Meta talked about everything from fitness to social platforms and the future of work in today's Connect live stream.
Of course we're interested in the reveal of the new Quest Pro hardware, but with its high-end price tag to match the high-end specs, we don't see it beating Quest 2 in consumer sales. More interesting were the game and release date reveals showing what Quest gamers will be playing this year. Here’s every gaming-specific announcement from Connect:
Marvel’s Iron Man VR
Everyone's favourite billionaire with an artificial heart is heading to Meta Quest 2 on November 3rd, created by the teams at Camouflaj and Endeavor One, in partnership with Sony Interactive Entertainment and Marvel Entertainment.
Players will take to the skies in Tony Stark’s iconic armor, travel the world and face off against Ghost, a hacker with a dangerous drone army and a mysterious connection to Stark’s past. We're promised the game will be packed with deep-cut references for franchise fans.
