Marvel Games made it clear back in May that they have plans to release major VR titles in the near future, and the studio didn’t disappoint.
During the Level Up! The Walt Disney Company’s Video Game Showcase panel at the D23 Expo yesterday, Marvel Games announced Powers United VR. Powers United VR allows players to play as some of their favourite characters from the Marvel universe, as they embark on a journey to “reclaim the Cosmic Cube and restore order to the universe.”
Marvel Powers United VR tells the story of The Masters of Evil—a mysterious, nefarious alliance of powerful Super Villains from across the Marvel Universe—who have managed to steal the Cosmic Cube and use it to tear apart the universe, forging new realities subservient to their rule. Suddenly, heroes from across the Marvel Universe are hurled together in a chaotic, interdimensional conflict spanning past, present, and alternate futures to fight to reclaim the Cosmic Cube and restore order to the universe.
Each time you play, you won’t know which faction or boss you’ll encounter—every experience will play a little differently. One time you may get the Kree and Ronan The Accuser as a boss; another time you’ll get something totally different.
