We’ve already seen that superheroes and virtual reality (VR) can work together well with the Spider-Man: Homecoming VR experience. Marvel are now taking that idea a step further with the first full VR videogame from Marvel – Marvel Powers United VR.
Marvel have announced that the upcoming title will feature co-operative multiplayer that allows up to four players to take control of their favourite Marvel heroes to fight supervillains, complete assigned missions and compete for a high score.
Marvel Powers United VR will be coming to Oculus Rift. Though a precise release date is yet to be confirmed, it is scheduled to be released some time in 2018. A demo of the title will be available for attendees at San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) to play, by visiting the Marvel booth at the event, which will be held between 19th-23rd July at the San Diego Convention Centre.
Three characters have already been confirmed. The Hulk will have a seismic punch and thunder clap ability to take out supervillains. Rocket Raccoon will have his trademark blasters and a scatter rifle, while Captain Marvel will have the power of flight, alongside photon beams and super strength.
A range of comfort and locomotion options will be available, so players can choose the options that best fit them. There are plans for more than a dozen characters from the Marvel comics and films to be available to select. Further information can be found at the official Marvel Powers United VR website.
The announcement trailer is available to view below.
