One of PSVR’s highest profile exclusives is flying onto Quest 2 in November with the acquisition of development studio Camouflaj.
Quest 2 owners can soon become Tony Stark aka Iron Man with the surprise release of Iron Man VR slated for November 3.
The game is making its debut on Quest 2 by way of Camouflaj and partners Endeavor One. During Connect, Meta announced it acquired Camouflaj alongside Resident Evil 4 VR development studio Armature. Meta is keeping a tight lid on what games its teams at Oculus Studios are working on but we’ll be curious to see what Camouflaj has in store for upcoming consumer-grade hardware from Meta — we’ve seen indications the successor to Quest 2 could see huge processor upgrades — and that could be pretty meaningful to projects from Oculus Studios.
We were impressed by Iron Man VR game when it released on PSVR in 2020 with a “liberating and intense” adaptation of Tony Stark’s story for VR that accomplished quite a lot on the first generation PlayStation VR headset. Still, our review at the time noted two key drawbacks related to the hardware — “awful loading times” on PS4’s hard drive as well as the limitations of the aging PS Move controllers. Quest 2, meanwhile, features solid state storage, wireless freedom, and the more standard button layout of the Oculus Touch controllers. Taken altogether, those changes might make the title feel a bit more like Iron Man VR Mark II. We’ll have to take the game for a spin on Quest 2, of course, but be sure to check back in the coming days for some preview coverage.
