Marvel’s Iron Man VR has been plagued by a number of delays but that should all be coming to an end in July. Back in March details leaked that a possible demo would be released and now further information seems to add credence to these findings.
As spotted by Gematsu over on Twitter, PS4Patches.com – which maintains an archive of PlayStation 4 videogame updates – has posted that a 1.02 update for a Marvel’s Iron Man VR – Demo recently went live across EU, US, Asia and Japan regions.
While there’s no official confirmation of a demo just yet, it’s the best indicator that one is coming soon. VRFocus speculates that the demo would likely be similar to the one showcased at several events last year, having tested a short introductory experience at Gamescom 2019.
This provided a demonstration of the flight and combat mechanics in a short training sequence set around Tony Stark’s Malibu residence. That impressed VRFocus enough to write: “Iron Man VR could very well be one of PlayStation VR’s biggest hits.” So the title is certainly one to look forward to.
Developed by Camouflaj – the team casual stealth experience République VR – Marvel’s Iron Man VR has the famous superhero battling a mysterious villain called Ghost. A hacker and anti-corporate activist who repurposes old Stark tech, Ghost aims to topple Tony’s empire.
Marvel’s Iron Man VR is now slated for release on 3rd July, exclusive to PlayStation VR after previous launch windows for late 2019, February 2020 and May were shelved.
That’s not all PlayStation VR owners have to look forward to. For those that like for buy physical copies Perp Games announced six titles coming to retail this summer. These included Rush VR, Budget Cuts, Headmaster: Extra Time Edition and Mini Motor Racing X.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of Marvel’s Iron Man VR, reporting back with further updates on this demo.
