Marvel’s Iron Man VR Free Patch brings New Game Mode, Weapons and Lots of Improvements

Blaine Higdon, the gameplay designer at Camouflaj announced on the official PlayStation blog that Marvel’s Iron Man VR is getting a free patch today.

The free patch 1.06 adds various new content such as New Game+ mode, cool new weapons, custom armor decos and challenges, new quality of life features, and more.

Iron Man VR 1.06 Update Notes

New Game Modes

We are adding two new game modes designed for those who are hungry for more.

The much-requested New Game+ will allow you to re-experience the story without giving up your Research Points and unlocks for the Impulse Armor. The New Game+ mode will only be available once you’ve completed the game. And if you’re a hardcore player who has already mastered “Invincible” difficulty, you should definitely give the new “Ultimate” difficulty mode in the new patch for a spin to see what you’re really made of!

New Weapons

Of course, if you’re going to be replaying the story or challenging a new difficulty mode, why not try out some of the new weapons that can be unlocked at the Armor Station?

The Continuous Beam Repulsor

Allows you to sustain a beam for several seconds, dealing continuous damage as long as it’s held.

EM Charge Cannon

It can fire a charged shot right through the hardlight shields of those pesky Skull, Revenant, and Wight drones.

Micro Swarm

A “fire-and-forget” intelligent anti-swarm weapon, great for disabling large groups of enemies. 

The Gravity Bomb

Creates a singularity that traps multiple enemies in a single location and is perfect for setting up a devastating shot from the Scatter Shot or Anti Armor Missile!

New Custom Armor Decos & Challenges

Another set of eight awesome Custom Armor Decos by our character artist Chris Foster will be added to the Armor Station in the garage, along with new challenges to overcome for unlocking them. Among the eight Custom Armor Decos is the Iron Patriot, in case you missed our launch weekend promotion.

New Quality of Life Features

In addition to the new content above, we’ve been hard at work improving user experience.

Improved Load Times

We’ve improved our load times across the board, including 20-30 second decreased times when loading into Shanghai missions. A big shoutout to our engineering team for their continued efforts on this front.

Skip Cinematics without Loading on Replay

When replaying missions, either in New Game+ mode or otherwise, you now have the option to skip an upcoming cinematic without having to load into it first if you’ve already completed the mission at least once before.

Skippable Side Missions

Based on feedback we received for you all, we have made two story missions skippable, if you so choose. You can use the “Skip Mission” button at the globe to advance past these missions, which will count them as “completed,” but you’ll still need to go back and complete it if you want  the trophies for them.

Remember, you can still download and launch the free demo to unlock the exclusive Molten Lava Custom Armor Deco*, and you can purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition of the game to get four extra Custom Armor Decos.

As we prepare to launch this update, I’m reminded of the excitement the team felt in the days and weeks leading up to the game’s release. After years of development, pressing the proverbial “launch” button was both intimidating and deeply satisfying.

One thing that we understood innately — but didn’t fully appreciate until our game was in the wild — was just how passionate Marvel fans are about what we were building. The development team at Camouflaj gobbled up your reviews, tweets, and videos; listening intently to what you had to say, and what you wanted more of. I hope this content update continues to make good on our initial promise: to make you feel more than ever like you are Iron Man.

Thanks for all your support… and enjoy your flight!
