Marvel has been gearing up to fully launch their first mega VR video game experience with the help of a company named Occulus. The game entitled Marvel Powers United VR will allow players to catapult themselves right into the shoes of their favorite comicbook character from the world of Marvel, and we couldn’t be any more excited to give it a go!
So far, some of the playable characters that have been announced include Thor, Hulk, Deadpool, Rocket Racoon, Black Panther, Black Bolt, and Crystal. This will give the players a wide array of heroes to choose from when taking on some of the nastiest bad guys that Marvel has to offer. Recently announced are two pretty serious villains that will be sure to challenge your skills. First up is a certain black symbiote with a knack for trouble…
The official character description for Venom per ScreenRant reads:
“The creature known as Venom is the convergence of two beings who share a fierce hatred of Spider-Man: disgruntled journalist Eddie Brock, and a spurned alien symbiote. Bonded and fused at the molecular level, Venom possesses incredible new strength and abilities as well as knowledge of Spider-Man’s true identity. He is driven by an insatiable hunger to destroy Spider-Man and those who follow him.”
You’ll want to keep an eye on this villain, one slip-up and it could be your last.
Also announced is the murderous machine Ultron. He’s certain to present quite a challenge even for the most skillful players. Ultron’s description reads:
“Though the creation known as Ultron was created with the best of intentions, no one could have predicted that the sentient robot would rebel, becoming a threat to all humanity. After being driven off into the far reaches of the cosmos by the Avengers and their allies, it was believed Ultron had been destroyed. However, his frayed consciousness persisted until he came into contact with a techno-organic alien race which assisted him in unifying his fragmented consciousness back into focus and into a new upgraded body. Ultron has targeted Earth and its mighty heroes once again, but this time he is coming prepared with new powers, abilities and strong allies.”
In addition to the two new villains, two new playable heroes were just announced as well. Both Hawkeye and Black Widow have been added to the already stacked roster! Ready to play?
