San Diego Comic Con attendees will get the chance to try out MARVEL Powers United VR during the show (July 19-23).

Marvel announced today their partnership with Oculus in developing Marvel Powers United VR to be compatible with the Oculus Rift and Touch. Just announced during Disney's D23 Expo, the game will be launching in 2018 with several playable characters.

The first-person title will also feature four-person co-op play, where the heroes will fight against Marvel's villains.

Next year, you'll be able to become the Hulk, among 11 other famous Marvel characters, in virtual reality. During the panel, an announcement trailer was released, giving gamers a glimpse of what they can experience as one of Marvel's mightiest heroes. There are plans for more than a dozen characters from the Marvel comics and films to be available to select. Hulk towers over the enemies and as you unleash his abilities you can see his hands come together for his trademark Hulk smash. As Rocket, you'll get to guns as you blast everything around you. The inclusion of Captain Marvel is particularly interesting as it suggests that heroes not included in the Marvel cinematic universe - at least not yet - might make an appearance in the game.

The game is being jointly developed by Marvel, Sanzaru, and Oculus Studios.

Powers United VR, an Oculus-exclusive, looks pretty similar to existing VR wave shooters like Robo Recall, though its multiplayer could spice things up a bit.
