In just a week, Oculus Rift users will be able to find out what it means to be a superhero with the release of Marvel Powers United VR. As the release date draws close, Sanzaru Games, Marvel Games and Oculus Studios announce a new launch trailer and special retail bundle.
The new trailer takes a closer look at four of the heroes who have been previously announced heroes, Captain America, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man and Wolverine. In the trailer, fans will be able to see how the gameplay will work with each of the showcased characters.
The trailer also shows off some new characters who had not been previously revealed. This includes Bobby Drake – also known as Iceman, and Ororo Munroe, known as Storm.
Bobby Drake took the name of Iceman after developing abilities that let him sheath himself in protective armour of ice, and manipulate the moisture in the air to control tit, to the point of using it to shrift across the sky on sheets of ice, or fling ice bolts at enemies.
Storm had a troubled childhood and early life, overcoming many hardships to come into her own and develop into one of the most powerful heroes of the Marvel Universe. Storm can manipulate the elemental forces of the weather to whip up deadly thunderstorms or sweep foes aside with massive tornadoes.
