MARVEL Powers United VR is a fast-paced cooperative multiplayer action game based on Marvel's superheroes. In the game players will get a chance to literally get into the shoes of their favorite Marvel superheroes, including Deadpool, Rocket Raccoon, Captain Marvel, the Incredible Hulk and many others.
Of course, each character has its own unique abilities, like Rocket Raccoon can fly with his jetpack and use his dual pistols or rocket launcher to deal damage to enemies from above. In the gameplay trailer, you can see Rocket Raccoon dealing some heavy damage and getting some nice kill streak bonuses. Deadpool, for example, can use his hand cannons for mid-range damage and his twin katanas for taking out enemies up close. There is also the huge green-skinned Hulk which can deal massive blows and pick up enemies and throw them, dealing massive damage. Have you ever wondered how it would be like being the Incredible Hulk, well, now you have a chance.
This is one of the great things about VR games, it's the only game medium that allows you to get to experience how it is like being another person, in this case, a Marvel superhero.
Watching the gameplay trailers, I did notice that some characters use teleportation and free movement. I don't know if this is for all characters but it's nice to see that the option for free movement is available as well.
The visuals in this game are impressive like we can expect from a Marvel-branded videogame, very vivid and feels very cheerful and alive. I personally really liked the particle effects and the level design. You can check out the rocket Racooon gameplay video below or on YouTube and there is a level with a stunning background.
In the gameplay videos, you can see that the game is made of several missions. After each mission you can get to see which of the players achieved the most kills, the most deaths, most revived, most damage taken, most damage dealt, etc.
Marvel Powers United VR looks like a great co-op game to play with friends, especially if you are a big fan of Marvel comics or movies.
Right now all we know that Marvel Powers United VR is an Oculus Rift exclusive title and it's playable with the Oculus Touch controllers. We will add more information about the game once it's available.
