Disney And Oculus Team Up For 'Marvel Powers United VR'

The company has now revealed Powers United VR, a virtual reality game that will let you immerse yourself in a virtual version of Marvel's massive universe.

Disney's D23 Expo covers all aspects of its entertainment empire, and today the studio revealed that virtual reality is coming to the Marvel universe. A short video was shown with popular Twitch streamers playing through a snippet of the game. Check out a more detailed overview of the game's backstory and main features just below.

From Marvel, Oculus and Shanzaru Games, the co-op multiplayer title will be the first Marvel VR game and will allow up to four players to fight alongside each other. You can play as various Marvel characters, from the Incredible Hulk to Rocket Raccoon from Guardians of the Galaxy.

Check out the announcement trailer below. They will get to pick their favorite Marvel heroes. There are plans for more than a dozen characters from the Marvel comics and films to be available to select.

If you're the kind of filthy rich gamer who owns both an Oculus Rift headset and a pair of Oculus Touch controllers, then does Marvel ever have some smashing news for you. Hulk towers over the enemies and as you unleash his abilities you can see his hands come together for his trademark Hulk smash.

There's a fourth character on the roster that doesn't get any air time in the trailer, a certain Ronan the Accuser. If you can't make it to that event, you'll have to wait until 2018, when Marvel Powers United VR is officially released.
