More than a dozen characters are expected to be playable, so we can expect many more to come soon, though these four are the only ones that the game's site has listed at this time.

In the wake of a handful of video game and movie reveals at Disney's D23 Expo, Marvel Entertainment, Oculus Studios, and Sanzaru Games have announced Marvel Powers United VR, a brand new VR game which is in development exclusively for the Oculus Rift. Some of the confirmed controllable character so far include Rocket Racoon, Mrs. Marvel, The Hulk, and Conan the Accuser, each featuring their own unique gameplay style. You can play as various Marvel characters, from the Incredible Hulk to Rocket Raccoon from Guardians of the Galaxy. They mention over on the official website that there will be "smart" "locomotion" implemented into the game, so you won't just teleport around. Suit up, power up, and team up with friends to engage in immersive, explosive co-op fights from across the Marvel Universe. Powers United VR is slated for release in 2018.

Each time you play, you won't know which faction or boss you'll encounter-every experience will play a little differently. Transform into your favorite Marvel Super Hero and wield their awesome powers and weaponry in your hands.
