Iron Man VR Will Tell More Than An Origin Story

The Marvel cinematic universe is well-known today and with it comes a slew of familiar characters that not too long ago would have been completely unknown to a largely untapped audience that didn’t gravitate to comic books. These characters are not only familiar to viewers worldwide, but they become loved and carry a fan base far larger than possibly ever before. With such hits as Marvel’s Spider-Man from Insomniac Games, it looks like we have a new Marvel title to potentially get excited for. Iron Man VR was shown off during the PlayStation State of Play where we got a small teaser showing what it would be like if you were Tony Stark.

This game is exclusive to the PlayStation VR and it comes from development studio Camouflaj.  Recently, the director from the studio talked about the game within the official PlayStation blog. In the studio, Ryan Payton spoke of his love of Iron Man as he grew up reading the comic books. Apparently, this game was being worked on for the past two years and while he didn’t give any indication to what the narrative story will be about, it apparently won’t be the standard origin tale.

Instead, it looks like the development team is working on a story that will give players an inside look of being Tony Stark, a genius inventor, and a hero. However, there will be ghosts from his past that will confront him. We’re still waiting to hear more about the game, but it will be interesting to see just how well it does being a VR title instead of having a traditional release like the successful Marvel’s Spider-Man video game.
