It is finally here. Warner Bros. Games announced on Tuesday that the open beta of MultiVersus, the new free-to-play platform combat game from Player First Games, is now available. Players can therefore download the game (which is reminiscent of a certain SmashBros) on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One and PC. Recall that “MultiVersus” allows cross-play between consoles and will also support a rollback netcode based on a dedicated server for strong online competition.
MultiVersus brings together a variety of heroes and personalities to face or team up with, including Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn (DC); Sammy and Vera (Scooby-Doo); Bugs Bunny and the Tasmanian Devil aka Taz (Looney Tunes); Arya Stark (Game of Thrones); Tom & Jerry (Tom and Jerry); Jake the dog and Finn the human (Adventure Time); Steven Universe and Garnet (Steven Universe); Iron Giant (The Iron Giant); LeBron James (Space Jam – New Era); Rick Sanchez and Morty Smith (Rick and Morty); an extraordinary original creature named Chien-Reindeer; and many more to come in the next few weeks.
We know, for example, that the character of LeBron James (Space Jam – New Era) is playable today and that Morty will be available when season 1 of MultiVersus begins on August 9. Rick will also be part of Season 1 and will join the roster on August 23.
Players have multiple ways to experience MultiVersus including team co-op, 2v2, 1v1 matches, 4-player Free For All, The Lab (practice mode), and added local matches can accommodate up to four opponents. Multiplayer battles take place in mythical places, such as the Batcave (DC), the Tree-House (Adventure Time), the Haunted Mansion of Scooby-Doo (Scooby-Doo), the Sky Arena (Steven Universe) and many others…
