When the first MCU film “Iron Man” premiered in 2008, one of the best visuals there was the depiction of Tony Stark in his armor flying through the air and above the clouds. This is also enhanced by the awesome SFX shots of Tony looking at his flight path through the HUD of his helmet.
Attractions like the Iron Man Experience in Hong Kong Disneyland have tried to replicate the first-person view effect of flying like Iron Man. But a more personal experience can be had if you happen to own a PlayStation 4 with an accompanying PlayStation VR headset.
Marvel Games, Sony Interactive Entertainment and Camouflaj present “Iron Man VR,” a virtual-reality game experience for the PlayStation VR accessory of the PS4. It was unveiled Monday, March 26 during the first ever Sony-exclusive game reveal event, the State of Play. Here’s arguably the ultimate means for players to be in the Iron Man armor.
Ryan Payton, director of the game from developers Camouflaj, says they wanted “Iron Man VR” to be a “thrilling moment-to-moment action experience that’s also personal and funny,” the exact way fans might use to describe Tony Stark/Iron Man and even the whole MCU film franchise.
To this Marvel Games VP and Creative Director Bill Rosemann adds how Iron Man is an ideal hero to experience in VR, to which the simulator is Marvel and Sony’s way of giving fans an “affordable and less dangerous” way of getting into Tony Stark’s metal shoes. No word has been given on the release date for “Iron Man VR.”
