With the ABC mini-series Inhumans currently making the rounds, it only makes sense for the characters to cross over into the video game world. We already know the Inhumans are making their presence felt in Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 next month, and now Black Bolt is ready to fight in another game – Marvel Heroes Omega!
Gazillion announced the arrival of the character today as a playable character, and in a costume similar to the get-up that he wears in the Inhumans TV series.
“The king of Attilan may not have as much to say as the other 42 playable Marvel Heroes Omega characters but, thanks to his ability to channel and manipulate electrons and particles, a mere whisper from the King of the Inhumans can destroy an entire civilization. His actions don’t speak louder than his words—his words are his actions,” the team noted in a press release. You can see several of these moves in action in the attached gallery.
“He’s a great choice for beginners to Marvel Heroes Omega and veterans alike,” says Gazillion Senior Designer Ben Gilbert, who helped develop the character’s in-game abilities. “I personally prefer to focus on melee, using the Master Blow talent to swap out his Signature for a heavy-hitting melee one. At the same time, my fellow designer Brian Waggoner prefers his ranged build, blasting enemies to smithereens from afar, occasionally using the slightest whisper to annihilate entire groups.”
Anyone who’s ever said “words can never hurt me” has never met Black Bolt, and his Ultimate ability demonstrates this with tremendously destructive results. “His Ultimate is called ‘Royal Decree,’ and it’s quite a thing to behold,” says Gilbert. “Black Bolt unleashes the full potential of his voice in a reality-rending yell that instantly vaporizes non-boss enemies and decimates everything else. Black Bolt is a unique blend of a ranged energy blaster and a mobile scrapper—with spectacular visuals fit for a king!”
The character is available for download now, and you can check out Black Bolt’s debut trailer above. Prepare for an Inhuman shock!
Marvel Heroes Omega is available now for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
