At the weekend Oculus announced upcoming virtual reality (VR) title MARVEL Powers United VR an action-packed, multiplayer co-op title from Marvel, Sanzaru, and Oculus Studios. Several characters were confirmed, but today Oculus has revealed that the famous ‘merc with a mouth’ will be joining the roster, whilst confirming there will be 12 heroes in total.
The wise-cracking, fast-talking, mercenary will be bringing his hand cannon pistols, deadly Katana’s, SMG’s, and Shurikens to the fight as he joins Captain Marvel, Hulk, and Rocket Raccoon.
MARVEL Powers United VR will be at the San-Diego Comic-Con this week, where visitors to the Marvel booth will be able to play as one of the four iconic characters fighting Ronan the Accuser. If you’re not playing as Deadpool then you can choose The Hulk with his seismic punch and thunder clap ability, take to the skies as Captain Marvel with his photon beams and super strength, or there’s Rocket Raccoon with his his trademark blasters and scatter rifle.
The videogame is scheduled to launch sometime in 2018 for Oculus Rift and Touch, so expect further surprise announcements and character reveals to come.
