Powers United VR will put you right in the Marvel universe

Powers United VR will put you right in the Marvel universe

As it's being developed by Oculus and Sanzaru games, Marvel Powers United VR will only be showing up on Rift, not competing devices like HTC Vive or PlayStation VR.

D23 runs through the rest of the weekend.

It was a very interesting show to see where Disney plans to go next with video games as they expand into all of the various avenues available and create their own.

Marvel Powers United is slated for release at some point in 2018, with announcements for other playable heroes coming in the near future.

There's a fourth character on the roster that doesn't get any air time in the trailer, a certain Ronan the Accuser. Transform into your favorite Marvel Super Hero and wield their awesome powers and weaponry in your hands. They mention over on the official website that there will be "smart" "locomotion" implemented into the game, so you won't just teleport around.

Aside from the allure of Marvel characters themselves, the multiplayer aspect of the game has the potential to help it really stand out. 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. Facebook has even lowered the price to $399.99 for both the Rift VR headset and Oculus Touch motion controllers as a way to lure people into buying the system. Marvel are now taking that idea a step further with the first full VR videogame from Marvel - Marvel Powers United VR.
