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

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.

"VR is the ideal 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.

D23 runs through the rest of the weekend.

The game will feature a full roster of characters from the Marvel universe.

Marvel Powers United VR is an Oculus Rift exclusive game that allows multiple players to assume the role of various Marvel heroes and team up to do battle against goons and more capable Marvel villains. Suddenly, heroes from across the Marvel Universe are hurled together in a chaotic, interdimensional conflict spanning past, present, and alternate futures to fight to reclaim the Cosmic Cube and restore order to the universe.

Oculus and Sanzaru are now working towards a 2018 release, while more playable heroes will be announced at next week's San Diego Comic-Con.

Each time you play, you won't know which faction or boss you'll encounter-every experience will play a little differently. As Rocket, you'll get to guns as you blast everything around you. They will get to pick their favorite Marvel heroes. Immortalize your achievements with custom comic covers and share them on Facebook with the in-game comic cover feature.

Taking advantage of the Oculus Rift's new Touch controllers, players will be able to move their hands and body in real-time to unleash attacks.
