Sony kicked off it’s “State of Play” event today with the announcement of a new Iron Man VR game coming to PlayStation 4. You can see the full trailer for Iron Man VR down below:
Iron Man VR is being developed by game studio Camouflaj and is set to release sometime in 2019. In a follow-up PlayStation blog post, director at Camouflaj Ryan Payton discussed his admiration for the iconic Marvel character:
“I grew up reading Marvel comics, especially Iron Man. (Iron Man #290 was the first issue I ever bought.) I loved the suspense, the armor, the tinkering, and how *just within reach* it all felt. As I got older, I began gravitating more to the man behind the armor, Tony Stark, and how fun and complex his character is.”
Payton later went on to give a quick synopsis for Iron Man VR, stating:
“And with our game, we wanted to tell more than just an origin story. In Marvel’s Iron Man VR the player, who plays as the genius inventor Tony Stark, confronts ghosts from his past—powerful forces who seek to ruin him and everything he stands for. By fully embracing the magic of PlayStation VR, players will come face-to-face with iconic allies and Super Villains as they jet around the globe on a heroic mission to save not only Stark Industries, but the world itself.”
The first ever episode for PlayStation’s “State of Play” was filled with VR news and reveals ranging from a release date for Sony’s Blood and Truth (May 28th, 2019) to the announcement that No Man’s Sky would be adding PSVR support. To cap off the event, Sony unveiled a new story trailer for Mortal Kombat 11, which aims to see the past and the future versions of characters collide.
