We’ve been hearing about the upcoming Marvel Powers United VR game for quite some time now. Oculus has been releasing constant updates about newly announced characters and locations for their Rift title. Luckily, you won’t have to wait for much longer, since the game is set to release next week.
So in anticipation for that release, Oculus has revealed a Marvel Powers United VR bundle at the San Diego Comic-Con. Well, a bundle in as much the sense that Sony releases bundles for their PlayStation hardware – you get a cool looking box with some of the more well-known Marvel characters set to feature in the game on the cover and a brand spanking new Rift along with a digital copy of the game. The special edition bundle will be available from the Marvel Powers United VR site, along with certain participating retailers. The bundle will go for the normal Rift price of $399.99 US. Pre-orders start today.
Along with the bundle, which shows off some of the more recently announced characters, including Wolverine, Spider-Man, and Captain America, Oculus has also released a new launch trailer which shows off the previously unrevealed characters, including Doctor Strange, Storm, and Iceman. The fighting in the trailer takes place in some newly revealed places as well, which includes New York, Asgard, and Wakanda.
Check out the launch trailer below:
So the total lineup for Marvel Powers United VR is now comprised of 18 heroes and nine villains, with one of Marvel’s biggest baddies – Thanos – being the latest revealed character. If you’re not yet familiar with the upcoming game, Marvel Powers United VR puts you in the super boots of your favorite Marvel characters in four player online co-op fights that play out across various iconic locations in the universe. Each fight will be objective-based and you and your team will have to work together against the villains and their minions.
So if this is getting you excited then all you have to do is wait for next week to get your hands on a copy. Marvel Powers United VR is set to release on July 26th for $39.99 US and is available now for pre-order.
