Hawkeye and Blackwidow—not the most important, or even most powerful character’s in the Marvel Universe—but the underappreciated Avengers are coming to Sanzaru Games and Oculus Studio’s upcoming co-op game MARVEL Powers United VR just the same.

Oculus has been doing piecemeal reveals for the past few days on their blog, charging up the Marvel VR hypetrain as it’s just about to leave the station. To boot, the company posted a new video featuring the characters, which gives you a quick idea of what abilities each hero has.

At the time of this writing, the full character line up is: Black Widow, Hawkeye, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, The Hulk, Rocket Raccoon, Deadpool, Black Bolt, Crystal, and Thor.

Marvel Powers United VR is slated to arrive on Rift July 26th, and will ship on with 18 playable heroes, eight villains to battle, and ten recognizable locations.

Here’s the character bios in case you haven’t followed the films or comics closely.

Hawkeye: Orphaned at a young age and protégé to a master archer, Clint Barton is one of the world’s greatest marksmen. His archery skills have be honed through rigorous training and commitment to never miss a shot, and his ability with a bow and arrow is equal to the superhuman powers of many of his teammates and foes. His Bow Shot and combination of specially tipped Trick Shots keep him even on the battlefield with his team and the enemies they face.

Black Widow: A specialist in espionage, Natasha Romanova finds her true calling as the Black Widow! Using her highly trained-and deadly-skill set to protect the world, Black Widow brings a decisively strategic element to the team with her Widows Bite gauntlets, elite marksmanship, and unmatched espionage excellence.

    The only real question that no one is answering is… will be playable with revive?

      That is because it can only be answered when the game is released.

    All the trailler gameplay videos of this game are boring as hell. What is wrong with these people? They got the Marvel franchise but don`t have the money to hire real game developers? Everytime that I see a footage video from this title I see a plain arena with very dumb A.I mobsters and zero level design. Lazy. Very lazy.
