New Marvel VR Game Announced for Oculus Rift at D23

Disney, which owns Marvel, is planning to reveal more about the game and announce some additional playable characters at the San Diego Comic-Con next week.

"VR is the flawless medium for a Super Hero game, and there are a couple things that make MARVEL Powers United VR especially exciting", said Steve Arnold, Head of Oculus Studios. The many big announcements and reveals coming out of today's D23 Expo are only serving to add fuel to that fire. "Hulk, Rocket Raccoon, Captain Marvel, and a powerful roster of Marvel's greatest heroes are ready for battle".

D23: Marvel comes to VR with Oculus exclusive Powers United.

Due for release sometime in 2018, Powers United VR is being developed by Sanzaru Games and Oculus, meaning it's going to be an exclusive for the Oculus Rift headset (sorry, HTC Vive owners). They will get to pick their favorite Marvel heroes. But there will be a dozen of playable Marvel characters.

As you probably noticed, in recent times the world is desperately short of entertainment based on the comic book by Marvel, so Marvel to the rescue and announces another game. Hulk towers over the enemies and as you unleash his abilities you can see his hands come together for his trademark Hulk smash. One time you may get the Kree and Ronan The Accuser as a boss; another time you'll get something totally different. The inclusion of Captain Marvel is particularly interesting as it suggests that heroes not included in the Marvel cinematic universe - at least not yet - might make an appearance in the game.
