Originally Iron Man VR should have been released for PlayStation VR on February 28th, 2020. Game developer Camouflaj announced a later release date in January and now Iron Man VR release date for PSVR has been pushed even further away.
Mid-January VR game developer Camouflaj announced that the release date will be pushed to May 15th. Camouflaj tweeted:
And now, just a few days ago PlayStation tweeted that Iron Man VR will NOT be launched on May 15th because of “the global crisis” meaning that the Covid-19 has affected companies’ ability to successfully release the game for PSVR. Here is the tweet:
So, what are you as a PSVR user missing? Iron Man VR puts you in Tony Starks Iron Man suit and you have to fight against the mysterious Ghost who is your main nemesis. Ghost is a mysterious hacktivist and she will try to turn Stark’s empire into dust using Starks own technology against you.
One of the main writers of the game – Brendan Murphy says that:
“In our game, Ghost is a great 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 damage caused by Stark-made weapons years earlier, Ghost’s fight against Iron Man is both ideological and personal. Because of Ghost, our complex and fascinating hero must reconcile his troubled past, both on and off the battlefield…”
Previously the pre-order of the game was available on PlayStation Store in Standard Edition or Digital Deluxe Edition. But now the option seems to have disappeared. Pre-order was:

Digital Deluxe Edition: $50 USD, digital copy only. Digital Deluxe Edition included:

Use these Research Points to unlock some weapons and augments early and customize to play style.
