Iron Man VR Has a New Release Date at Last

Iron Man VR Has a New Release Date at Last

We are Iron Men this summer.

Iron Man fans won't have to wait much longer to put on The Man's famous suit in PlayStation VR. Iron Man VR, which Sony Interactive Entertainment delayed "indefinitely" in April, now has a set release date of July 3.

The official PlayStation Twitter account tweeted the good news earlier today. "SIE Update: We are pleased to announce that Marvel's Iron Man VR will release on July 3. Please look forward to more news in the coming weeks!"

Iron Man VR's delay was bundled with a similar announcement for The Last of Us Part 2. "Logistically, the global crisis is preventing us from providing the launch experience our players deserve," the official PlayStation account tweeted on April 2. The Last of Us Part 2 has suffered numerous delays on top of the pause induced by COVID-19, but Sony's since set a firm release date of June 19. The release date commitment might have been sparked by a major The Last of Us Part 2 story leak that happened last month.

Senior Editor Caty McCarthy tried out Iron Man VR for herself in April 2019, and unsurprisingly, she found it fun to zip around as the richest, deadliest tin can in the Marvel Universe. "Iron Man VR, a new game developed by Camouflaj (of République fame) in partnership with Sony and Marvel, is a game that wants you to feel like Iron Man," she writes. "After a lengthy demo with the upcoming superhero adventure, I found that it actually does a pretty decent job with that task."

Caty's write-up also notes the rough spots she ran into, which are to be expected for a VR game demo. Visit USgamer in July, when we'll have full impressions of Tony Stark Playtime.
