Hi everybody! I’m Brendan Murphy, lead writer on Marvel’s Iron Man VR. I’m pleased to be the one particular to announce that Marvel’s Iron Man VR is releasing exclusively for PlayStation VR* on 28th February!
With my colleagues at Camouflaj, we’ve spent the previous 3 years building the ultimate Iron Man game for PlayStation VR. From day one particular, we’ve had our operate reduce out for us: not only do we will need to provide amazing Super Hero action and flying in VR, but we had to pair that with a heartfelt, original story about Tony Stark.
Prior to we go into our story creation procedure, let’s take a appear at the brand-new trailer for Marvel’s Iron Man VR:
With Marvel’s Iron Man VR, we approached our large story moments with humor, heart, and suspense—attributes that map completely with Tony Stark. Provided the truth that the game is constructed from the ground up for VR, we doubled down on the storytelling strengths of virtual reality.
This signifies placing the player in the footwear of Tony Stark—literally—as players embody Tony, interact with the globe, opt for some dialogue beats, and reside his life in and out of the armour. Lastly, we sought to leverage the sense of presence in VR by populating the game with iconic Marvel characters to interact with.
Crafting a story that can only be told in VR needs heavy iteration. Central to that procedure was teaming up with the inventive director of Marvel Games, Bill Rosemann, who encouraged us to assume large and differently about the game’s narrative, and supplied terrific guidance for how to style an genuine Tony Stark encounter.
Far more not too long ago, we’ve also paired with famed Marvel writer Christos Gage to enable with some extra writing and sprinkling in some exciting “Marvel-ness” into the script!
The story has gone by way of a lot of iterations, but early on, we landed on the thought that hacker villain Ghost really should be Marvel’s Iron Man VR’s headlining antagonist.
Ghost is an all-time classic Iron Man super Villain, beginning from the character’s very first look in Iron Man #219, this formidable adversary continues to challenge Iron Man all through several arcs, such as Inevitable and Unholy Ghost.
In our game, Ghost is a terrific foil for Tony Stark—she not only holds a grudge against our hero, but holds a mirror up to him. As a witness to the harm triggered by Stark-produced weapons years earlier, Ghost’s fight against Iron Man is each ideological and private.
Since of Ghost, our complicated and fascinating hero will have to reconcile his troubled previous, each on and off the battlefield…
