The Iron Man VR 1.06 Update patch notes have arrived! This new Iron Man VR update debuts a ton of new content for players to enjoy including a new game plus and cool new weapons like the Continuous Beam Repulsor and Micro Swarm.
Iron Man VR 1.06 Update Patch Notes | Patch Highlights
The first major highlight in the Iron Man VR 1.06 Update patch notes is the addition of two new game modes. If you’ve already beaten the game on “Invincible” difficulty, you’ll now be able to tackle an even greater challenge: Ultimate difficulty.
Furthermore, people who have already beaten the game can play it again with some new bonuses. A much-requested Iron Man VR New Game+ has been added in the Iron Man VR 1.06 Update patch notes, allowing you to start the story all over again while preserving your Research Points and unlocks for the Impulse Armor.
The Iron Man VR 1.06 Update patch notes aren’t just giving you new difficulty modes, though! Players are getting access to four new weapons in the game, each of which adds something new to Tony Stark’s Arsenal.
What are the new Iron Man VR weapons?
- The Continuous Beam Repulsor lets you fire a sustained beam over several seconds.
- The EM Charge Cannon can fire a charged shot through shields, taking care of those nasty drones that are protected by hardlight.
- The Micro Swarm is a favorite from the movies — the weapon fires a bunch of missiles that automatically track a group of enemies on your screen.
- Finally, the Gravity Bomb will trap a bunch of enemies in the air, lining them up for a perfect shot.
This isn’t all that’s coming in this patch, mind — quality-of-life features like faster load times and the ability to skip cinematics are also being added to the game. Read on for the full Iron Man VR 1.06 Update patch notes!
Iron Man VR 1.06 Update Patch Notes | Full List
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!
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.
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.
