If you ever dreamed of jumping into Marvel‘s most famous armored suit and saving the day as Iron Man, PlayStation has just announced the VR experience for you. Iron Man VR brings the world of billionaire-turned-superhero Tony Stark to your living room, exclusively through the PS VR headset. The game is being developed by Camouflaj.
“We’ve set our sights on not only giving the player thrilling moment-to-moment action,” Camouflaj director Ryan Peyton wrote in a PlayStation Blog post, “but also a deeply personal, and appropriately funny, narrative that puts players in Tony Stark’s armored shoes.”
Iron Man VR is a shooter from the perspective of Iron Man’s HUD, as he punches and shoots enemies out of the sky. You can move both of Iron Man’s blaster-equipped arms as well as his head, as well as zip freely across the map, as opposed to an on-rails experience.
This isn’t the only Marvel game currently in the works. Marvel’s Avengers is also being developed over at Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal, a new action-adventure game that takes a superhero approach to the popular loot shooter genre. Rumor has it that Eidos Montreal is also developing a secret Guardians of the Galaxy game.
And let’s not forget a sequel to Marvel’s Spider-Man, which may very well be on the way as we speak, although Sony hasn’t made any official announcements about a second game. It’s likely after the success of the game that Insomniac is preparing the project.
