Since its July reveal, Marvel Powers United VR has been building its roster of playable characters, with Hulk, Captain Marvel and Rocket Raccoon the first, followed by Deadpool. Now there’s another two to add to that list, slightly less well known characters Black Bolt and Crystal.
Black Bolt and Crystal are classed as Inhumans, race of genetically altered superhumans. Black Bolt is the ruler of these beings, with his superpower being his voice. With it he can smash enemies aside with ease – in the comics it’s powerful enough to level cities so the character never speaks.
Crystal meanwhile has the ability to control the elements, earth, air, fire and water, plus other natural phenomena such as metals and electricity. In the comics she often appears with her teleporting canine companion, Lockjaw who just so happens to also feature in the announcement video.
Marvel Powers United VR will be exclusive to Oculus Rift and Touch when it releases in 2018. 12 superheroes are said to feature in the videogame, so with six revealed there are still plenty of slots to fill with your favourite characters.
