According to developers Gazillion, Black Bolt is available starting today via the Black Bolt Pack located in the PlayStation Store and Xbox Marketplace.

“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!”

Marvel Heroes Omega is out now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
