OC4: Thor Is Coming To Marvel: Powers United

by Jamie Feltham • October 11th, 2017

Just ahead of the launch of his new movie next month, thunder god Thor has been confirmed for the upcoming Marvel: Powers United.

Thor made his debut during the Oculus Connect keynote talk today. A trailer for the game, developed by Ripcoil creator Sanzaru Games, shows the hero battling alongside Hulk in an arena similar to the one seen in the trailers for Thor: Ragnarok. Hulk is in his gladiator attire, too, riffing on the classic Planet Hulk storyline.

The thunder god, meanwhile, uses his mythical hammer, Mjolnir, to beat back enemies with brute force. Along with Hulk, he’ll join Black Bolt, Crystal, Deadpool, Captain Marvel and Rocket Raccoon in the four-player co-op game when it launches in 2018. We’re expecting plenty more characters going forward, too.

    Like most vr games, it looks like it will be fun for an hour or two and will get old fast after that. Vr works great for short arcade like experiences but most developers aren’t gonna invest in the time or money to make a vr only game that has substantial content.I haven’t used my Oculus in months but when I get back into it in a couple of years or so I think I’m gonna move over to Vive because they have a lot more going for it especially with the better sensors and range.

      If you haven’t used it in months, then you’ve missed the best games on VR. Anyone not playing Lone Echo and Arktika.1 just isn’t meant for VR. Many more great games also released during that time period, and several huge ones are still slated for the holiday season. I just don’t think you like VR.

        It’s probably not a good idea to frame your opinions as facts because Vive owners are the some of the biggest vr enthusiasts out there and not all of them will use workarounds to play these games. I also don’t believe in the idea of “missing out” on most nonessential things in life, especially when it comes to video games. I used to enjoy vr very much and even had a part time job promoting it. But i simply don’t have any desire to go back to it right now and spend more money on more software and games for it.

          You missed the point about Vive entirely. And it’s, frankly, stupid to think that you can’t “miss out” on nonessential things. In fact, that’s it’s most frequently used meaning. No one says that they missed out on food. LOL you’re just crying because you think I insulted Vive, but I didn’t.

      In a couple of years expect inside out tracking to be the norm for VR. There won’t be sensors on any of these.
