Marvel Powers United VR, announced at Disney's D23 event on Saturday, will allow players a chance to step into the shoes of some familiar heroes as they destroy lots of stuff in VR.

D23 is where Disney wanted to showcase their commitment to continuing to bring a variety of games into various technological spaces.

The title is a collaborative effort between Marvel, Sanzaru Games, and Oculus Studios.

Three of those characters have been announced already: The Hulk, Captain Marvel and Rocket Raccoon.

The day virtual reality gamers have been hoping for has arrived: Marvel is launching a VR game that will let you take on the role of some of the best-known heroes in Marvel universe. Suit up, power up, and team up with friends to engage in immersive, explosive co-op fights from across the Marvel Universe.

Each time you play, you won't know which faction or boss you'll encounter-every experience will play a little differently.

There's a fourth character on the roster that doesn't get any air time in the trailer, a certain Ronan the Accuser. "Be the hero and unleash your powers now!" Transform into your favorite Marvel Super Hero and wield their awesome powers and weaponry in your hands. Move freely through iconic environments on the ground, in-flight, or with special moves with intuitive controls and smart locomotion. These are some pretty cool ideas on display to make a game for virtual reality in the spirit of the Avengers and Marvel's characters. Facebook has even lowered the price to $399.99 for both the Rift VR headset and Oculus Touch motion controllers as a way to lure people into buying the system.
