Here’s what the Marvel’s own virtual reality game to be called, the Powers United VR. Today the studio Disney’s D23 Expo has covered all the aspects of its entertainment empire, has revealed that virtual reality is coming to the Marvel universe. Everything we got now are the details for you and loving VR game players.
According to the report, Marvel Powers United VR is being made by Oculus and Sanzaru Games, and will let players step into the shoes of characters like The Hulk, Captain Marvel, or Rocket Raccoon. This announcement came directly during the “Level Up” gaming panel, also included updates about Star Wars: Battlefront II and Insomniac Games’ upcoming Spider-Man game.
The virtual reality gaming will be exclusive to the Oculus Rift headset and Touch controllers. Perhaps, one of the big selling pints is that it’s actually going to be a co-op experience. Multiple players can team up, each time on the role of a different Marvel character, to play together in joint missions.
Best to know that Disney is planning on announcing additional characters for the virtual reality games starting next week at San Diego Comic-Con, with Powers United VR itself targeted for a 2018 release.
Aside from the list of Marvel characters themselves, the multiplayer aspect of the game has the potential to help it really stand out. Much similar to Star Trek Bridge Crew, another VR game built around the idea of multiple players collaborating towards a common goal. Sounds like a perfect title for location-based VR installations, though. Whether in standalone VR arcades, or a potential set-up in a movie theater or other locations, multiplayer VR games should eventually help encourage adoption by incentivizing players to bring in friends that otherwise haven’t tried the system or platform, growing the base of people used to playing and playing for VR.
