Marvel’s Iron Man VR Arrives 2019 on PlayStation VR

Camouflaj Teams with Sony Interactive Entertainment and Marvel Games to deliver the ultimate Iron Man fantasy in VR.

Hi Everyone,

I’m honored to finally introduce Marvel’s Iron Man VR, a game we’ve been building over the past two years with one simple (and daunting) principle: deliver the ultimate Iron Man fantasy game exclusively for PlayStation VR.

What better way to announce the game than unveiling our brand-new Iron Man armor envisioned by legendary Marvel illustrator and costume designer, Adi Granov. In close collaboration with our partners and friends at Marvel Games, Adi created a new armor that, like the game, mixes a classic comic book aesthetic with an ultra-modern twist. We hope you love the Impulse Armor as much as we do.

From the very first day on the project, our team in Seattle has maintained an unwavering commitment to leverage the strengths of VR while enabling players to feel like the world-famous hero. We have focused on making flying, shooting, and epic Super Hero actions feel natural and powerful on PlayStation VR. When you get your hands on the game later this year, I hope that you, like those on the team who have played early development versions of the game, take off your PS VR headset, smile, and say, “Wow… I feel like Iron Man!”

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.

Incredibly, that complexity has always been there, especially during the infamous Demon in a Bottle story, exploring a man at war with himself. This is why 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 armored shoes.

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. We cannot wait to share more about how we are telling an original Iron Man story in a way that only virtual reality allows.

We have so much to reveal about the game and many fun development stories to tell, but we’ll save that for another day. Today, we are excited to celebrate with you that an authentic, fully-featured Iron Man VR game is on the way! Everyone at Camouflaj, Sony Interactive Entertainment, and Marvel Games are hard at work on delivering a game that is truly worthy of the Armored Avenger.

Back to the Garage. Until next time!

  • I’m in. Everything else in the State of Play presentation was gravy. I, too, grew up with ole Shellhead as my favorite superhero. Starting in the pre-Micheline/JrJr/Layton days (they still have the best run on the character). Bring on the Golden Avenger in VR! Also, kudos on all of the VR announcements. Very cool stuff. Can’t wait!

      PSVR is on fire. People need to jump in if they haven’t already, PSVR is getting better exclusives than xb1.

      Firewall continues to pump out content and is VR’s R6 Siege. Astro Bot is a truly great platformer. Ace Combat 7 is fantastic in VR. Moss is endearing, Skyrim is new again, RE7 in VR is the best way to play, The Persistence, Farpoint, Tetris Effect, Rez, Wipeout, Dirt Rally, Arkham, Rigs, Until Dawn, Creed, Borderlands 2, ZOE, DOOM, Eve Valkyrie.

      No Man’s Sky, Iron Man, Five Nights, Blood & Truth, Dreams.

    I’m in day 1 for this. Thank you so much for making something like this so that we can feel like Iron Man.

    Iron Man and VR go together like Tony Stark and alcoholism. I’m amazed it took three years before we got this. Excited!!

  • Sweet! Been waiting for an Iron Man VR game for years.

  • riseagainstme1

    i’ve got a question for Camoflaj and / or Sony: why isn’t Republique available on PSN anymore?

  • I’m excited for this. Hopefully it lives up to it’s potential. I want this to sit amongst the PSVR greats like Astrobot, Moss, etc.

    Gotta love that big fat NOT ACTUAL GAMEPLAY blurb through the entire thing. How are people so easily impressed? Astounding.

    • It showed gameplay, it was just things like the cutscene at the start or the shot of the suit during flight that wasn’t gameplay.
      That said, you shouldn’t ever take trailer footage for the end results.

  • My only concern is the “Not actual gameplay”* part. I’m hyped.
    This was a great presentation for us VR gamers! And the non jaded Flat screen gamers.

    • Why? I mean that’s common sense, really. They needed a dynamic trailer to help set up what was happening, couldn’t just use the First Person perspective, so they added some CGI renders in to simulate how you’d “look” to others observing.

      It’d be a lot more awkward and a lot less clear if the trailer was made up solely of first person camera shots.

    • Straight from Marvel.com, gameplay looks all right:

  • Very excited for this. With Sony’s financial backing, I hope this is a true video game that just happens to be in VR. No 30min-hour experience here, you guys. We want a full fledged game.

    Great presentation for PSVR

  • First No Man’s Sky VR and now this! Also Blood and Honor coming soon! SONY Arigato!

  • ManjoumeThunder

    I’m so down for this.

  • So excited for this. Great decision to take this to VR. As great as Spider-Man was, I really wish it would have been in VR as well.

    Set the bar with this, and make sure VR becomes the expectation when it comes to Super Hero games. I want Spider-Man 2, Superman, Incredible Hulk, Batman, and the rest of the Marvel and DC Universes in VR.
