Clearly, Oculus is hoping that its upcoming superhero action game, Marvel: Powers United VR, will be big enough to sell a few Rifts. To that end, it’s introducing a new bundle for anyone that hasn’t picked the VR headset up yet.
The Marvel: Powers United VR bundle, revealed at San Diego Comic-Con today, comes with the Rift, a pair of Touch controllers that are required to play the game, and a copy of the experience. We’re particularly fond of the box art, which features just-announced characters like Captain America, Wolverine and Spider-Man as well as already-confirmed heroes like The Hulk, Black Panther and Captain Marvel. We took the above photo of it at an event this week.
While we call this a bundle, it’s more just a case that everyone that buys a Rift from next week could get Marvel for free; the pack costs the same price as the normal Rift package at $399.99.
In the game, you team up with up to four friends and visit a range of locations across the Marvel universe, including Wakanda, Asgard and New York. Each level has a series of objectives you have to complete while fending off swarms of enemies. Classic Marvel villains like Venom, Ultron and Loki will try and put a stop to you before you’re given a shot at taking down Avengers: Infinity War villain, Thanos himself.
The game’s set to launch on July 26th for $39.99. We’ll have a full review for you in the coming days.
