Hi every person! I’m Brendan Murphy, lead writer on Marvel’s Iron Man VR. I’m pleased to be the a single to announce that Marvel’s Iron Man VR is releasing exclusively for PlayStation VR* on February 28!
With my colleagues at Camouflaj, we’ve spent the previous 3 years making the ultimate Iron Man game for PlayStation VR. From day a single, we’ve had our function reduce out for us: not only do we require to provide outstanding Super Hero action and flying in VR, but we had to pair that with a heartfelt, original story about Tony Stark.
With Marvel’s Iron Man VR, we approached our significant story moments with humor, heart, and suspense—attributes that map completely with Tony Stark. Offered the reality that the game is constructed from the ground up for VR, we doubled down on the storytelling strengths of virtual reality. This suggests placing the player in the footwear of Tony Stark—literally—as players embody Tony, interact with the planet, pick out some dialogue beats, and reside his life in and out of the armor. 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 demands heavy iteration. Central to that method was teaming up with the inventive director of Marvel Games, Bill Rosemann, who encouraged us to assume significant and differently about the game’s narrative, and offered terrific guidance for how to style an genuine Tony Stark knowledge. Additional lately, we’ve also paired with famed Marvel writer Christos Gage to assistance with some further writing and sprinkling in some entertaining “Marvel-ness” into the script!
The story has gone by way of lots of iterations, however early on, we landed on the concept that hacker villain Ghost should really 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 various 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 brought on by Stark-produced weapons years earlier, Ghost’s fight against Iron Man is each ideological and individual. Mainly because of Ghost, our complicated and fascinating hero have to reconcile his troubled previous, each on and off the battlefield…
