Following the recent Iron Man VR release date announcement, Sony released a meaty Iron Man VR demo today. There's also a special Iron Man PSVR bundle up for grabs.

The demo trailer at the top of this post gives a glimpse of the Iron Man VR demo in action, and it should come as no surprise you need a PlayStation VR set to play it.

Here's what the demo includes:

  • “Malibu” tutorial mission
  • Interactive Stark Jet cinematic starring Tony, Friday, and Pepper Potts
  • “Out of the Blue” Stark Jet gameplay mission
  • Flight Challenge optional mission
  • Advanced Combat Challenge optional mission

The PlayStation Blog post announcing the demo said this is just a small fraction of the game, so it sounds like we've got quite a bit to look forward to when Iron Man VR launches on July 3.

If you don't have a PSVR yet, Sony opened pre-orders for the Iron Man VR PSVR set today. It comes with a PlayStation VR headset, PlayStation Camera, two PlayStation Move motion controllers, Marvel’s Iron Man VR, and a PSVR Demo Disc.

The blog announcement says pre-orders start today, but as of the time of writing, they aren't actually open yet.

After being delayed and Sony even offering refunds for digital purchases, it's nice to see Iron Man VR getting some more attention.

The original announcement post is over on the PlayStation Blog, and you can get the demo for free off the PlayStation Store. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Iron Man VR news as it flies our way.

Iron Man VR Release Date Updated Tue, 12 May 2020 15:42:09 -0400 Josh Broadwell

Sony announced a new Iron Man VR release date today in a brief Twitter update. After suffering a short delay from its original May 15 relase date, Iron Man VR will launch for PlayStation VR on July 3.

The announcement was, indeed, very brief. No new images, videos, or anything else accompanied the tweet, but we'd be surprised if we didn't hear any more about Iron Man VR earlier in "the coming weeks." 

After all, Sony delayed Iron Man VR around at the same time The Last of Us 2 was delayed, and The Last of Us 2 got a brand-new trailer shortly after its new release date was announced.

Either way, it's welcome news. It was a bit ominous when Sony started issuing refunds for digital Iron Man VR purchases, as if there was no telling when the game might launch. So it's good to see the game taking flight again.

Sony Sending Refunds for Digital Last of Us 2, Iron Man VR Orders Tue, 07 Apr 2020 20:21:33 -0400 Josh Broadwell

Sony announced it's issuing automatic refunds for digital copies of The Last of Us Part 2 and Iron Man VR. The announcement follows last week's news that both games are delayed indefinitely on account of coronavirus-related shipping issues.

The news was originally posted on Sony's Support web page as a small banner, and IGN picked up the story. If you pre-ordered either title's digital version, you should be receiving an email from Sony with further information. We reached out to Sony for more information on when emails and refunds would begin going out, but we did not hear back by press time.  

Both games were set for May launches: May 29 for The Last of Us Part 2 and May 15 for Iron Man VR. As you'd expect, that means both games are also pretty much finished.

Naughty Dog's Neil Druckmann said TLoU2 is "at the one-yard line" during a recent PlayStation Blogcast episode. However, the studio isn't considering a digital-only release at this time, since it wants everyone to experience the long-awaited next chapter in Elie's journey at the same time.

It's been a long journey for TLoU2 as well. It was first delayed to February and then to May so the team could give it "extra polish."

How this will affect The Last of Us TV series HBO and Naughty Dog are working on together, we don't know. Previously, the show's director Craig Mazin said filming can't start until TLoU2 is finished.

The original story is over on IGN. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more The Last of Us Part 2 and Iron Man VR news as it develops.

The Last of Us 2, Iron Man VR Delayed Thu, 02 Apr 2020 15:35:14 -0400 GS_Staff

The Last of Us 2 and Iron Man VR have been delayed. Sony shared the news via Twitter earlier this afternoon, with developer Naughty Dog issuing a near-simultaneous statement on the social media platform. 

Neither Sony nor Naughty Dog provided an updated launch timeline for either game. The Last of Us 2 was set to launch on May 29, while Iron Man VR was set to hit shelves on May 15. The delays are centered on logistical issues concerning the Covid-19 pandemic. 

In a release shared on Twitter, Naughty Dog said that it is almost entirely done with the game's development, but that it wanted fans to experience the game "around the same time." 

As you've likely seen, the release of The Last of Us Part II has been delayed. We're sure this news is just as disappointing to you as it is to us. We wanted to reach out to all of you in our community to give you a little more information. 

The good news is, we're nearly done with the development of The Last of Us Part II. We are in the midst of fixing our final bugs. 

However, even with us finishing the game, we were faced with the reality that due to logistics beyond our control, we couldn't launch The Last of Us Part II to our satisfaction. We want to make sure everyone gets to play The Last of Us Part II around the same time, ensuring that we're doing everything possible to preserve the best experience for everyone. This meant delaying the game until such a time where we can solve these logistic issues. 

We were bummed about this decision but ultimately understood it's what's best and fair to all of our players. We're hoping that this won't be a long delay and we'll update you as soon as we have new information to share. 

We wish you all, your families, and your friends the best of health. Thank you for being amazing fans and your continued support. 

Stay safe!

The Last of Us 2 was first delayed in October "to provide further polish." It was originally set to release in February. 

Recently, Square Enix released early physical copies of Final Fantasy 7 Remake to mitigate shipping issues for the highly-anticipated JRPG. The effort was meant to get the game into players' hands by release day, but an early and sporadic launch has also let loose a torrent of spoilers.  

Though Doom Eternal was also released early due to the effects of Covid-19, its early release was only a few hours in advance and relegated to physical copies sold at GameStop.
