Surprise! The Void just announced its Marvel VR experience, Avengers: Damage Control.
We first reported that The Void was making a Marvel VR experience earlier this year. The company creates location-based VR experiences often based on popular IP like Wreck it Ralph and Star Wars. Today, the company surprise revealed its Marvel project, which will be launching on October 18. You can get tickets right here. Check out a teaser trailer below (which features Shuri herself, Letitia Wright).

Avengers: Damage Control Details
In Avengers: Damage Control, players are recruited by childhood prodigy Shuri to test an experimental armor. As you can see from the trailer, the prototype suit combines technologies used in both the Iron Man and Blank Panther suits. A website reveals that Doctor Strange, the Wasp and Ant-Man will appear in the experience alongside other Avengers. The piece will also feature a villain from the series’ history.
That’s all we know for now. The name Damage Control itself is a Marvel easter egg, though. In the comics, this is the name of an organization that cleans up after big superhero battles. Tony Stark coined the term in the MCU for its debut in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Damage Control is developed by ILMxLAB, the studio that also worked on The Void’s Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire. It also just launched the second episode of Vader Immortal.
The Void says Damage Control will be available for a limited time only. For now, it’s available in the US and Canada, with no word on a possible launch overseas. Tickets start from $39.95.
Elsewhere, we also know the company is working on a new experience with Sony Pictures that’s yet to be revealed.
