A little earlier today Sanzaru Games revealed two new locations which players would be able to fight in next week when Marvel Powers United VR arrives. While these are designed as teasing reveals, what you really want to see is gameplay footage and that’s what VRFocus has for you now, featuring everyone’s favourite green skinned character, Hulk (sorry Gamora).
As you’d expect from the muscle bound giant everything he does involves a good old smashing, as VRFocus’ video producer Nina Salomons found out during a recent gameplay session. Playing a round in the Sakaar Arena, most of Hulk’s primary moves are all about getting up close and personal thanks to his Gamma Leap. Of course he is a superhero so he does have a few extra special abilities like the Seismic Pound and the Thunder Clap which is great for splash damage.
Unlike our previous gameplay video for Deadpool, Hulk has a lot less to say whilst he’s slaying bad guys with a couple of dialogue lines and plenty of grunting. In the mission Nina plays she needs to protect a shield generator found at the centre of the arena, before grabbing several power cells. Hulk generally doesn’t seem too flustered by the small enemies around him, and can even pick up several weapons laying around to mix up the combat.
This is all simple enough until Kree zealot Ronan the Accuser and Loki then turn up to ruin the party. As the level bosses, they do have increased health and abilities requiring a team effort to dispatch.
Marvel Powers United VR will launch for Oculus Rift next Thursday, 26th July. Players will also be able to choose heroes including Starlord, Gamora, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Rocket Racoon, Crystal, and Thor. While bad guys who’ll take the form of boss encounters include Magneto, Dormammu, Venom, Ultron, Madame Hydra and Scientist Supreme.
