Marvel Powers United VR is only days away from release for the Oculus Rift, and yesterday at San Diego Comic-Con Oculus announced that a Rift bundle will be available for anyone that is tempted to jump into VR and live out their superhero fantasies. That special edition bundle just went up for pre-order on Amazon for $399 with a release date slated for July 31st. It includes the VR headset, two Touch controllers and the game.
That’s a pretty solid deal when you consider that the bundle is priced the same as the standard Oculus Rift headset. In other words, you get the game as a free bonus (if you already own an Oculus Rift, the game will set you back an additional $40 when it arrives on July 26th). If you still need a little convincing, the following launch trailer for Marvel Powers United VR might be enough to push you over the edge.
Playable characters include: Captain America, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, Wolverine, Iceman, Storm, Thor, Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Deadpool, Rocket Raccoon, Hulk, Crystal, Black Bolt, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Star-Lord, and Gamora.
Villains that you will battle in the game include: Ronan the Accuser, Loki, Venom, Ultron, Magneto, Dormammu, Madame Hydra, Scientist Supreme, and Thanos.
