Oculus will start selling a Rift bundle with Marvel Powers United VR next weekJuly 20, 2018
For those who’ve been on the fence about jumping into high-end virtual reality, Oculus VR is trying to sweeten the deal ahead of the launch of its new flagship game, Marvel Powers United VR. The title features a number of official Marvel heroes as playable characters in a co-op narrative-focused brawler, and it’s due out next week on July 29th.
Today at San Diego Comic-Con, Oculus, which funded the game produced alongside developer Sanzaru Games, is announcing a retail bundle for $399 that will come with a free copy of the game, a Rift headset, and two Touch controllers. Marvel Powers United VR is slated to retail for $39.99.
The standard Oculus Rift headset costs about that much, so this is reasonable way to get your hands on the product alongside a game that features a solid range of VR experiences — from multiplayer co-op play to story-driven single-player missions. The full Marvel lineup featured in the game was also revealed today, and it includes big names like Black Widow, Captain America, the Hulk, Spider-Man, Storm, and Wolverine.

Correction: The initial version of this article said Marvel Powers United VR’s full character list would be revealed next week with the game’s launch. That is incorrect; the full list has been revealed today.
