Last week, we kicked off pre-orders of MARVEL Powers United VR—an upcoming multiplayer Rift title that lets you become your favorite Marvel heroes in an intense full-body gaming experience. When the game ships on July 26, it’ll be jam-packed with 18 playable Super Heroes, eight villainous bosses, and 10 iconic environments. Today, Marvel Games, Sanzaru Games, and Oculus Studios are excited to announce that famed Avengers Black Widow and Hawkeye are the latest Super Heroes to hit the MARVEL Powers United VR roster!
A specialist in espionage, Natasha Romanova finds her true calling as the Black Widow! Using her highly trained—and deadly—skill set to protect the world, Black Widow brings a decisively strategic element to the team with her Widows Bite gauntlets, elite marksmanship, and unmatched espionage excellence.
Also trained at an early age, Clint Barton boasts world-renowned archery skills that are second-to-none—and his ability with a bow and arrow is equal to the superhuman powers wielded by many of his friends and foes. Hawkeye’s Bow Shot and combination of specially-tipped Trick Shots make him even on the battlefield as the team faces off against evil enemies.
Stay tuned to the Oculus subreddit early next week for some never-before-seen game art, followed by our most epic villain reveal yet. And one week from today, we’ll peel back the curtain on another pair of playable heroes.
