlayStation VR exclusive.
Ryan Payton and his studio, Camafloj, got permission from Jay Ong who is the head of Marvel Games to develop an Iron Man game inside of a virtual reality (VR) headset.
What is the gameplay like in Iron Man VR?
The simulation for flying is similar to that of the movies. To fly, you have to point your PlayStation Move controller, palms down, and use the buttons to control the thrusters.
During this time your screen will have iconic Iron Man helmet vision all over. Locators lock on enemies, your health data is displayed at the bottom of the screen, and Jarvis has a few messages for your information while you play.
What is the story in Iron Man VR?
The story of Iron Man VR is quite original and developed from the ground up inspired by an interview done over at VentureBeat with Dean Takahashi. The inspiration comes from the comics and films, but the story was entirely written in the studio for the players.
Tony Stark appears as a cocky, selfish, and cold-hearted man who’s coping with his parent’s death with alcohol and women!
Though this Iron Man is based on the Marvel Comics version, the story itself is completely original. It follows Tony Stark after he’s stopped creating weapons and established himself as Iron Man. However, the past soon catches up to him when hacktivist Ghost appears and starts using his old weapons against him. For some reason, Ghost is attacking different Stark office locations worldwide and it’s up to Iron Man to stop her. As per the official Marvel.com listing for the game, Stark will encounter “iconic allies and supervillains”. We’ve already seen Nick Fury and the iconic SHIELD helicarrier but expect more familiar faces to pop up throughout the story.
PlayStation VR Exclusive
What separates Marvel’s Iron Man VR from most other titles with the Armored Avenger? If the name didn’t give it away, it’s only playable in VR. Furthermore, it’s exclusive to the PlayStation VR on PS4 with Sony publishing the title. There’s no Oculus Quest or HTC Vive version (at least none in the works or planned currently) – if you want to play the game, you need PlayStation VR (along with the PlayStation Camera and two PlayStation Move controllers, of course).
