The first season of MultiVersus content officially launched on Monday, and players got an unexpected surprise: Two newly confirmed fighters.Developers Player First Games and Warner Bros. ‘s Black Adam and Gremlin Stripes have revealed they’re on their way to MultiVersus with new artwork for the competitive platformer.
Black Adam joins DC heroes Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and anti-heroine Harley He Quinn and his MultiVersus. Captain Marvel’s (DC) former villain and nemesis, of course, is just as timely to arrive in MultiVersus as Black Adam (a superhero movie starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) hits theaters. The Black Adam movie is set to hit theaters in October, but a release date for MultiVersus’ Black Adam has yet to be announced.
He won’t even make an appearance with Stripe in MultiVersus, but Gremlins fans must be happy to know he’s wreaking havoc as Mogwai-fed-after-Midnight this season. Fans of Gremlins 2: New Batch can’t wait to see if (and when, let’s be honest) Stripe’s Greta skin will be revealed in Player First.
Black Adam and Stripe is the other confirmed addition to MultiVersus, Rick and Morty’s Rick and Morty should wait for him to join a free-to-play fighting game like Smash first. The good news is that Morty’s arrival is imminent. He plans to join MultiVersus on his August 1st. 23.
MultiVersus currently has a roster of 17 characters that can be unlocked with in-game currency earned while playing or premium currency sold on the free-to-play games marketplace. A Datamine leak in March hinted that characters like Harry Potter, Fred Flintstone, and Gremlins Gizmo would eventually join the game.
MultiVersus is available for download on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
