When was the MultiVersus Black Adam release date? MultiVersus took the world by storm when its beta launched, with its Smash Bros-like gameplay and cast of on-brand characters. Back then, developer Player First Games wasted little time expanding the roster of playable characters on PlayStation and Xbox.

Black Adam was one such character, with the DC Comics antihero arriving shortly after the release of his own movie. But when exactly did Black Adam get released into the fighting game? And what did he play like at launch?

The Multiversus Black Adam release date was October 31, 2022. The Bruiser launched a week after his reveal trailer, which had him flash up on a retro-style arcade machine. Funnily enough, Black Adam was actually first revealed back in August 2022 alongside Stripe.

MultiVersus Black Adam gameplay

Black Adam excels when it comes to getting up close and personal. But that’s not to say he’s a slouch at range. He can also inflict the shocked debuff on opponents with certain abilities, making him a bit of a 2v2 monster. As we can see from the gameplay trailer below, he can also fly more freely than Superman, allowing him to zoom across the ring at pace. Even after the relaunch, Black Adam’s playstyle remains pretty much intact, so the trailer is still a decent gauge of what he’s like to play.
