Earlier today VRFocus reported on the likelihood that Marvel’s Iron Man VR would be getting a demo ahead of the videogames’ official July launch. That’s happened soon than expected, as the demo is now available on PlayStation Store. Plus there’s a new controller bundle coming.
If you head to the PlayStation Store right now (here for UK/ here for US) you can download the free Marvel’s Iron Man VR – Demo and see what all the fuss is about – and whether the full experience is worth waiting for.
The PlayStation Blog has revealed that the demo contains:
- “Malibu” tutorial mission
- Interactive Stark Jet cinematic starring Tony, Friday & Pepper Potts
- “Out of the Blue” Stark Jet gameplay mission
- Flight Challenge optional mission
- Advanced Combat Challenge optional mission
This should give a nice taster of the action and how it feels to fly, shoot, and Rocket Punch using Tony Stark’s famous armour. As an added incentive to download the free demo (as if you needed one?), doing so will unlock the exclusive Molten Lava Armor Deco when you purchase Marvel’s Iron Man VR.
To play Marvel’s Iron Man VR you’ll need a pair of PlayStation Move controllers which can be difficult to come by should you not own a pair. So alongside the videogame launch on 3rd July a special bundle including the highly sought after controllers will be released, retailing for €99.99 /£84.99. Available to pre-order today this bundle will be available in Switzerland, Austria, Eastern Europe, UK, Croatia, Bulgaria, Germany, Italy, Greece, Cyprus, Israel, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Benelux, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway.
Those in US, Canada, Columbia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama, Peru, and Republica Dominicana will have a different deal. For $349.99 USD / $449.99 CDN the bundle includes:
- Marvel’s Iron Man VR videogame
- PlayStation VR headset
- 2 PlayStation Move controllers
- PlayStation Camera
- VR Demo Disc
Placed inside the famous superhero, the storyline revolves around a mysterious villain called Ghost. A hacker and anti-corporate activist who repurposes old Stark tech, Ghost aims to topple Tony’s empire and you need to stop her.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of Marvel’s Iron Man VR, reporting back with further updates from developer Camouflaj.
