The PlayStation VR Marvel’s Iron Man VR Bundle (yes that’s the real name, both VRs and all) lands an official release date today – along with a free demo available right now. This news comes following last month’s announcement that it, along with The Last of Us Part II, would be delayed indefinitely. The full game and bundle will be available on July 3, and seems to be aimed at folks who don’t already have all the necessary VR equipment.
“This bundle includes a PlayStation VR headset, PlayStation Camera, two PlayStation Move motion controllers, Marvel’s Iron Man VR Blu-ray disc, and a PS VR Demo Disc. This bundle will be available across US, Canada, Columbia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama, Peru, and Republica Dominicana for $349.99 USD / $449.99 CDN (MSRP). Pre-orders start today.”
According to the PlayStation blog, players will be able to fly around, blast baddies, and upgrade the Iron Man suit via Tony’s garage. The demo seems to include a bit of all of that with a handful of different missions, as well as an interactive cinematic. Whether that entails some sort of choice-based dialogue system, or just player movement is unclear – but it sure sounds neat! Anyone who downloads and plays through the demo will see the fruits of their labor later on, with an exclusive set of Molten Lava Armor Deco in the full game.
Download it here, and check out the full demo details below. And, if you’re curious about how the game plays for someone who’s never donned a VR headset, see what Matt O’Keefe’s had to say after he played the demo at NYCC ’19.
The demo includes:
- “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
