During the first State of Play, Sony has announced Marvel’s Iron Man VR, coming to PlayStation VR in 2019.
The game has been in the making at République’s developer Camouflaj over the past two years, in partnership with Marvel Games and Sony Interactive Entertainment.
With the title, the studio focused on making flying, shooting and epic Super Hero actions feel natural and powerful on PlayStation VR, and that’s why they chose a first person perspective.
Iron Man VR is featuring a brand-new Iron Man armour envisioned by Marvel illustrator and costume designer, Adi Granov.
“In close collaboration with our partners and friends at Marvel Games, Adi created a new armour that, like the game, mixes a classic comic book aesthetic with an ultra-modern twist,” says a post on PlayStation Blog.
The game will also explore the man behind Iron Man’s life, as “we’ve set our sights on not only giving the player thrilling moment-to-moment action, but also a deeply personal, and appropriately funny, narrative that puts players in Tony Stark’s armoured shoes.”
Marvel’s Iron Man VR is releasing this year exclusively for PlayStation VR: have a look at the official trailer below.
